{31 days of easy organising solutions} – what’s inside your handbag?

Some of you are handbag minimalists.

You hardly carry anything around with you.

That is not me. At all.

Recently at a work conference they sent out a note to say “no handbags”. I had to ignore that particular rule because, as I told my team, I’ve been carrying around a handbag for about 21 years and I would just feel totally lost without my things. So I went very light… for me… but I still had a handbag 🙂


Today it’s time to clean out and organise your handbag.

And if you don’t carry a handbag, use the time to sort out your wallet.

  1. Remove everything.
  2. Toss old receipts, etc. and put away things that don’t belong (nail polish, etc)
  3. Choose what you want to have in your handbag.
  4. Arrange everything in a pleasing fashion – put in the big items first and then the smaller ones. Mesh bags work well to keep your things organised as do Baggu bags (I’m not an affiliate but I should be because I LOVE their stuff – they never break, stain and my sets are perfect after YEARS of use).
  5. Put a reminder in your phone to do maintenance once a week. I also use any waiting time to tidy my handbag, and of course, any time I change handbags is always a good opportunity 🙂

When was the last time you tidied your handbag or wallet?

My book, Live Organised, will help you set up the systems you need to make your life flow smoothly. Available on Kindle and as a physical book.

PS happy birthday to my friend, Roz, today. I do believe she was the first person to order a Kindle version of my book when it released on Amazon. I just love that! Sadly, Roz is not as mad about handbags as I am 🙂

      Sally, unfortunately I don’t know of any suppliers. On the baggu bags you absolutely can’t go wrong! They come in small sizes too. I have 6 smaller ones – and use one of those for a make-up bag at the moment

  2. I alwasys had high hope for this, In Israelthe organic food is rising above just now and supermarkets are getting opened exactly for this reason.
    I really hope some day we will all use organic food while it will not be as expensive as it is right now.
    Always yours, Sammie Rhodes.
