Organizing Bag or Purse Clutter

Mar 12, 2013
Call me nosy, but I'm always curious about what other women carry in their bags. This is what I usually carry in mine:

  • Wallet
  • Coin Purse
  • House Keys
  • Cell Phone
  • Pack of Wet Wipes
  • Gum
  • Candy or Mints
  • Medicine
  • Feminine Products
  • Lip Balm & Lip Gloss
  • Lubricating Eye Drops
  • Contact Lens Remover
  • Reusable Shopping Bag
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Pack of Tissues

After a few weeks, my bag more often than not, ALSO ends up with these things:

  • Old Receipts
  • Loose Coins
  • Candy and Gum Wrappers
  • Crumpled Tissue


So I try to de-clutter my bag every few weeks or so. 

One thing that was really bugging me though, was that because I had so many little items in my bag, when I would reach in to get something I would rummage around for awhile before I would find what I was looking for.

To solve that problem, I gathered all the small stuff that was cluttering up my bag, and organized them with a couple of previously unused, zippered pouches that I already had.

Then I put these small pouches in my bag and now it's much easier to get things out of my bag when I need them. 

What's in your bag?? I'd love to know!

  1. I have found that a business card holder makes a great purse caddy for keeping those millions of insurance/customer/bank cards organized.
