WARNING: boring post about purse organization


i just thought you should know that
ahead of time.

in case you are looking for something more,
i don't know, jazzy... or funky,
look here and here.

and now, my purse...

i have a little system, see?
my system is 3 zippered pouches.
different sizes,
different colors,
different stuff inside.
with them, i can find what i'm looking for.
they keep my purse orderly.
which, in turn,
keeps my brain orderly.
{less chaos ~ more peace}
they also make it easy to switch purses.

my system
the real reason for this post...
three zippered pouches: green, pink, blue

contents of zippered pouches

blue pouch: my phone

pink pouch: make up
lip gloss, perfume, hair things, nail clippers

green pouch: money
wallet, coupons, lists & pen, quarters

works for me.
what works for you?

They would all fit nicely into a real purse organizer which I know you own. Love, Mom

oh... this is GOOD stuff Catie! :) I have one (or two) little bags inside my purse (and actually just did this recently to help me stay more peacefully organized.) :) and it seems to be helping. Love your purple bag! and your different size, different colors bags for INSIDE your purple bag (or whatever other color bag you place them in.) Nope. Not boring AT ALL. :) love San

mom ~ yes, i DO have a real purse organizer, don't i? : ) thought i'd share my "other" system before i tried a new one.

dawn ~ thanks for letting me add your jazzy/funky links.

sandi ~ yes, peace is the goal & the colors do help me find things fast.

virginia ~ those pouches are from my emily... i think she found them at MOMA years ago. the label says "gecko traders" ~ here's a link

although any kind of zippered set would work, i do love mine. they seem to be universally out of stock.
