Ultimate Hacks To Being A Handbag Organizing Junkie!

Ever happened to find yourself sinking into the depths of your handbag looking for your stuff? It sure happens every other day that your bag seems more like a black hole – what goes in barely comes out. Worry no more!


Here are the ultimate hacks to making you the super-cool organizing junkie, never having to worry about losing things inside that divine carrier of yours!

Compartmentalize – The fundamental step to keeping your handbag organized is to separate your belongings by category & packing them up in compartments – different pockets or little pouches for different things. For instance throw in your change & loose coins in one little pouch, your credit/debit & shopping cards etc. in mint tins (if the bag doesn’t have a separate compartment for it), your make-up essentials in another pouch, your paper goods (bills, receipts, sticky-notes, coupons etc.) & stationery in little bag envelopes probably putting up category tabs on it or maybe opt for little compartmentalized wallets to ease your task!


Get Tech Savvy! – Go green & hassle-free by making the best use of technology! Lessen your bag’s weight by resorting to e-books & documents in your phone & Kindle for your reading needs to avoid stocking up your bag. Also, try to make optimum use of organisers pre-installed in your cell-phone to keep out those crazy bulky planners & notebooks!


Take Out The Junk – Make sure you run a hand through your handbag at the end of every day to take out the tit-bit junkies that got stashed in the bag through the day. Waste paper bits, wrappers, loose rubber bands, used tissues, pamphlets etc. are all to be thrown out to save your bag from the untidy waste clutter& keep in place the stuff that is required.

Grab The Travel Kits – Even with all your basic utility items packed nice & safe into pouches & compartments, you’ve got to grab the tiny packages for travel use – handy face washes, key chain sanitizers, wet wipe pouches, multi-utility key chain hooks among other things. Also keep up a little medical kit handy to avoid scattering away your medicines, keeping them all in one place.

Wrap Up The Accessories – Wrap up & put in all your accessories like earphones & chargers into reusable kits like sunglass cases or pouches to keep them untangled & ready for use!

Easy Access – Keep the frequently used item into easy reach areas – keys, phones, wallets etc. all to be easily accessible & in open compartments to keep away other stuff & reach out to them immediately when needed.

Maintenance – As you organized your stuff, it is also important to maintain it that way. Make a habit of placing things in their respective places after use, minimizing the waste material & putting up stuff in easy access to increase efficiency & maintain the organization. Also, look out for any holes, ripped seams etc. to avoid losing your stuff in the inner linings of your bag.


Your handbag is one thing that carries all your basic necessities, which should be well organized at all times. When you do clean it up, try & regularize cleaning & clearing up the trash, while you take care of not over stuffing the bag with unnecessary things & keeping it simple.

Take up a handy style & size that suits your body type & necessities while you buying a handbag, keep it away from wear & tear as much as possible, keeping in mind while buying a handbag and material you choose.

So gear up, empty your purse, organized it & save yourself from all the hassle of scrambling through your bag for the times to come!
