As a mom my purse is many things. It’s a bag for all of my important things like my money and my smartphone. It’s a place for everything my kids hand me that they don’t want to carry like their snack, random toys and the change they find on the ground. It’s a catch all for every paper I get at scouts, sports practice, swim lessons and just about every other activity my kids are in and all the business cards and receipts I get. Then there are the random things I end up putting in there like gum wrappers and used gift cards.

This is what my purse looked like this morning. I had switched to a new purse and not yet moved over my organizational pouches and had done some traveling and had a few busy weeks where I didn’t have time to organize it.

Yikes! Everything is all over and it’s impossible to find anything. The worst is when I go looking for a piece of gum and find my pack has opened up and all my gum is on the bottom of my purse getting squished. I am so excited to have discovered the new Extra® 35-stick pack of gum because it’s in durable, recycled packaging with a flip-top lid. Whoever thought of this was a genius! Not only is the pack perfect for my purse but it’s perfect for sharing because it has more sticks of gum than the other packs. I bought two of them at Walgreens, Extra® Gum Spearmint for myself and Extra® Gum Polar Ice® for Sinisa.

I decided to get back to my old way of organization that I had set up in my old purse where everything had a home and when I’d clean it out every Sunday evening. It was easy to find things and easy to keep organized because everything had a place.

I use makeup bags to organize most of the items by category. I have one for receipts/papers, one for smartphone accessories and one for personal care items. I use the built in pockets of my purse to hold my keys, my business card pouch, my Extra® Gum and my phone when it’s not in my hands. I also use a Life Planner which contains my calendar, to-do lists, and important notes. I put important papers in my Life Planner as well so they don’t get lost.

Look how much more organized everything is!
