Hello, bag lovers!

If you carry a bag on an everyday basis, you will quickly notice that your bag can often double as a black hole into a foreign vortex where all your necessities will be lost!

We do not want that.

Ladies and fabulous others,

If your bag looks like this….

I’m here to help you with this hot mess.

This is what we want:

So, first we need to CONFORM and CONJOIN.

Conform to the fact that A) Your bag is a mess – and, B) No, you don’t have a system.

Let’s begin.

Conjoin items by group and place them into smaller pochettes or things of the liking.

Put your makeup into a makeup bag, put your business cards into a business card holder… and so fourth.

You ideally want to make no more then four groups so that each section is clearly visible.

Another idea, if you would like something a bit sturdier – is to use an eyewear case for items, just as illustrated here:

Do not overstuff your sections as that will turn out to be counter productive.

No one wants to be the girl who can’t find her debit card and takes ten minutes to pay at Starbucks!

If you need something really easy, I suggest buying a clear pouch so that all of your items are clearly visible and that you know what you are fishing for:

I highly recommend shopping for pochettes at Truffle! Click here to visit their website.

Turns out the trinkets that envelope the checkout line at Forever 21 have a use after all!

After this, all you have to do is MAINTAIN!

Let’s not treat this as that unrealistic diet we tried for twenty two hours. Maintain Maintain Maintain.

Here’s to a clean bag and a speedy find!
