a.k.a. My purse.
It is a sucking black hole. It doesn’t matter how many pockets there are inside it or how I tuck my stuff into said pockets. Somehow I always end up digging and digging and searching through my purse to find my keys or my cell phone.
Here’s my purse (or the one I was carrying until about 10 minutes after this pic)
Cute huh? It’s one of my summer purses. And if it weren’t for the whole black hole phenomena I would love it.
Here’s some pics of the inside….
And here’s a look at what was inside….
This morning, on my way home from dropping off the kids, as I dug through the pit to find my cell phone I decided that I was going to come up with something to fix this problem. Now, this may not be the final solution, but this is what I came up with, using what I had available.
I had a couple of these little pouches that I thought I could repurpose. There are actually reusable sandwich/snack pouches that I had ordered from a fundraiser a couple of years ago and I still hadn’t used them. So now they are purse organizers! At least for now.
This one is holding my wallets. I don’t carry a check book with me so one little wallet for loyalty cards and the other for my cash and driver’s license fit perfectly in here.
Then in this one…
I put my lip gloss, nail file, lotion, advil, etc.
Then this little pouch is going to be the holder of my cell phone
which I couldn’t take a pic of because, well, I was using my cell to take these pics.
Here’s the “new” purse with the new organization method employed…
So that’s it! At least until I find a better method to keep myself organized—-or until I start to feel like it has become another pit!
