I love to organize!
These upcycled ice cream bucket organizer bags are a must!

You can organize your entire life with some fabric, a bucket, and some sewing skills!
Anyone can make these...pick whatever fabric you want.
make it pretty or industrial!

The cool thing about these, is you can pack the bucket full of stuff
and still pack stuff in around the bucket! 
They hold gangs of stuff and keep the "junk drawer" virtually empty!

These will make you look totally organized and sophisticated.
You will want to organize everything in sight!

You know, this is brilliant as an organizer, but I think I may use this and try to make my own purse/handbag. I'm SO PICKY about bags, and it seems like every purse I've bought over the last 15 years has made me curse at one point or another. Not enough pockets, not a wide enough top opening, not enough pockets, too-short shoulder strap, not enough pockets...

... do you get the idea that I like pockets? Because I do. I TOTALLY do. :D

Thank you!
I totally agree with you! I love a pocket bag!

I bought one of these bag organizers...http://www.amazon.com/kilofly-Insert-Organizer-Expandable-Handles/dp/B009BKWE9U/ref=sr_1_cc_1?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1389710086&sr=1-1-catcorr&keywords=bag+organizer

It can be pulled out of one bag and stuffed into another...you could make something like that or just buy one for $4. :)

You're right, those are awesome!! The only issue I have with it is that it's not made by me! For some reason I've been wanting to make my own purse for a good 5-6 years now. I haven't yet, it's still cooking in my brain, but... .soon. :D
