I know, you probably made yourself a promise that you’re going to get organized in the New Year. You want to be the woman who can pull het keys out of her purse without pulling out expired coupons, a teething ring and a half eaten granola bar right? I have the tools to help you do it.
First of all, you need a bag that will hold a lot but still be comfortable to carry. I like the Fashion Games Cognac Tote from Thirty-One. It’s lightweight, but still holds a lot. While it’s not specifically a lap top bag, it’s certainly large enough to fit a small computer or tablet. You can also toss in your makeup bag, keys, phone and a few other personal items and you’re ready to go for the whole day ahead. I like the slouchy appearance of the bag. It’s dressy enough to bring to the office, but also looks great with leggings and sneakers. I love the long strap so I can wear this cross body and still be hands free.
The Triple Slit Pocket fits inside the bag so you can organize your smaller items. How often does a bag that looks good HELP you keep your things in place? I love using these pockets for the items I grab a lot like hand sanitizer, phone and a pen.
For even more organization, use the Double Up Cross Body with this bag. It’s full of little slots and pouches perfect for small items. Here’s how I like to use it. I pack the whole bag for my entire day. Often, that means a few meetings, a yoga class, some errands and client meetings. I tuck the Double Up Cross Body into the bag and when I stop someplace, like the coffee shop, I simply grab it out of the larger bag and head in. I will have everything with me, but I only carry what I need, when I need it.
