In attempts to make things simpler, I found a solution that really really did help me. I discovered it from Hillary Clinton, how she packs her handbag with nylon mesh bags.
My handbag/tote bag is my version of a car. I used to just have a makeup bag and everything else just flew around inside. I hate the pockets inside bags because they are always too small. I like a bag where I can unzip it all the way and see everything.
I've learned my lesson. If you ever carry this style bag, the mesh bags are so helpful.
In one mesh bag I have pens, highlighters and two tape measures. In another, a small notebook, extra phone battery and the last one has tissues, lip stuff, lipsticks, small hairbrush, hair clip. The only thing that is loose is my wallet.
Look on the website. They have black, metallic and hot colors. I only use the nylon because I like the way they feel and they are easy to keep clean.
