Ways to Simplify Your Life

Hey ladies . . . want to reduce a little stress today???

Do you have receipts, coupons or lists everywhere?   Eventually these useless slips of paper seen to take over your bag.  If you have more receipts then US currency in your bag -- it's time to clean out your purse!  If it's difficult to locate anything, especially smaller items like keys, lip balm, cell phone or pens -- it's time to Just Do It!

I know, I know . . . you need everything that is actually in your purse.  Ok, so I'll go with that.  Are you still with me?  If so, dump everything out.  Yes you heard me, dump it!  Throw out old gum wrappers, grocery lists, to-do lists (which you're obviously not going to get to) and any other trash.  Take out anything that belongs to your children & put it away.  All kidding aside, in addition to just general cleaning (which I should add, needs to happen weekly), you should revisit which cards you have in your wallet or purse and think about whether you really need to be carrying them all the time.  Same goes for rewards cards, health insurance cards, social security cards & so on.  There isn't always a need to carry all of these items with you.  A little purse or bag is better.  Most people carry their whole world in the bags.  What if you lost is tomorrow?  Think about that & reevaluate what you carry around with you.

If you don't have a purse organizer insert -- go get one asap.  They are a life saver.  I can sit at a light, put my hand in my bag & without looking, find anything I need.  They are very inexpensive (way less expensive then most people's purses).  QVC sells a black & pink purse organizer for only $24.72 (including shipping).  That's a steal if you ask me. 

What are some ways you organized your purse/bag?
