"Organizing Strategies for Handbag-Gals: How to Organize Your Bags"
If you're crazy about handbags and purses then you definitely need a handbag organizer that stores all of your bags so that you can have a systematic overview of what you have, don't have and need.
Organizing Your Bags is a Must Because It:
Helps you quickly find the purse you are looking for
Easily match the bag with the appropriate outfit because you'll actually be able to see it!
And not, least keep your closet and room tidy and organized
Note: If you're looking for a purse organizer that let's you organize your things inside your handbag, go here.
With a handbag storage organizer you don't have to hang your bags over clothes hangers, stuffing them at the top of the closet, under the bed or stumbling over them as you move around the floor.
Where to Store Your Handbags?Before you start organizing you'll have to determine where you want to store your purses and how much space you've got for them. You can dedicate a whole shelf in your closet (which is usually not enough space for me personally!), under the bed, the back of the door, on the walls of your room, or if you have a huge collection you can designate a whole new shelf system for the handbags.
Note: Make sure that you research the options and take measurements if needed. For purses you carry daily, dedicate a small spot on the wall and add a couple of hooks or a rack for easy access. Door-racks are especially good for this type of organizing.
Portable Purse Hangers
And don't forget the portable purse hanger that will protect your bag from dirty floors and thieves by hanging it next to you on the table the next time you're at a party. You can also attach it to your desk or a small table in your bedroom.
I personally find it useful for hanging my frequently used bag! I just come home and hang it on the hook - giving an easy-peasy access when I'm in a hurry :-)

How to Organize Your HandbagsThe best way to start organizing your bags and purses is to take all of them out and sort them by type (everyday, purse, travel) and then color.
This is also the best time to
empty all bags (maybe you'll find that other pair of earring you've been looking for these past months?)
and clean each of the bags with a damp cloth (if it's made of real leather
please follow the appropriate instructions with leather conditioner) and shake out the dirt.
A purse organizer is a practical solution to keep everything in plain site.
It makes it easier for your keys, pens, money and other knick knack to slip in and out of their pockets.
Purge What No Longer Serves You
This is a sad step in the handbag organizer process but a necessary one so that your closet won't swim in bags and purses that you never use. Get rid of anything that you've grown out of and are damaged beyond repair.
If you must keep something (like a slouch bag that holds a lot of precious memories) then
store it somewhere else (loft, storage room, etc.) and keep it off-limits from your wardrobe - too much baggage will weigh you and your closet down.
