If you’re anything like me, you may or may not have a bazillion purses. I have a bag for every outfit, occasion and mood. It’s not an obsession, it’s a necessity… what you not gon’ do is judge me madam!
Anywho, in addition to being a fashion lover, I’m also a mama and that means that I have an insane amount of stuff in my purse at any given time. Exhibit A:
I’ve got pain reliever, stain remover, deodorant, Lysol (because germs), lotion, lip balm, lipstick, multiple notepads (I get my best ideas on the go), band aids and more. So. Much. More. This picture is just the tip of the iceberg.
If you switch out your bags as much as I do, you’re bound to forget something in the switch and whatever it is, you won’t realize how much you need it until you don’t have it (like my ponytail holder during zumba class, ugh). The solution: Pouches!
So. Friggin’. Simple.
Keep all your essentials organized in small pouches that can fit inside your larger purse. Exhibit B:
I stick all of my essentials into a pouch (I got this pretty little number from Michael’s for $4.99) so when I need to switch handbags, I can just grab the pouch and pop it into the new bag. You can even use a few pouches and organize them into different categories like: daytime, day to evening and evening. Check out this clip from The Chew to see how it works:

You can even use pouches to keep your luggage organized on a trip or for extra smart mama credit, keep a separate pouch for each kid. Organization on #fleek.
What say you? Do you have a purse organization secret?
