Last night I was watching ABC News and they did a story about our heavy purses. Check it out for yourself if you missed it.
I thought I would rerun this essay for you. I know your purses are too heavy.
Is your purse so heavy that it hurts your shoulder to wag it? Is your purse dragging you down! As SHEs we tend to feel out of control unless we have all the stuff we might need at our finger tips. When you look into your purse is it a bottomless pit that you are unable to find what you are looking for! Has your purse become a hot spot that is turning into a black hole?
My purse used to be just like yours. The bigger the better! You could say I carried a diaper bag and I didn’t have a baby. Why do we do this to ourselves?
As my life has become more organized I don’t have to carry as many items with me. Less is more has become my mantra. Let me look in my purse and tell you what I have in it. I have my wallet, a small purse organizer, and a plastic medicine box. That is all I need.
Everything I put in my purse is small. My wallet is thin enough that I can put it in my pants pocket and go! I have used this wallet for several years and have loved it so much that I have given it to all my friends to use. They have loved it too. This is when I showed it to Michele and Paddi and asked them if we could get these for our ladies. They thought that it would be a great new tool to help our members reduce the clutter in their wallets and purses. It is a thin flat wallet with see through place for your drivers license and 5 slots for your credit cards and insurance cards on one side and on the other side is zippered pocket for change and unzippered pocket for paper money folded in half. I keep an extra key to my car in the zippered part so I don’t have to wag my keys when I am traveling light. We have all locked ourselves out of our car.
Today is Friday, clean out your purse day; Now go set your timer and clean out your purses!
Less is More!
You all love our FlyLady Wallet as much as the FlyCrew and I do.
Here is a short sweet testimonial! LOL
I just had to write you and let you know how much I love my new Flylady Wallet. It is so nice to be able to reach into my purse and pull out my wallet with my money, ID, and assorted cards. You have made my life one step easier.
