Colour coded pencil cases keep handbag organised

Pencil Cases(.right)

I saved the price of an expensive handbag organiser by using three $2 pencil cases instead. I have two handbags that I swap depending on whether I am working or with the kids, and always found it a pain to transfer essential items like my wallet and make-up and to quickly find what I need in a big bag. Now my colour coded pencil cases make it easy! The green one holds my full make-up, for the days I have to dash off and do make-up on the train. This stays at home when I'm not in a hurry. The black one holds pens, business cards, usb sticks etc. and the blue one holds lip gloss, bandaids, panadol and postit notes. My items are now easy to swap between bags and I don't have to dig around for smaller items like pens. All for $6 and a hunt through the bargain bin at Officeworks!
