Isn’t the idea of organization so great? Putting it into practice can be a little tricky though. I’m always on the hunt for life changing organizational systems that work seamlessly into my existing routines. I love having an organized purse. I just wish the organization would last longer than a couple days! I think part of the reason why we all have a hard time keeping our bags clean is just because we are so very kind to the environment and refuse to litter, right?? Sometimes the purse just has to be a trash receptacle.
These metal slide top tins have proven to be majorly handy over the last few months. Every time I’m near a Black Ink store in Boston or Cambridge I grab a little handful of them. There are probably about a zillion uses for them and they are less than $2 each (I think the tiny ones are like $.97). I really like these for my purses because they are sturdy, compact, and give the look and feel of a customized kit. I have some filled with tiny crafting pieces, fake eyelashes that I think are so cool, but I never use, and pretty much anything that I want to throw in my purse. Acquiring a label maker made these little guys so much cuter too. For my purse, I keep one tin for mints and gum, one for hair ties and bobby pins, and one for makeup touchup supplies. It’s so nice to not have all these things rolling around in the bottom of my bag! It also makes switching bags a piece of cake. If I’m going out for a quick meal, I can just grab the gum tin or if I’m going to be out all day I can make sure I have it all. So convenient! What are some of your favorite organization tips?
Just a few items that might help to freshen up if needed. And it all fit so nicely in one tin!
I did not intend to be all Kate Spade or primary color themed here – it just happens to be what I was using at the time!
Such a perfect fit!
