30 Day Neat & Tidy Challenge: Day 5 - Purse and Wallet
It's day five of the 30 Day Neat & Tidy Challenge! Today's task is so easy, you can even do it on your lunch break at work! We are tackling our purses/wallets today! Don't worry though. This won't be as bad as it sounds, I promise!
Here is the breakdown.
-Remove everything from your purse. Seriously, just dump it on the table, bed or floor.
-Throw all that trash away. This is the part where you have your purse turned upside down over the trash trying to get those crumbs out. How do they end up there?
-Go through all paper items such as recipes, mail, coupons and decide what is safe to throw, what needs to be shredded and what needs to be kept.
-Gather all the change and put it in your coin purse or wallet. You can also take it out and place in your piggy bank.
-Put all your makeup together.
-Invest in a small accordion file that can fit in your purse. Use it for receipts, bill money, coupons, appointment or business cards and other paper items you can think of. This will free up your wallet!
-Keys - Click here to find out how to never lose your keys in your purse again! This changed my life!
-Keep your sunglasses in a case or in the sunglasses department of your purse for easy finding and do the same with your phone.
-Take all other items out that do not belong in your purse and put them in their proper place.
-Lastly, put together a Just in Case Kit. This kit will hold all those items that you have just in case you need them. Gum, bobby pins, hairband, Chapstick, hand cream, bandaids, nail file and so on. Pic a good sized bag and place whatever fits.
-Wallet - Make sure you have taken all receipts, appointment cards and coupons out. The only items in your wallet should be money, cards, drivers license/ID and checkbook if you have one. Never keep Birth and SS cards in your wallet.
Here is a fun question, what is the weirdest or grossest thing you have found in your purse?
Mine has to be the rotten banana I found when I was switching back to one of my old purses. I put a banana in my purse as a snack for my daughter but I guess I got a new purse and only switched the essentials out, totally forgetting the banana of course. When I went to switch my items back days later, the banana had turned to mush ruining everything in it! This is why we should clean our purse often, right? Lesson learned.
Follow along and upload your pictures for this challenge to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. (No rotten banana pics please.) You can tag me or use #TeamNeatAndTidy to share your progress and see what other's are up to in this challenge!
