When Borne Naked sent me an email explaining their handbag liners and asking me if I’d like to participate in their handbag makeover challenge, I couldn’t say ‘yes!’ fast enough.
My handbag is perhaps the contraption that I find the most infuriating – just this morning I wanted to dump the entire contents out on the floor of a cafe’ just to find my phone so I could stop its incessant ringing.
Note: It’s messy and full of far too many useless objects:
Enough was enough… and I dumped the contents of my bag all in the name of better-organization.
Here’s a snapshot of all the junk I am constantly carrying around with me. There’s the usual suspects – wallet, phone, keys, lip balm, iPod, plus a notebook, planner, multiple pens, Ruby mirror and Eclipse mints, A lot of it doesn’t even need to be there – such as nail polishes, a stapler (?), tickets and receipts.
Enter: My new Borne Naked liner. I was at first too happy to throw out the crap, and only keep what I actually needed with me. I opted for keeping my planner and wallet loose but you can see everything else nicely tucked away.
Insert into handbag – and ready to go.
The added benefit is that it makes switching between bags so much easier, something that I really find to be quite a pain, especially when I forget to take something with me in a rush (thank you Borne Naked!).
So now it’s your turn to share – how messy is your handbag?
