How I Organize With Thirty-One Bags | Organize 365 #Org31

Ummmm. I have a thing for bags. And lately, it’s 31 bags.  I just love them.

I have 4 more bags that aren’t in this picture. Maybe I need an intervention.

I am not a 31 rep {although I should be!} I SIGNED UP!!

I don’t even go to or have parties. Twice I have been my own party which is how I bought some of the hostess bags.

Also, this spring I bought 2 coupon clutches. I LOVE these wallets. I use the first one for all the checkbooks and mailing supplies. We have 2 checking accounts, a health saving checkbook and a mortgage ticket book. All fit perfectly in this organizer along with return address labels and stamps.

The second coupon clutch I keep in my purse. I took the 5 dividers out of the first clutch, giving me 10 dividers for this organizer. I will be showing you my HUGE coupon binder in another post, but this one works for everyday errands and our new money envelopes for the Dave Ramsey system.

This is my daughter’s bag. She uses it ALL. THE. TIME. I love that it has the large inner bag to use for big stuff, yet you can contain smaller items in the 7 pockets so they don’t get lost.
