1- Consolidate your Purse Loose Items into Zipper Pouches.
Let me tell you, that day I discovered zipper pouches is the day that all my organization dreams came true! Ha-ha! Dramatic? Maybe a little! But I am serious! I use them EVERYWHERE and for EVERYTHING.
And now I am using them to contain and organize all the things in my purse.
I no longer have things rolling around loose in my purse! Everything in my purse has a home, and I know exactly where to find it when I need it. AND – this has made switching between purses WAY easier too!
I recommend creating categories for your zipper pouches based on items you most commonly carry around in your purse and really need. And then label each category.
As you come up with your zipper pouch categories use this time to purge and re-home items that you may have accumulated in your purse that you don’t need to have with you at all times.
Because everyone’s purse contents are different I won’t give you a specific list of things you “should” carry in your purse. Instead, I’ll share what my categories are and some of my must-have purse essentials to give you some ideas.
Here are my categories and what each of my categories contains:
- Extra Clean Masks Pouch
- Dirty Masks Pouch
You can create more categories rather than lump them all together as I do, but this works for me at the moment.
And if I ever need to add anything else into my purse, it goes into my “accessories” zipper pouch. And/or I can always revisit my categories and create more if needed.
All that to say, you can create as many categories as you’d like. Just make sure you give ALL your purse essentials a home.
What I used to create categorized pouches.
- label makers: Target | Sams Club. I used the one from Sams Club for this.
- exact size zipper pouches I used in my purse. Size A6.
2- Use Cord Ties to Secure all your Cords/Cables.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t stand when my chargers, earphones, etc. get all tangled up in my purse! Ever since I used cord ties to organize all the cords/cables in our home, I couldn’t go back to not using them! I seriously don’t know how I lived without them all this time.
I know there are a ton of cute/fancy cord ties out there, but I prefer and recommend these simple black ones. Why? Because they are inexpensive and if I lose one, I won’t feel too bad. And they work just as well as the expensive ones.
3- Use a Wristlet Strap to Keep Keys Handy.
I couldn’t find mine I got it years ago, but here is a pretty similar one. A wristlet strap is a must, in my opinion. With this product, you can either hang the keys around your wrist or clip your keys inside your purse.
I prefer clipping mine to the inside of my purse so I can easily pull my keys out when needed. But I also sometimes just keep them around my wrist. Either way, they stay handy and easy to find.
Or you can also use a pocket in your purse. Either way, give your keys a designated home in your purse, this way you always know where they are at and they don’t end up at the very bottom of your purse!
4- Assign a use to the Pockets built into the Purse.
I recommend using the outside pockets of your purse for items used most often.
For example, in the purse shown in this post, I use the front lower pocket of my purse for my phone. I can easily grab it and put it away.
I use the back top pocket of my purse for hand sanitizer, hand lotion, and wipes because I use those items often. And prefer to not have to stick my hands in and out of the inside of my purse if I don’t have to. And also, I leave one outside pocket empty for snacks. Snacks such as protein bars, and granola bars.
All that to say, don’t forget about those pockets!
And there you have it! Did this give you the motivation to get your purse organized? Yes? I hope so! Let me know how these ideas work out for you if you decide to give these inside your purse organization ideas a try!
