DAY # 2 – TIP # 2
Purge Your Pocketbook Periodically
Is your pocket book so full of stuff that it’s hard to locate an item quickly? When searching through your purse, do you frequently ask yourself; Where are my keys? I thought I’d put my to-do list in here. Where’s my credit card?
If so, then it’s time to purge the stuff inside your purse! Dump everything out, and recycle expired coupons, old receipts, scraps of paper. Put an envelope in your bag for current coupons and receipts. Throw out used tissues. Then, add a small zippered pouch or zip-top bag to hold personal items like lip balm, lipstick, hand lotion, a comb, clean tissues, and hand sanitizer. But, not duplicates of these things, as they will crowd your purse. (replace any of these items that are out-dated) Keep your keys in one safe location, and your credit cards and money in another.
Or, get yourself a pocketbook that has different sections that zip up. I love my pocket book because it has separate zipped sections for my keys, my ID cards, my cash and change, a slot for my iPhone, and a snapped section for my travel sized hand lotion and tissues, chewing gum, Band-aids, and small comb. And remember, after you use something from your purse, put it back in the section it belongs.
Purging your pocketbook periodically and keeping it organized, eases up on frustration and saves you time.
