Where’s My Lipstick? Tips for Taming A Messy Handbag

Published Wednesday, July 25, 2012 7:59 PM

Tired of toting around a disorganized handbag, brimming with clutter? Do you have better luck finding needles in haystacks than a lipstick in your purse? If so, read on for five simple steps for taming handbag chaos.

Lighten Your Load: The ideal weight for a handbag is less than three pounds, says the American Chiropractic Association. If your bulky bag tops out over the recommended weight, time to trim some pounds. Start by purging all contents, tossing clutter, eliminating duplicates and streamlining what remains. Empty your change purse weekly into a kitchen canister, you'll both free up your wallet and save up funds for something fun, perhaps a cute new bag?   

Simple Beauty: If your handbag does double duty as a cosmetic case, say good-bye to unnecessary beauty products, keeping only a small bag of must-have basics. Buy travel sized moisturizers, sun blocks and hairsprays to avoid toting their bulky, full size counterparts. Ditto for your hairbrush; stick to travel-sized or foldable brushes versus a full sized tool. Consider investing in a small, eye-catching cosmetic bag. If you limit yourself to a compact case, you're less likely to tote unneeded items. Plus, a colorful or bright bag is easier to spot during a search.

Get Hip to the Clip: Avoid the frustrating "black-hole syndrome" where your keys and wallet sink into a seemingly bottomless void. Purchase a clip key ring or a carabiner at your local hardware store or online and attach your keys or wallet straps with a clip. Adios black hole!

Put Paper in its Place: Receipts, maps, to-do lists: paper piles up easily in a handbag. Designate a small notebook, with built-in files, or a paper wallet, to corral papers. By storing or stapling all your receipts, and important slips of paper in one spot, retrieval will be faster and easier and you'll ward off the great paper pile-up.

Weed Weekly: Just as your garden needs pruning, so too does your purse. Commit to a weekly weeding routine: take 10 minutes every Sunday night to eliminate clutter and restock what's missing. You'll be good to go for Monday.

Remember, while life can be crazy and unpredictable, an organized hand bag is fully within your control. Organize yours today, for a happier, stress free tomorrow.
