I have admired various (expensive) purse organizers forever. I always thought it would be handy to just move one bag with all my stuff from one purse to another.... but, of course, I wasn't about to shell out $25+ for it.
A couple of weeks ago at a local discount store I bumped into my perfect (frugal) solution: a mesh cosmetic bag with three outer zippered compartments. (Mine is a Podulars brand, but unfortunately I couldn't find a link for you.) It's perfect-- small and lightweight, but with three different sized compartments to separate my stuff--- medications, lip balm, pens, etc. It fits just right in my smallest purse, with enough room for my wallet and phone to go next to it. And best of all, I only paid about $6.... much better than those expensive organizers!
Finding frugal solutions to life's minor annoyances.... that definitely works for me! Check out more great WFMW tips at We Are That Family.
