Organizing Purses for Frazzled Souls

If you love purses and have lots of them, or if you just simply lose things in it a lot, chances are you could benefit from a way to organize the inside of your purse.

Purse organizers—an insert that you can simply place into the bag you are using then slip it out and into another one later—are one of the greatest organizing ideas ever. We put so much stuff into our purses that it is very easy to lose things like keys, coin purses, wallets, or cell phones in what really might not be that big of a space.

I tend to carry a smaller purses (otherwise I find myself trying to carry everything including, the kitchen sink!) and try to not place that much stuff in them, but I still manage to lose my keys as they slide their way down to the very bottom of whatever bag I am using and hide underneath my eyeglass case and checkbook. Other times, it is my cell phone that finds its way to the depths of my purse, but usually only right before it starts to ring. Whatever it is you are looking for, whether it is a pen, lip gloss or cell phone, if you want it now, it's at the bottom of your bag.

So the solution is a purse organizer. And there are many great options out there to choose from so you can find the one that best fits your needs. Based on my search through a lot of organizers, here are the ones I thought to be the best.

Kwiki Purse Organizers

The Kwiki has lots of rave reviews at Amazon.com.

You'll find it in colors such as red, black, and khaki (which seems to be a popular choice amongst reviewers as it is a nice neutral color, but more than that, its light color makes it easier to see what's inside).

Nicole M. Moore says this about her Amazon purchase of the Kwiki Purse Insert Organizer KHAKI Medium by BagnBasket: "How handy IS this?! I have a purse habit. I admit it! But I cannot stand having to constantly switch my 'stuff' from purse to purse. This organizer is perfect! Just the right size, keeps my things organized and reachable... I would order this again in a heartbeat!"

Pouchee Ultimate Purse Organizers

The Pouchee is another well-rated handbag organizer on Amazon.com that seems to be a good choice for small to medium sized purses, but less so for large ones.

It comes in many colors, measures 7 1/2" x 5", and features metal rings for you to grab to lift it out of your bag. The lined interior has three open pockets, two side slip pockets, and a front wall zip pocket. The center also has a magnetic snap closure. One of the things I really like is the exterior with three large open pockets (good for many things such as reading glasses or a cell phone), one long thin pocket (for a pen), and on the other side, five credit card slots (which makes it sort of wallet-like).

Rebecca Gunderson had this to say about her Pouchee Purse Organizer: "I LOVE my new Pouchee! This product is the perfect answer -- it holds all my 'stuff' easily and fits nicely into most of the bags I carry. I've tried many other organizational products and am thrilled that I finally found the one that works for me! It easily transfers from one bag to another virtually eliminating the hassle! I am one happy camper!!"

The Purseket Organizer

The Purseket is the original purse organizer. It has been featured on Oprah as well as in several trend-spotting magazines. The Purseket is the ultimate solution to the everyday female problem of purse organizing. Its basic design is a strip of pockets that you place inside your bag so it lines the inside and leaves the center of the bag open for bigger items like wallets and make-up cases. To change bags, just roll up the Purseket and unroll it into the new bag. Probably one of the best advantages of the Pursket over other organizers is the way it rolls out to line the sides of your purse, making it adaptable to many different sizes and shapes of purses, which is great if change bags often.

Here's a review by Victoriajv at the amazon.com website about the medium green sea Bubbles Purseket organizer: "I really like this product in fact, after I bought this one, I bought another larger one. Really helps keeping my handbag organized and it makes it very simple to change purses. The only thing I would change is perhaps make some pockets a little bigger and some smaller. Just my opinion, it works well as is! I would also like to see a nicer fabric options."

Although I used to often find this brand at Amazon.com, it now looks like to find the exact style and size you want, you may need purchase it at purseket.com.

Presto Purse Organizer

The Presto purse organizer is different from many of the others in that it is two pieces that are held together by Velcro and can be split apart, so you have two organizers. This is great for when you are switching from a large purse to a medium one. Just separate the pieces, put one in the smaller purse and either leave the other in the large purse or store it in your drawer or closet until you want it again.

Together, the two pieces give you 20 different compartments: Pretty impressive.

The Presto purse organizer fits medium to large bags, has over 20 compartments, and, because it splits in two, you get two organizers in one.

