Kids: Can we have some gum?
Me: Sure, it's in my purse.
Kids: Never mind-we'd like to keep our fingers. Who knows what's hiding in there?!
Some serious work needed to be done on my purse before I felt like I could tackle any other major project in my house. This isn't mind blowing but It's a huge deal to me! (-: And apparently to my kids when searching for something in my purse.
First, I emptied it out, divided everything sections and threw away trash and gum wrappers.
(please excuse my ugly notebook-it used to be pretty but I have used it so much for the past 2 years and it is starting to show its age.)
I then seperated all of my papers into categories. I am always forgetting my coupons at home so I'm hoping that if they have a place I will remember to just put them in there. We'll see.
I found these cases at Walmart for $1.97 each. I like that they are clear so I can see what is inside.
And voila! The zippered pouch holds my cell phone, earphones and gum. And the pocket that I'm assuming is for a cell phone is used for my keys. No more hunting!
I cannot tell you how much better this makes me feel.
Let's see, what else can I organize today?!
Please tell me I'm not the only one that gets excited about an organized purse.
