Messy Purse Alert! It's That Time Again...

Hey everyone,

I've been thinking for the past week (or two...Okay fine, THREE to be perfectly, painfully honest) that my purse is looking a wee bit cluttered. As in, I can't find anything I need in there anymore, except random sticks of gum of dubious age and flavour.

See, the situation is indeed dire! So, grab your favorite handbag, purse, backpack, messenger bag, tote or briefcase (you classy slob!) - whatever it is that you use to tote your stuff around with you. (See guys, this DOES include you! thought you got away from this one easy, didn't you?) Dump out the contents. If your bag looks anything like mine, it'll be embarrassing how much random junk actually falls out!

Chuck out all those old pieces of paper, clippings, old crumpled tissues (I can hear you saying 'Ewwww' from here) and whatever else is in there. If you have an extra few minutes, take time to declutter your wallet while you're at it. Put back in the stuff you really need and use, and otherwise put the rest of the stuff away.

Voila! A much neater purse/bag/briefcase, ready to use in day-to-day life. Good job, slob. I always knew you had it in you.

I just did that myself.
I switched purses to make everything easier to find.(right)
Once upon a time,I used a different purse every time I went out.Sheesh!
I have given away almost all of them.
Life is much simpler now.

Good job! Doesn't it feel great to not have stuff falling out when you reach in for your wallet at a checkout? (LOL That is so embarrassing...)

I'm the same, Sharon. I don't need many purses or handbags at all. I have a couple that I switch between and that's about it.
