For comparison, I decided to weigh my purse before and after the intense organization. I am horrified to announce that this sucker weighed 17 pounds starting out. 17! No wonder my back hurts after a day of shopping. Good grief.
First things first, dump everything out. This step might have you running away in terror, but don't. We've got this! Go from this...
One of your categories should be trash. This pile is for the candy wrappers, old grocery lists, expired coupons, etc.
I also gathered all of the loose change hanging out in the bottom of my purse to transfer it to my wallet. Easy peasy.
Another category for me was pens. Why did I feel the need to have 10+ pens in my purse? Who knows. I kept 2, and the rest went into my desk.
I also had 3 cereal bars and 2 water bottles. I condensed to 1 water bottle and 1 cereal bar.
There will also be items in there that you were "storing until you got home" or something to that effect. You're home now, so go put them in their proper place.
Lastly, I kept 2 lip glosses, a hand sanitizer, and tossed the rest of the cosmetics back in the make-up bag.
Thanks to my organization session, my purse is lighter, cleaner, and carries only the essentials. I weighed my newly organized purse, and I am pleased to announce that it is now only 6 pounds. Phew! That's more like it.
