Purse Organizer

My purse seems to be the catch-all for the entire family. You can often find a variety of things including sippy cups, snacks, sunglasses, keys and LOTS of paper including receipts and coupons. It drives me crazy because I can never find anything, so I finally put an end to it. I got myself a smaller purse for Spring. Now each kid must carry their own drink and snack, which has made my purse much lighter. However, I still had the "paper problem". My wallet overflows with receipts and then I can't close. I knew this Coupon Organizer was the answer when I saw it!

Because I had to have it right away, I had to make it with fabric from my famous stash. I didn't have the Velcro called for in the tutorial, but this sticky version seemed to work just fine. And even better, the whole thing matches my new purse!

The tabs are my own creation because I was too impatient to wait, but I actually love the way they turned out. I used used manila folders and cut them down to the necessary size. You'll notice I have one for receipts, one for coupons and a blank one (for now).

All in all a good day! My purse is more organized and I got to do a fun sewing project while the kids napped. That's a win in my book!
