The Right Accessories are Key to Being Organized
The cavernous inside of a tote can be perceived as a threat or as an opportunity. Is it a wide, open, deep space that sucks in important objects and requires endless search and rescue for a pen or a comb? Or is it the opportunity for the land of compartmentalization that thrives with a place for everything?
Each Sea Bag tote has a slip pocket that can be command central for your smartphone or keys. However, the rest of the space is available for you to develop as needed. I have found that the right accessories really do help organize the space that naturally invites entropy.
The cosmetic pouch is appropriate, well, for cosmetics but also for keeping a checkbook, pens, small calculator, business cards and note paper in one place. As parent of small children, I keep a package of wet wipes with straws and utensils in another cosmetic pouch for “just in case” instances.
The anchor stamped change purse is a perfect size for credit cards. Or, of course, this accessory keeps coins from bulking up wallets or rattling around at the bottom of the bag.
The vintage change purse is easy to spot because it is made from brightly colored Dacron sailcloth. It is a little larger than the anchor change purse so a cellphone or iPod with earbuds fit nicely.
Don’t forget the wristlet. Latch it to the handle for greater access. Often times when I want to downsize or need to travel light, I gather essentials in the wristlet and depart from the mothership tote for quick trips to the grocery store.
What else do you carry in your purse or tote?
