Looking forward to being able to carry a purse instead of a diaper bag all the time is a big deal. Or if you carry both a diaper bag and purse, it’s helpful to have things you can grab to go back and forth between the two.
I use a Spartina 449 wallet. It holds my cash and credit cards and it’s cute enough that I can just grab it and carry it when I need to run into the store and don’t want to carry my whole purse. It would be great to go back and forth between a purse and diaper bag as needed. Keeping it looking clean isn’t hard because the exterior would easily wipe clean if something got on it. It doesn’t hold much change but I keep a change purse in my car for loose change so that’s not a concern for me.
Yup I have two… I like to keep my gift cards and coupons in the second wallet. It’s helpful to have in my purse but I don’t need it at every store so it’s nice to have them organized in their own wallet. Sometimes I leave this wallet in the car if I don’t need it in my purse but can still grab it if we’re at a store that I have a gift card or coupon for.
Thanks to Ipsy I’ve got lots of makeup bags to choose from now. I usually keep my “basics” with me – some kind of lip gloss, mascara and eye liner. Of course if I know I’m going out to dinner with friends or have a meeting after work or something, I’ll throw in a little bit more makeup so I can update my face for the second half of my day.
My reading glasses and sunglasses also both hang out in my purse when I’m not wearing them along with my chapstick and a pen. Only having a couple things floating around helps me see quickly what doesn’t belong in there permanently so I can get rid of it or find a place if it needs to stay.
Believe it or not, that all fits in my purse from Thirty One. I love that I can zip it up and everything can live in there. How do you keep your purse organized?
