In Pursuit of an Organized Life

. . . putting life in order

New Purse!!


I found a new purse!   I am so excited.   I found it at a used clothing store after unsuccessfully trying to find pants that fit.

Reasons I love it!

  • Durable
  • Long handle
  • Zipper closure
  • Big pockets
  • Fits big new blue wallet and epi pens (for allergies)
  • Only $25
  • Big enough to fit what I need, but doesn’t look like a beach bag
  • Feels grown up
  • Neutral color


I don’t care if it’s designer or a knock off.   I don’t care how much it was originally worth.  I don’t care that it was used.   Hopefully I can keep it from being a catch-all and cluttered.  I’m trying to keep things I don’t want to put away right away or random receipts in the outer pocket so that it doesn’t clutter the inside.  I’ve found a home for cell phone, keys, gym card, and other key items.  Any tips for keeping purses neat?  Or finding the balance between having what you need and keeping random stuff that will never get used?

Have a good day!
