Purse: Declutter & Simplify

I think I've reached a part in my life where I'm ready to simplify.*I hope my husband isn't reading this*... Simplify is such a scary word because if you knew how many things I own right now you would know that it's REALLY needed.


But for me, not to overwhelm myself... I have to start small. Soooo why not start with my purse. 
I used to be the queen of large purses... It all dates back to college and every girl had one of those large TNA bags. It was perfect for me! I could fit my laptop, lunch and whatever essentials I needed for a full day of class. 


See!!

Don't get me wrong- having a large purse had perks. I love the fact that I would be able to carry a literal store everywhere I went. But man my shoulders were in pain!

I was still playing around with a big bag recently but what I was finding that was my bag was so empty. And surprisingly, I couldn't find anything in there.


Here is my current bag from Kate Spade. This bag is ideal for me because of the compartments. There's a middle compartment that has a zipper to side compartments that just have a clasp holding it together. Super simple and fashionable.

What do I carry in a small bag?
For me:
  • I have a large wallet.
  • Make up bag with my beauty essentials for today. 
  • In the inside compartment I have my feminine products.
  • At the bottom you can find a few hair ties, iphone cord, cream, tea bag and mints.

    Maybe down the line with kids, I might go back to the bigger bag.
    Right now, the smaller bags are less stress on my shoulder and less clutter in my life.

    So let me know are you a big bag or a small bag girl?

    3. I'm a big bag girl. I have a one year old and I like to carry a big purse instead of a diaper bag. This is much easier than carrying 2 bags and way more fashionable.
