I’m a sucker for just about anything that claims it will make my life easier. Classses at the gym? I can stay in shape if I simply show up? Sign me up! Lash extensions that will mean I can run around with no make up and not look entirely crazy? Sure, why not?
And let’s be clear if it has the word organize anywhere in the title, I’m sold. There’s something about the idea of being organized that makes me weak in the knees. You too? Read on!
So Fall of 2018, my husband and I took an epic 6 week trip to Europe to celebrate my Big Birthday. I treated myself to a new totebag … by the end of the trip the tote still looked great, but I was over it’s cavernous depths. I couldn’t find half the stuff I was carrying in it.
I could never find anything I needed when I needed it! Clearly my phone overheard my complaints and ads for these purse organizers started popping up. Purse what? It was like Valhalla! The answer to my purse detritus woes. But, before I plunked my hard earned cash down for one, I went down the rabbit hole called internet research. I got to the point of information overload and then the holidays hit.
You know the drill, life got busy and then it was time to visit our families. I traveled with the same beautiful tote sans purse organizer. Gone for three weeks, 2 different states and yes of course all kinds of stuff got lost at the bottom of my carryall.
So, by the time February rolled around I’d chosen my brand of purse organizer and my color, but got distracted and forgot to click order. Then I went on girls trip and my bestie had a big beautiful new tote and guess what ya’ll a purse organizer! Great minds think alike, the difference being she’d bought hers! This is gonna sound crazy, really it is, but’s it’s true so I’m just gonna say it and trust that this is a safe space of like minded individuals … I was jealous.
I could barely say hello. I whipped out my laptop, found the tab with the purse organizer I had in my cart and hit enter. Yup, mine arrived the day after I got home. Did it change my life? Well, I wouldn’t go that far … but it’s bright pink which means even if I just throw stuff in there I can see the stuff. I do love all of the little sections (this is where my research came in handy) and let’s be honest, it’s only as organized as I take the time to make it. But, it does make me happy even if sometimes I overfill it and then my bag feels even heavier.
The best part though? It’s got handles so I can move it from tote to tote. See I told you, I’m all about anything that makes my life easier!
Stylishly yours, Kalyn
