Hi, it’s Kerri here. I am the MD of K TWO Products and this year, we’ve decided to make a few changes to our blog, and one of them is that I’m going to be writing it! Blogging isn’t something I’m use to doing but I hope that what you read is interesting and helpful.
I always wish I was more organised and look on with envy at friends who’s kitchen drawers and piles of paperwork are all neatly sorted out! Juggling work, home and kids means I might get 1 hour a day to myself often in the evening when the kids are in bed and I am often tempted away from organising by a glass of wine in front of the TV! However when I do get a chance to get things around the house organised I feel 100 times better and I always like a simple, quick solution to getting things easy to access and neat and tidy!
When it comes to March, its time for spring cleaning, and even a little goes a long way. If you have to prioritise then I’d recommend sorting out something you see and use every day as it will give you a real benefit. So today I’m going to chat about organising handbags –
That means emptying out your handbags, getting rid of those sweet papers, old bus tickets and old raisins which hide away in the nooks and crannies of your bag. When I cleaned out my handbag last night, I found 2 cinema stubs, 7 bus old bus tickets and 2 pen lids (the pens were nowhere to be found – how does that always happen??).
My nice tidy handbag!
Now, once your handbags are tidy, it’s time to organise them. No more dumping in them in the bottom of your wardrobe or cramming them into a drawer; I found this ingenious way of hanging them up – it saves room and displays them all so you don’t forget about that old favourite.
What you need:
- A length of sturdy material (I used an old belt)
- 2 types of old ribbon (some thin and one thick)
- Needle and thread
1. Cut your thin ribbon into lengths approximately 30 cm long
2. Carefully sew the middle of the ribbon onto your material/belt at regular intervals (the amount of ties you want will depend on how many bags you have!)
3. Sew the large piece of ribbon (which should be about 40cm) to the top of your material/belt
4. And that’s it! Hand your handbag tidy onto a hanger or on a hook, tie up your handbags and keep the bottom of your wardrobe tidy! Give yourself a big pat on the back because they cost about £30 to buy.
