What's in My Handbag - The Organized Edition!

Hi!

This is the organized edition of what's in my bag. Not that I've ever done a disorganized version, but anyway.

First off, this is my bag.


It's a good old Penneys reliable, cost about €11 over a year ago (although I've recently seen a beige version in store) and it's the ideal size for me. I also love that it has handles and a shoulder strap. I'm not showing you the tissues or receipts, nor am I showing you my passport or hospital pregnancy card, but here's the rest of what I carry in there:


Top Row - Wallet (Penneys again), Prescription Sunglasses, MP3 player, and leather bike gloves (sure why not).

Bottom Row - hair bands, hand cream, Prevalin allergy spray, Nivea lip butter, Lacoste & FM perfumes, MUA lipstick (shade: Bare), and 3 Apocalips. Sure deodorant, 5 pens (?!), a mini torch, Boots card, Weightwatchers calculator (not following it at the moment but it's always handy to have), little card with an Irish Blessing on it (no, I don't know why), and two notebooks - Animal from the Muppets and my recipe/blogging/shopping list/address book. And a pink pen.

I also had my Nintendo 3DS in its carry case in there too. (Harvest Moon FTW!)

While it's not a massive amount of stuff compared to some of the rubbish that could be in there, I still have a hard time finding stuff sometimes.

Enter this.




This little beauty is a handbag organizer, and it set me back approximately two of my finest Euros on eBay (link here). I ordered on June 21st and received it less than a week later. It's brilliant - I fit everything except the two big notebooks into it.


It fits in my bag with loads of room to spare and I know exactly where everything is now. If I want to change handbags, I just need to swap products around and move the whole thing into another bag. This organizer would also be really handy for tote bags or cotton shoppers that don't have pockets.

  3. Oohh so tidy!! I'd be ashamed to show anyone the bottom of my handbags, they turn into an absolute state strewn with rogue tic tacs and receipts!

    1. Far from it!! I definitely recommend getting the prescription sunnies, even though it really annoys me that I can't buy the cheaper sunglasses from high street shops, it's worth it to have one decent pair. x

  6. I have one of those organisers, it only came in pink when I got it. I thought I would hate it but actually it helps show things up in a black bag. Very useful :)

  7. Love that organiser, so handy. I tend to just use 1 handbag even though I have tonnes as I'm too lazy to switch everything around. This would make life easier and help me make more use of the rest of my collection.
