A couple weeks ago, I met a group of power professional organizers for drinks. These people are no-nonsense business owners who employ staffs and kick clutter’s arse. Additionally, they make me laugh, which makes checking in with them a few times a year a lot of fun.
As we toasted our drinks, I realized that all of the women in the group were carrying the same purse. I had to ask them about it because it was such a bizarre sighting. I mean, maybe in junior high a girl gets the same purse as her best friend, but it’s not something you typically see with a group of adults.
It turns out, none of the women were aware of the other women’s handbags. Each said she purchased her Butler Bag for the same reason — the purse’s inside structure. These organized women had all purchased the most organized purse they could find.
After talking to these organized women about their bags, I decided to buy one. (That is my purse in the above pictures.) I bought the “Classic” style in the color espresso. It’s only 13″ x 5.5″ x 5″, yet it holds all of my things with an unbelievable amount of remaining space in its five sturdy compartments. Check out the website to get a better idea of all of the things you can carry in one of these small purses.
I no longer have to search for anything in my bag. I don’t have to worry about the top coming off a pen and marking up my cell phone. And, since the purse is really cute, no one knows that I’m carrying it for utilitarian reasons.
If you don’t need a new purse, check out these purse organizers that make lots of pockets on the inside of your purse. For $20, they seem like a nice alternative.
