Ann-ya Pouch

Anybody else get a little giddy about impeccably folded winter sweaters, coordinating shoe boxes, or super-organized purses with the perfect spot for each and every thing? Me too.

My latest organization obsession in the organization arena are beautiful pouches for carrying miscellaneous items in my purse, tote, or desk drawers. I use one pouch for snacks, a baby spoon, and a folded bib; another for my out-and-about comfort: chapstick, hand sanitizer, and tissue. And I think I need one more to round out my obsession: cash, a few quarters, and my MetroCard. In a pinch, I could just grab it and go.

Collecting like-items in my bag limits the craziness of trying to pull out the one thing I’m looking for among the dozens of floating (and often sticky) objects in my bags.

There are so many beautiful options across the internet but click through for a few of my favorites.

Geometric zippered pouches. (I don’t think I’ll ever tire of geometric textiles and design.)

And for the gals who like flare, a gold leather pouch. There’s also the basic Baggu pouches, too.

Do you have any bag/purse/luggage organization tips and tricks? Do you love pouches, too?

P.S. — Tiny Treasures are inexpensive, accessible items that really up the quality quotient in your life. You can find all the posts in this series here.
