I am definitely not an original in suggesting this, but I thought I’d pass on the tip just in case any of you were like me.
I usually have a medium-sized purse and organizing everything in there is a mess because it doesn’t have more than one zippered pocket.
..enter, the little makeup bags. (All from Etsy. Just search for “Makeup Bag”)
- Pad of tissues (am considering a handkerchief instead)
- White pad of paper/Post-Its
Then I carry for electronics:
- Cellphone (which I always put in a little holder by the side)
- Palm T|X (PDA system)
- Digital Camera
- Apple Shuffle MP3 Player
I am hoping the Palm Pre will get rid of everything above, except for the Shuffle which I find quite handy to be separate from a phone.
And money of course. I sometimes like using a slim cigarette holder case for cards and some money instead of a full bulky wallet.
Anyway, on to organization!
I have one bag for each of following under these categories:
- Hard Candy
- Starbucks cup holder*
*I have those corrugated cardboard cup holders because I had briefly entertained the thought of buying an actual cute, fun cup cosy from Etsy.
Then I realized I could just save the cup “cosy” from Starbucks in my purse instead.
Not as cute, but it saves me around $10 (shipping included), and I’m re-using! *turns greener around the edges*
Green Pockets – Gray & Yellow Cup Cosy – $8.50
- Lip Balm
- Lip Gloss
- Slim mirror
- Compact Translucent Powder for shine (pending purchase)
“What the fuzz happened?“
- Extra contact lenses
- Wet wipes
And I could have more little bags, but that’s all I need for now.
