Makeup Bag

My purse is full of junk

Necessary junk. 

Junk for cleaning, junk for moisturizing, junk for beautifying, junk for medicating.

I learned from my mom, though, how to organize all of those necessities. Zippered pouches (one of the great truths passed from mother to daughter: purse organization). My purse is filled with several pouches, each carrying specific items. I was delighted then, when Cindy from Skip to my Lou shared a tutorial so that I could make my own zippered pouch (so easy to follow - I fear the zipper no more!). 

Now my junk is cute. 

How do you organize your purse clutter?

I've always kept my essentials in a zippered pouch for ease in changing purses. I'm excited to try out the tutorial because mine is ugly and from WalMart.

Oooh! This is a great idea and a great tutorial! Thanks!

I wish I could say i was that organized. I have a lot of cute zipper puches but most of the stuff just ends up in the bottom of my purse!

Right now, I don't. But, funnily enough, zippered pouches are sitting at the top of my list to make just for that very purpose! :p

I took everything that pertains to children out of my purse. I keep a small spare bag in the car with diapers and wipes.

business cards

I found my shoulder hurts less now.

Love this bag...and hope I win your current give away! I don't think my sewing skills are very good yet but I might have to try the tute and see if I can master the zipper myself.

I also wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your blog! Yours was certainly one of the ones that inspired me to start my own. So, I nominated you tonight for The Lemonade Award. If you enjoy participating in those, you can pick it up on my blog. :)

I have something very similar to this for this very reason. Yours is ADORABLE!

Mine is a Mary Kay bag with extra pockets inside the little zippered pouch because I have THAT MUCH STUFF. I'm a "just in case!" kind of person. *sigh* But my initials are MK so it looks like I'm really fancy with my monogrammed purse-declutterer (and now I'm just going to make up words!)

I do the same thing! I just found your blog yesterday and am now obsessed! Such cute ideas and easy...wow! I work 45 hours a week, but think I can do most of these projects in my minimal spare time...thanks!
