Organize your Big Bag with our Pouch System
Do you feel like when you buy a big bag or backpack you just end up carrying around everything but the kitchen sink? Don't let your big bag turn into a black hole ! You can carry everything you need and still find it all. Just follow my easy steps to organizing that big bag
I know this seems like somewhat of a Russian nesting doll experience , but hang in here with me for a moment. When you have a smaller bag inside your big bag you can keep all your most essential items in there. These are the items that you need when you run in for a quick errand. Don't take your big bag into every stop!
This smaller purse will hold your wallet, keys, lipstick, a mask, and phone. Here are the ones that I cycle through:
This is our bestselling small purse. It lays flat but holds a lot. You can swap straps, use it as a clutch or add a wristlet strap.
The sling clutch is a smaller option that has only a wristlet strap, but still will hold a minimalist wallet, phone, keys and a few small essentials.
This is our newest bag and the great thing about it is its versatility! You can wear it as a purse, chest bag, fanny pack or even as a clutch when you remove the strap.
2. Store wet/messy items in a vinyl bag
This is a great way to keep your purse clean and free of spills. With a leather purse you really want to avoid spilling any liquids in it, so a vinyl bag will help save your purse. You will also know exactly where to look when going for your lipstick, hand sanitizer or sunscreens. Check out a few of our favorites below.
3. Store your snacks in one bag
If you have kids, I know you have some graham cracker crumbs, smashed up granola bars, and forgotten fruit snacks at the bottom of that big bag! If you don't have kids and you still carry snacks around you are a girl after my own heart (food with me always) and you need a place to keep it and not let it mash up in the black hole.
I think that the best snack bags are boxy bottom bags! They have plenty of room for everything and the shape and form keeps your goodies from getting mashed. We make plenty with vinyl outer fabric that will help protect your bag as well!
4. Tiny things go in tiny bags
Go check right now and see what is at the bottom of your bag. I'll give you a minute.... What did you find? Earrings, a necklace, spare change, batteries, vitamins or Advil? These little things need a little home, and putting them in a big pouch just means they end up tangled and lost again. Insert our half moon pouches! They are the cutest little accessory with a punch of personality that makes a perfect one for your tiny tchotchkes. You can even hook a few of them together, I suggest one for coins, one for jewelry, and one for headphones !
5. Put soft items in a soft pouch:
They key to organizing your bag comes down to two things: smaller bags inside the big bag, and knowing what is IN those small bags! Clear bags are easy, but you don't need them for everything. Soft bags made from cotton and canvas are more lightweight, smaller and perfect for all your soft items! Extra masks, tissues, panties, pads, etc. If you put the soft items in soft bags you will ALWAYS remember which pouch they are in!
