My PURSEonality

 I needed to get a new purse because I was basically living out of two separate ones. A diaper bag and a tote bag. In the diaper bag I had all my necessities and my tote bag had my wallet sunglasses and keys. Since my youngest came out of diapers 6 months ago I figured it was time to combine and downsize...which meant, NEW PURSE! I was on the hunt for awhile trying to find the perfect one and I found a cute little pink one. Since I had to organize my new beauty, I thought I would share with you my PURSEonality ;) and how I organize it. So here we go!!

This is my new beauty, isn't she cute?


I wanted a purse that had tons of compartments. This is a must in my purse searches. I LOVE compartments. This one has three compartments and this is how I divvy them up.



 I am a creature of preparedness so I have to tote around anything I may need at any given time. This is what is in my Medicine Bag.


My second compartment is the main middle section of my purse. This is where I put the things I use everyday.


I even organize my wallet. I have had this wallet forever and it has been my favorite of all time. I actually purchased it a Staples of all places. It houses all the cards you can collect ;)


I carry sunscreen for those unexpected trips outside when you go somewhere you thought was indoors. Diaper cream (Zinc) has many uses, not just for sore bums, and plastic bags for those wet or sticky situations kidlets get us in!
 

The back of my purse has a section for my phone. This is also an important area to look for when shopping. Usually if I would throw my phone into the inside of a purse I can never hear it. On the outside I can. 

Lastly a part that I keep in the car at all times, instead of toting around, is an extra pair of clothes. You never know when you come across a rain puddle or an accident so "it's better to be safe than sorry" ;)


I'll blog in the future about how I organize my van and what I stock in there for a rainy day situation!!

What's your PURSEonality?? Throw it all in or compartmentalize??
Happy purse organizing!!

  5. Hi Shantalle, pretty name. I'm Connie at http://hotflashncraftn.blogspot.com/, your new GFC friend. I would love it if you stop by and be mine, too.
    You don't mess around when you leave the house.... it's best to always (try at least) to be prepared. The strangest thing happen to children.... Thank you for sharing, you are so organized.

    1. Lol, yep always prepared. I was once asked for a safety pin a few years ago (obviously the person thought I would have one (it was my Dad actually:)) and I didn't have one, I was mortified. Have carried one ever since. No one will ever need one though. And clearly as I sit and write this, I need to get out more ;)

  6. Wow now that's some organization! I absolutely refuse to buy a purse without the middle broken up.. hobos, totes, and shoppers just don't work for me.. I also keep a spare set of baby clothes and diapers and wipe in the trunk of the car for those oopsie moments :) Good post!

  7. Wow, you are always prepared, aren't you? What great organization. Now that my daughter is out of diapers I downsized to a small purse again. I stick it all in but don't want to carry something too heavy. Though I'm often grabbing a tote or backpack for her stuff if we are out for the day. Thanks for sharing at Sharing Saturday!! I hope you are having a fabulous week!!

  8. Wow, I can't believe you got all that into that beautiful purse! You are totally organized. I usually just carry a wallet, coin purse and some gum. Maybe a pen too. I try to keep my purse cleaned out otherwise I can't find anything. Thanks so much for linking up to Creative Thursday this week. I can't wait to see what you link up next week. Have a wonderful weekend.

  12. Love it. The inside of your purse looks like mines. I have everything from medical/emergency essentials to snacks. One can never be too prepared when you have kids.
