Howards Handbag Insert

November 5, 2009

Today I will share with you one of my favourite purchases of 2009 (lucky you!)

My Portabag – Full

I have been lusting after a portabag for quite a while – perusing online stores and stalking storage shops. Finally, I found one in Howards Storage World and D. kindly bought me one (love!) a few weeks ago. Mine was $24.95 and a medium size. This little invention is saving me time and stopping me from losing the contents of my handbag. I highly recommend it to people who change similarly sized handbags regularly as a quick solution to the changeover process. I also find it handy when I want to use a tote that has no compartments as the Portabag stops everything from jumbling at the bottom of such bags.

Keys (on attached lanyard)
Hand cream, hand sanitiser, perfume
Wallet, scripts (inner pocket)
Medical stuff
Roll on
Hair pins (in tin), ear phones, lipbalm, lollipop, Post-Its
iPhone (where the gap is)

There are five exterior pockets, four pen slots, two interior ‘open’ pockets and one interior zipped pocket, along with the key lanyard. Clearly a lot of stuff fits in this little handbag insert but it does act as a way of minimising stuff and maximising necessities. I only ever carry what I need. It also makes it easier when explaining to D. where things are inside my bag (as things never change places within the insert).

    Wow Wini – I am off to Howards right this minute. What a fabulous idea and these can also be wonderful Chrissy presents. Well done on that find. I will read your blogs for more updates on nifty purchases like this one.
    Cheers and many, many thanks.

      There is a BIG Howards at Rutherford that I visit with Mum when I’m in town. There’s also a pet store next door 🙂
