Since I've been on a bit of an organising frenzy lately, I thought I'd show you a few of the ideas that I have found that are working well for me at the moment. I say 'at the moment' because I do switch about if I find a technique that I thought would be perfect simply isn't working.
OK, let's start with the contents as a whole:
Here we have the bag, a Shopping Organiser (containing all my shop cards plus other interesting info, I'll tell you about that in my next post), my pencil case, umbrella, 'gubbins' bag (details to follow), glasses case, coin purse, charity craft magazine, notebook (closed with a hair band) and my notes & cards wallet.
In detail, we have my pencil case, which is a make up bag that is in clear plastic so I can see which pen I want (I have moods which dictate which particular pen I want to write with at any given moment. Hopefully I'm not alone in this..?)
My glasses case:
My coin purse:
This charity magazine was in my bag because I just happened to have bought it from 'The Stroke Association' when I attended one of their open days recently:
It has some interesting items to make and includes the instructions. A useful item to peruse in a coffee shop, preferably with a cake...
And then there's my notes & cards wallet (the blue & green item on the bottom row). I keep all my notes(£) in there, along with my bank and library cards. Store cards are kept in the Shopping Organiser, which as I said will be a whole new post.
Finally, the gubbins case and its contents and they are:
Not much make up but then I don't wear it very often. If I do, I put it on before I go out.
There are pockets in the front of the bag where I keep my keys:
Finally (phew! very long post), I have my phone and emergency chargers:
Thanks for stopping by today. See you soon for some more organising tips,
