Works For Me Wednesday- Picture Album Purse Organization


It's Works For Me Wednesday time. Now hosted by We Are That Family. Her first time to host it. Yea!!!

I want to share this little bit of organization that works for me. It is what I call "picture album purse organization." (Like that name?) However, it's not my idea. I saw this in Weight Watchers' magazine a while back and thought it would be great for me. Basically, you just use a mini size photo album(you can get them at Dollar Tree) and designate certain pockets in them for things like receipts, business cards, coupons, lists, etc. All the things that seem to get tossed in your purse and create clutter. Well, that's what happens to my purse anyway, so this is great for me. I'm using a cute little embellished photo album that one of the young women from church gave me for Christmas. She monogrammed it just for me. How cute!





I have quite a few pockets set aside for receipts. You could also put tabs on the pages, but I thought they would get torn off going in and out of my purse.




I have another section for coupons.



A section for business cards and one for lists. I try to sort through it at the end of the week, but you know, that doesn't always happen.:) Cater it to your own needs. It helps me control the clutter because I can't fit EVERYTHING in my wallet.

What a great idea! I always get clutter in my purse from receipts, coupons, lists, and from my checks that most businesses nowadays run through and give right back to you. I hate that! Thanks for sharing.

LOVE this idea! I think I'm going to put this down on my list for crafts at MOPS...simple, cheap and a great organizational piece!!! Thanks for sharing Missy! Oh, and I still love your photo album recipe book. I've started mine...just haven't finished it yet.

This is a great idea! And I love the fact that it is so affordable!
Now maybe I can get those receipts out of the bottom of my purse--and find that coupon:)

This is a great idea! I'm definitely stealing it for the paper clutter in my own purse!

That's a great idea, love it! I have one that I use to keep my embossing templates organized but it never occured to me to use it in my purse for all the bits of paper that are floating around in it!

Holy smokes! Why didn't I think of this! ;) I love using these photo albums for so many things, but I hadn't thought of this one! It would be great just as a coupon organizer, too. Your friend did a great job making it personal and cute just for you!
