Purse Clutter Revisited and Cool New Products!

posted by Andrea | 10/25/2011

Over a year ago I showed you everything that was in my purse.

And while I’m still using the exact same purse, the contents have changed a bit… and would you believe that it’s even MORE organized! 

Yup, I just recently came across a new company, Invite L, and they specialize in really classy organizing products and tools {so of course I instantly fell in love with them!} Oh, and you might just want to pay attention because in a few weeks, you’ll have an opportunity to win a bunch of their amazing products 🙂

The Bag-In-Bag:

One of my favorite products is their Bag-in-Bag — or basically a small bag/purse with a bunch of organizing pockets. These bags are big enough to fit all the basic necessities, but small enough that they easily fit inside most bags, purses, and diaper bags. So when it’s time to switch purses, all you need to do is take the Bag-in-Bag out of one purse/bag and put it into the other.

SO simple!  

I’ve been using this adorable {and super functional} green Felt Bag-in-Bag for the last few weeks, and I can’t even tell you how much I’m loving it! 

I’m already thinking how great it will be in a few short weeks when I’ll be toting around a big diaper bag everywhere I go. Now I can just slip my bag-in-bag into the diaper bag and I won’t have to carry a diaper bag and a big purse!

I also have this really fun Dual Bag-in-Bag which has even MORE organizing pockets… and padded compartments for technology items like cameras, iPads, ect.

I could see the Dual Bag-in-Bag being my favorite travel accessory from now on! 



If you’ve been reading this blog for any amount of time, you know that I’m absolutely obsessed with paper planners. I HAVE to write everything down and I really want to be able to see a full week and month at a time so I can accurately plan my schedule and my daily to-dos.

Well recently, my daily planner broke… so I was in the market for a new planner, but it had to be one that could start in October, not January {which was REALLY hard to find!}

Thankfully, Invite L. has a huge selection of planners and agendas that are totally customizable!

I’m currently using their Agenda, which allowed me to start on any day of the year and organize each day, week, month, and year!  I love that there is PLENTY of room to write out the activities for every single day and extra room for notes, or all my to-dos at the bottom.

And not only is the Agenda totally functional, it also fits perfectly inside my Bag-in-Bag AND is the most lovely shade of yellow. I feel happy just looking at it!

Take a closer look at the image on the right — do you see how EMPTY my planner is??? That’s because starting in November, I’m pretty much declaring myself on “maternity leave” from my organizing business… which means WAY less appointments, meetings, etc.

Oh I can’t wait!


Colorful Masking Tape:

The last product I want to tell you about is Invite L’s really fun line of colorful masking tape. Their tape comes in different widths, colors, and patterns and I actually use it in place of labels — because it just looks so much nicer!

Of course you could use this tape for anything you would use normal tape for as well… and just think of what a fun addition it would be to holiday gifts, homemade cards, envelopes, or as any type of label!


These are some of my favorite Invite L. products — not only because they are so fun and attractive, but also because they are super practical and functional. What a great combination!

Hopefully I made you drool a bit over these fun organizing tools, because I’ll be back in a few weeks with a really fun Invite L. giveaway!

In the meantime, I’d love to know how YOU would use the Bag-in-Bag.

    Where would you buy this?

    I have been wanting one of these. What a great idea.

    I am actually looking at their planners right now! I like the one I have now but its not very mobile….this looks the perfect fit!

    The bag in a bag is a great idea, and it’s sort of the concept behind Miche bags. You can keep the inside of your purse constantly organized, and switch out the front cover to match whatever look you’re going for. This has been my secret to never losing things when switching purses and always being able to find something.

    I would gift it to my daughter who is due with her first child in a few weeks. It would be a terrific “diaper bag accessory” for her!

    Yay! Thanks for sharing! I’ve been looking for something like this for awhile! I think I’m going to go for it!

    Wow. The bag-in-bags are SUCH a great idea. I currently keep all my purse type items in my diaper bag which is fine most of the time but when I want to run to the grocery store without my baby, I don’t exactly want to drag the diaper bag with me. Then I’m scrambling trying to grab all the items I need to take and find a purse to put them in. The bag-in-bag is ingenious!! I’d love to own one someday.

    Yes, I’m positive the Bag-in-Bag will be SOOO handy once I’m switching my things from purse to diaper bag and back to purse again. No more wondering if I have everything I need in the right bag!

    I love this bag-in-bag. I have one already for many years, I bought it once on the airport but it is a black , not so nice as these ones
    I ordered already the light blue felt, beautifull

    Oh you’ll just LOVE the felt Bag-in-Bag!! It’s so soft and perfect for any time of year! Enjoy!

    Oh my, I think I need one of those! I hate that most purses have so few pockets. I hate having to dig forever to find what I need.

    Drool is right! Oh my goodness. I use the felt one for my everyday bags and the dual bag-in-bag for traveling with our family wherein I’ve usually got a backpack full for a day’s outings to a theme park. Awesome!
