Oh dear. I’m so embarrassed. I just spilled my purse out for all of you to see! Luckily it’s WAY less nasty than it could be – or has been – sometimes I have weird stuff in there. Like this one time I kept an apple in my purse for a month. Gross. Then this other time I had a plastic sheep in my bag. Anyhoo, this is what’s in my bag, and as you can see, it’s completely disorganized with little things everywhere. I also have to carry my laptop in another bag, which means I’m just hauling a bunch of junk around in multiple totes, and nothing is organized.
Luckily I have some new goodies from the Martha Stewart Home Office collection at Staples. Martha has partnered with Avery on this awesome collection that includes totes, bags, laptop/tablet sleeves and more. As you would expect, I love the look and patterns that Martha has to offer. Here’s more about it.
These are the zippered pouches that are part of the collection and the first step in organizing my bag. I love the flexible material and blue zippers (I’m a sucker for those little touches). The material is also easily cleaned, which is important in a purse like mine. You never know when an apple or latte is going to get all over everything.
I was able to put all those little items from my purse into the zipper pouches. So convenient!
The next element to organizing my stuff is the tablet sleeve. I actually like to carry around an iPad in my purse sometimes when I don’t want to carry around my larger computer. I’m always concerned about breaking the thing, since I’m kind of a klutz, so luckily this iPad case is padded. AND it’s cute. I love the blue, but there are several styles available.
My tablet just slips in and I’m ready to go.
Now for the pièce de résistance – the laptop tote. My goal was to get rid of having two bags, and that is what this purse does. Thank you, Martha! It’s nice enough to carry to work if I have to visit a client, but also casual enough to take to Starbucks. LOVE this thing. And the material is easily cleaned as well, because you know this thing is going to have diet soda all over it before long.
Love the nice, padded laptop sleeve inside. I just slip my computer right in and I still have a ton of room for all of my “standard” purse goodies.
Remember my pouches? These coordinate with the bags, if you like to be matchy-matchy.
And the tote has something that my purse doesn’t have – an area for pens and electronics. Yay! I’m so organized. I hardly feel like myself.
You need to check out the full collection at Staples – there are totes of all sizes and in various colors . . . same with the laptop/tablet sleeves. The collection is beautiful, durable and sturdy. I love it. And guess what? THIS WEEK Staples is having a huge Martha promo: Spend $40 on any MSHO tote/accessory and get $10 off!
