Day 16 Purging Purses via A Bowl Full of Lemons


Purge Day 16:  Purses

Task:  Gather together all purses & bags from your home.  Ask yourself these questions, then purge away!  Try your best to purge as many as you can.  Simplify your closets!

  • Have I used this purse in the last year?
  • Is it still in style?
  • Is it in good condition (stains, holes, etc)?
  • Can I live without it?

Organizing Tip:  Store bags & purses on a bookshelf or top shelf, in your closet.  Use bag covers (if they come with your purse), to extend the life of the purse.


If you are new to the purge, start at the beginning HERE. Don’t forget to share your purge pictures on Instagram using the hashtag #abfol31daypurge.

    The Container Store carries handbag storage bags for your purses that don’t come with them. I need to get a few. Struggling with purging purses……my one major obsession. Gulp!

    Oh, use within the last year… This is going to be a tough one for me!

    As I begin working with my purses, your floral bags stay on my mind. Do you mind sharing the brand. I adore them~~

    Thank you!

    Because the purses are in bags, you can’t tell which one is which. It might be helpful to label the shelf below it with the name, e.g. “Red Michael Kors” or “Yellow Ostrich satchel.”

    It’s not purses I have a problem with, its those darned reusable grocery bags! I had a time where I was without transportation and always forgot them, so I’d get another (and then another) from the store – and now there’s probably ten total somewhere in my house! But if I was honest, and asked myself if I’d been using them in the past year, the answer would be no. Now just to go find them all!
    Thanks for this challenge!
