Ladies, ladies, ladies! It’s time to get those cute, frilly, blingy, trendy, strapped, and clutched handbags organized. Stop carrying your junk drawer in the bottom of your purse and start showing off a confident put-together you. It’s not all about finding just the right purse with a few pockets but compartmentalizing the contents within your purse.

The inside of a woman’s handbag often tells a lot about her. Does she have kids, is she into fashion, and of course, is she organized? Just think about the impression you might make at a job interview with a cluttered purse. A disorganized purse might mean a chaotic personal and professional life too… not great for landing the job.

Each of us has seen someone digging through their cluttered purse frantically looking for something; pulling out clothing, food wrappers, receipts and even bills that still need to be paid. It is normal to think that a person unable to keep an organized purse might have that same trouble in other areas of their life.

If any of these circumstances sound like you, then make a more put-together impression and get your cluttered contents organized. First, buy a wallet that fits your lifestyle – cute is fun but it may not be functional. Next, compartmentalize the contents of your purse into small cosmetic type bags. Gather feminine products, cough drops, and tissues in one bag. Put makeup and travel size style products in another. Use as many bags as needed to organize the items you normally carry.

Instead of using all black or brown cosmetic type bags try using different designs or colors. This will make it easy when opening your purse to find what you need quickly. These bags can be found at local discount stores or department stores. Check after Christmas when stores cut prices by 50% on beauty sets and cosmetic bags. I buy a lot and use them for myself and as gifts. However, Christmas is a long way away and I know you want to get your purse organized now. Try your local Target, Walmart, The Container Store, and online at Vera Bradley, Walker Bags or ThirtyOne. For compartmentalizing gift cards, store cards, and even business cards, pick from one of the many trendy Card Cubby’s organizers. They are extremely classy, stylish, and so functional for everyone’s purse.

Lastly, there is a purse organizing product called Kangaroo Keeper, sold online or in stores such as Bed, Bath and Beyond. This keeper comes in different colors and two different sizes. It fits in most purses and can be moved from purse to purse without unloading the contents. Try this product if you like to change purses frequently and keep everything organized. Whatever you end up using get those purses cleaned out and organized…and who knows how much money you may unexpectedly find in the bottom of your purse.
