Updated Purse Organization ~ Spring 2014



I am quite particular about keeping my purse organized. I like to know where things are and have it neat. I don't like things just thrown in there...nor do I like things in there that don't belong (trash etc.).

I thought you may enjoy seeing how I am organizing my purse this spring. :) Above is the picture of my bag from the outside. I just love the huge flower!

And here is how you will see my bag on the inside (at any time...I always keep it this same way)...


What's all inside, you may ask? Well, let me show you...



 This is a small Vera Bradley wallet (which I found inexpensively on ebay) that keeps my iPod safe. I haven't had an iPod very long, but it was necessary to own since I began teaching spinning classes at our local Y...


 My phone (a simple flip phone...I don't use it for much like most people do. I don't even text! It's mainly a "just in case" phone. I am not against phones...but just don't feel like people need to find me *all* the time, does that make sense?), a couple pens, Chapstick (cake batter ~ yum!), Lip Gloss from Avon, and my peppermint essential oil roll-on for headaches or whatever I may need it for while on the go...



 My kindle case and filofax (which serves as my bill-paying-register and checkbook which I may do an updated post on soon)...


Here is my kindle. It is nothing fancy...just a simple one that I bought on super-sale from Amazon. I have downloaded loads of books for free (mostly theology) and it is great to have to read while waiting at a dr's appointment or if stuck in traffic etc. The case was bought on Etsy (I love Etsy!) from THIS store. My kindle tucks perfectly in there and then sits safely in my bag!


This little gem holds feminine products (not overly interesting, but I thought I would mention it!)...


This is my keep-all container. I keep extra Chapstick (of course) along with bandaids, tissues, ibuprofen, cough drops and extra hair things in there. I guess you could call it a "just in case" pouch...


And finally, in my bag I keep this little card-keeper. I have this one photo of my children in there along with some store cards, health insurance cards and the like...


So there you have it! And now all my items are back in my bag, just the way I had them before. It's always so nice to know just where everything is and to have it neat and tidy.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing how I organize my bag.
How do you organize yours? Feel free to share a link to your blog post about how you organize your purse! I'd love to see it!

  1. I bet you get a workout just carrying all that stuff around; I like to keep just the bare essentials in my purse.

    1. LOL It would seem that way, huh? :) To be honest, it isn't very heavy at all. I am the type of person who feels more secure knowing I have anything I may need while out! :)

  2. While I am working out on my treadmill or taking an evening stroll by myself, I like to download old radio mysteries on my mp3 player and listen to them.

  5. Hi Katy, i love how you organize your purse. I, too keep things in different bags inside my purse or bag. it does help a lot with having things categorized and being able to locate things more quickly and easily rather than having to rummage through everything. Thanks for sharing!
