Professional organizer Angela Ploetz of Girlfriends Get Organized checks out the Purse Perfector with yours truly. We got together for this quick video chat at the National Association of Professional Organizers conference last month.
She appreciates how Purse Perfector fits easily in your purse, bag, or briefcase to allow you to stay organized even on the go. In her video, Angela shows how you never need to lose small items in the bottom of your bag again.
See what our customers say about giving Purse Perfectors as gifts to their mothers, daughters, wives and friends:
“My best friend had one of these and she got me one for Christmas – I absolutely love it, and now am getting these for all the Moms/Grandmas in the family as I think they’ll love them too”
- Michelle L, Los Angeles, CA
“Well, I have just ordered my third Purse Perfector and I’m sure there will be more orders to come. What a terrific idea with terrific execution – I love it. I think you have a really amazing product and the great thing is that it is not ‘made in China.’ My daughter said it is her favorite present this year. I think you have solved my gift-giving dilemmas for the foreseeable future.”
- Diane J., Alexandria, VA
“As a son, husband and father of three daughters, I have purchased a Purse Perfector for each of the women in my life. They have all been thrilled and use them daily. Purse Perfector is the perfect gift.”
- Michael H., Cincinnati OH
We know the idea of spring cleaning your whole house at once can seem a little daunting. OK, maybe a LOT daunting.
But what about just focusing on your closet? Clear out the clothes, shoes, purses and other accessories you no longer use or want. Then, you have so much room for those new spring fashions you’ve been eyeing!
First, get a little professional help.
Don’t worry — it’s free, and doesn’t involve sitting on a couch.
If you’re the type of person who likes her purse to be nicely organized, you probably also like to be prepared. But hauling around all those “things you might need” in your nicely organized purse can really weigh you down.
Fortunately, you can fully equip yourself for any situation without lugging around a 50-pound purse full of stuff.
Travel sizes to the rescue
Here are a few of our favorites, which all should fit neatly into your Purse Perfector purse organizer.
Colgate Wisp: Single-use mini toothbrush with breath-freshening bead–no water or rinsing needed.
Ms. Manicure Nail Sets: A cute little carry-all that contains must-have manicure tools—all in a double-zippered bag that also holds your polish.
Mini First Aid Kit: A reusable plastic case stocked with adhesive bandages, cotton swabs, safety pins, tweezers, mini scissors and multi-functional knife. Weighs just 1.6 ounces!
This post has nothing to do with organizing, purses or fashion. I simply wanted to share one of my favorite holiday recipes with you, in case you’d like to make it for holiday entertaining or a last-minute homemade gift.
This recipe for Southern Roasted Pecans originally came from my mother–I’ve been making them for more than 35 years. I tend to be a little more generous with the salt and cayenne pepper than my mother was when I first started making them growing up in Virginia.
Believe it or not, I make at least 40 pounds of these every year for the holidays. My pecans are a much-requested item from friends whenever they come to my home, so I have to be prepared!
Lyn’s Southern Roasted Pecans
9 cups pecans (2 lb bag plus 1 cup)
1 cup (stick) butter
1-2 t. salt
cayenne pepper to taste (I’m fairly generous)
Spread pecans on roasting pan and pour melted butter over all nuts, stirring to distribute.
Roast at 325 degrees F in the oven for 12 minutes.
Remove pan, sprinkle with salt and pepper, stir again and return to oven for another 12 minutes.
Serve as a snack or package them up in little Chinese takeout boxes as a holiday gift.
