It’s in the bag! by Lauren Halagarda, Certified Professional Organizer®
One of the misconceptions about getting organized is that you have to give up everything you love. While I agree, you probably do have to let go of some of the stuff you have been holding onto, the purpose is to make room for what you love and use.
I find it most challenging for my female clients when organizing their closet…or more specifically purses. Clothing styles come and go but our love affair with accessories lives on. There are totes, satchels, clutches, drawstring, hobo, dog carriers, evening bags, messenger, etc. They come in your choice of patent leather, buckles, zippers, satin, tassles, velour, canvas, studs and choice of straps… The perfect purse allows us to express our individuality, reflects our personality and lifestyle, and one size fits all. Heck, there’s even a museum exhibit entitled “The Purse and The Person: A century of women’s purses” (currently at the Dane G. Hansen Memorial Museum and Plaza in Logan, Kansas). Purses really do tell a story.
You can still express yourself in a more organized fashion by finding products and accessories that are flexible and fun. I was strolling through the mall recently and came across this fabulous purse called the Miche™ Bag (pronounced MEE-chee). It’s a basic bag with interchangeable covers. You get to choose basic brown or black for the base bag. Sounds boring, right? But wait, you get to choose from a cool collection of shells that attach in a matter of seconds. Not only does it use a fraction of the space in your closet- it also saves you time (no need to change purses...only shells). One Miche™ bag lover organizes her shells in a filing system (a woman after my own heart). The Miche™ bag also eliminates that “uh, oh” moment when you realize that you left your money in your other purse. And it means that you can travel and still bring a purse (shell) for every outfit.
