I like big totes and I cannot lie. The problem with carrying a giant handbag — and thinking you need to haul everything but the kitchen sink on your shoulder every day — is it’s nearly impossibly to keep all of your stuff from falling into a sad, messy pile at the bottom of your bag. This is especially troublesome when you’re standing at the register in the grocery store with a line behind you, arm-length into your purse and sweating as you try to locate your credit card that’s buried somewhere in the detritus. (Yes, I have a wallet. No, I don’t always use it properly.)
While scrolling through Pinterest recently, I spotted this long felt handbag organizer and thought, ‘eureka!‘ I found it on Amazon for less than $30, and it’s on Prime, so you could have it in time for the holiday as an amazing gift for yourself or your favorite handbag clutter bug. I’m partial to the beige, but it’s available in 7 other colors. There’s also a short version for smaller bags.
I like how the lady in the photo carries a gourmet chocolate bar in hers; I aspire to be this fancy — and organized! — in 2018.
