My work purse is a heavy, full of too much stuff pocketbook/satchel. It is not pretty by any means, although at one time It was pretty darn cute. Now it is more functional than cute.
It has a camo theme, but still has bright colors. The bottom of it is leather or pseudo leather and makes it easier to clean. The inside has a wide opening pouch that is wonderful to stuff a bunch of crap into.
It is full to the brim with a variety of "stuff".
I have bills that need to be paid, statements from Roth IRA's, and super old bank statements.
The side pouch has my work phone,the two cords for charging, and the charger for my iPhone.
Checkbook, date planner, a Baggie of gift cards that I need to use and probe covers that I use at work. And a really old candy cane.
More of the gift cards and dry socks.
I went through all the letters, bills ( several of which I paid over the phone) and shredded what was no longer necessary. All of what you see above is going back into my purse.
It is still packed to the brim, but it is a much neater chaos and I can mostly find what I need. Next is the wallet. It needs some serious attention!
