*** GIVEAWAY CLOSED ***
Okay, so I have to tell you something: I was really reluctant to do a giveaway and review for Pouchee. In fact, I believe Pouchee contacted me no less than 10 times asking me to consider doing a review and giveaway for them.
My hesitation? Who needs a purse organizer?
I’m all about helping you to live simply and save money. A purse organizer–which was designed to help you easily switch between your purses–didn’t quite seem to fit the bill.
After all, who needs more than one purse? Isn’t that sort of excessive? How many can you use at one time, after all?
Yes, I’m a minimalist and a cynic.
But I finally relented after Pouchee‘s persistence. And I’m really glad I did. To my surprise, I actually turned out liking this product quite a bit. It’s on the pricey side ($23-$30 for a purse organizer is really steep in my book!), but it solved a dilemma I’ve had for some time.
You see, I usually carry a diaper bag packed with the basic essentials when I’m out and about with Silas–which is most of the time. But, at least once or twice a week, I leave Silas with Jesse or Grandma or our mother’s helper and I go do something with one of the girls, or Jesse or even by myself. At those times, bringing the big diaper bag along doesn’t really cut it for a purse.
So I have this small little purse I use to put my keys, phone, lip gloss, wallet, pen and lotion in when I’m going out sans diaper bag. But I don’t have two of each of those items, so it means a lot of shuffling of items back and forth between the diaper bag and my little purse.
The Pouchee has solved the shuffling issues. My keys, wallet, lip gloss, pen, phone and lotion fit neatly in it and I can quickly grab it and stick it in whichever bag I’m bringing and I’m set to go. No more digging at the bottom of the diaper bag to find my lip gloss or lotion! It saves me time, effort and thought.
So while it might seem like a completely unnecessary and extravagant item, the Pouchee has streamlined my life and made getting out the door much easier!
