Start with something simple, like your purse. Completely empty all pockets, pouches, and compartments. Dispose of all garbage, recycle expired coupons, shred expired credit cards and receipts. Remove duplicate items and items that haven't been used in over 6 months. Look at what remains and decide if those items are essentials. Group essential items by type (e.g., make up, credit cards/cash, eye care, etc). Containerize like items together by placing them in small pouches (preferably clear), ziplock baggies, or buy a purse organizer. If you decide you want a purse organizer, check out the Purseket, I have one and love it.