Lady Elegance Purse Organizer

While it was not my favorite The Lady Elegance purse organizer made it to my list as it seems to be good for small purses and have some features that are wallet like, such as it has six credit card slots and a zippered change purse. There are also two pockets for lipsticks, a pocket for a pen and a pocket for a cell phone. The larger center opening can hold an actual wallet or other larger items. Many of the reviewers on amazon.com say the pockets run on the small side though, so be aware of that.

      So many choices! I had no idea there were so many available! Obviously you can guess how my purse looks. Instead of avoiding the 'bottomless pit' purses, one of these will make them very usable. Thanks!

      @Tonya Mickelson: Yes, one of the great things about purse organizers is not only do they organize, but it makes it so much easier to switch stuff from one purse to another. Although some purse organizers that work great in one bag doesn't work so well in another. So that is something else to consider when purchasing one.

      Purse organizers...I LOVE this idea! I would like to be able to switch purses every once in a while, but it's just way too much work. I'm definitely going to look more into these.

      These are a wonderful idea - I recently purchased a purse that was a large void of openness (lol), and to sort things I use various storage items like make-up bags, etc, but these are a much better solution!

      Hi, have you looked at the Chameleon Handbag Insert? "The Purse Forum" in the Louis Vuitton and Hermes area talks about them a lot. They come in different sizes and colors and have zippered pockets. Most organizers I've looked at only have open pockets. There's also a style with a pull out pocket that straps over your shoulder. I have a couple of them and LOVE them because of the zippers along with several other pockets and they're so lightweight.

      @anonymous: I just looked at the Pursfection organizers on Amazon and they were around $25 (and up for larger versions), which seems to be around the average range of many purse organizers. So it sounds like a good price to me for what it is. Especially since it is expandable.

      There are so many different purse organizers out there now and more are coming out all the time (and some great ones are disappearing too, unfortunately). So there are lots of options for different needs and budgets.

      Thanks for commenting.

      check out Pursfection's purse organizers, they look nice :) I'm still unsure if I am going to buy one or not, but it's definitely the one that I like more.

      Unfortunately it's not really cheap... but oh well, it's not like we're going to buy one everyday so, I'd consider it a little investment.

      Just wanted to consider other options before purchasing it, glad I found this website, I didn't know there were so many purse organizers out there.

      Have you heard of Truffle? They are basically clear zippered pouches for organizing. They look great and are exactly what I'm looking for --but are CRAZY expensive! So I'll probably never have one but I love the idea.

      @Frischy: Hmmm. I wonder if it could be dyed if one really didn't like the yellow. Maybe a dark brown or black.

      @Frischy: Thanks for the update on the purse organizer you chose. I read a lot of the Amazon reviews on it when I was updating this page and became more interested in it despite some of the cons...it definitely has a great price.

      I have the SoDial purse organizer and I have to say I love it. This review is 100% unsolicited, and no seller has contacted me about it. It's just a great bargain as far as I am concerned. I have had it about 2 months and it is still like new. It has a lot of different slots and compartments for organizing your stuff, including lots of places to put all the cards we carry with us these days. So I can have different spots for gift cards, discount cards and bank cards. It has two large zipper compartments. I keep makeup in one and coupons in the other. Now, I will say, this is not the most attractive organizer. It is steel grey with safety yellow trim. But, who sees it inside your purse? Only you know if you need a pretty organizer. If so, you might not enjoy this organizer. But if you are more practical, like I am, and you like to be organized and save money too, then you will love this organizer!

      @chickie99: haha I do think I have heard of some women using purse organizers as purses (I think too many things would fall out and get lost though since most of the openings don't have closures). There are also purses that are constructed in a very organized manner with lots of pockets and such. I like the versatility of a purse organizer though...making so almost any purse can become organized.

      An unorganized purse drives me NUTS. I mean really NUTS!!!!!!! I have bought two purse organizers, and I don't care for either one. I've been looking at the Jolie and the Purseket, and I can't decide which one to get. It will probably be the Purseket this time. Oh what decisions girls have to make in life! I think you did a terrific job putting this lens together -- it looks professional and not the least bit sales-pitchy or spammy! Great work!

      @Layla-burker: I assume you are referring to how this lens is in the Fashion & Beauty category? Purse organizers are related to purses, and purses are related to fashion...hence the reason for it being in the Fashion category.

      I have had a purse organizer for a long time, and really value how it literally saves me time, etc. But now I'm seeing the purseket looks like a very nice design, better than what I have now.

      It is nice to have some organization for your purse. I have a small zippered bag that I keep my cell phone and coupons in. It helps keep me on track.
