In the article, professional organizing guru Julie Morgenstern specifically recommends our own made-in-the-USA purse organizer as a solution to keep makeup and other handbag items in check:
“[Morgenstern] also likes the Purse Perfector, a two-part zippered pouch that divides in half. Office essentials (pens, reading glasses) can be placed on one side and makeup on the other. ‘When you go out at night, you can unzip and take your makeup with you,’ she said.”

We designed a new Purse Perfector that will fit your French or checkbook wallet horizontally, yet fit your purses as well as the original size.
Now 9″ long!
We’ve added a strip of the durable fabric to either side of the zipper tape so that the zippered center section will be long enough and wide enough to fit your wallet and give you a little more room in the other eight interior and three front exterior pockets.
The back pocket is perfect for:
Credit Cards or
Your Hotel Key Card!
We’re very excited to introduce the new size in the bi-color combinations that have been extremely popular: Black with Berry interior or Black with Silver Sage interior. Still hand-crafted in San Francisco, the new larger size is $64.
Go on – treat yourself or your best friend with the large Purse Perfector and fill the black hole in your handbag with the ultimate organization tool!
It’s the time of year when we shift our storage areas, clothes, coat closets and shoe racks from summer to fall and fall to winter. At Purse Perfector, we thought we’d ask a professional organizer, Wendy Taddeucci of La Porte, Indiana, how she would alter the contents of her Purse Perfector as the seasons change.
Simply Organized, LLC was launched in October of 2005 and provides Wendy the opportunity to work with clients to control their clutter and establish systems that save time and money. Wendy says that her goal is to have them, “know what they have and where to find it.”
Wendy agreed to share some of her Purse Perfector usage secrets with our blog when thinking about changing seasons. She stated that, “this summer I kept my Purse Perfector loaded with a small tube of sunscreen, which I have swapped out in favor of a tube of hand cream for the fall and winter. I don’t have to worry about the tube opening up or getting squished. It’s secure in the Purse Perfector.”
Wendy also says that she most enjoys her Purse Perfector because of “the ease of use! I loaded it up once and now I can swap out purses whenever I want. I just remove the Purse Perfector from my current purse and place it into my new purse. It’s so simple!”
Some more information about Wendy: She is an active member of NAPO (National Association of Professional Organizers); she is a trained provider for NAPO in the Schools; she is a member of the NSGCD (National Study Group on Chronic Disorganization); and she has earned her Level II CD Specialist Certificate as well as her Certificate of Study in Chronic Disorganization.
Wendy has been featured on A & E’s Hoarders, WNDU Channel 16 News, as well as in print.
One woman’s success story of starting a business

A short excerpt
It only took showing the Purse Perfector to a few of her friends for Lyn to realize that it wasn’t just a personal problem that she had solved, but that she had created something that would make life easier for women across the globe.
“In the fall of 2001, I was alone at home for a weekend and spent it in my sewing room, determined to figure out the perfect purse design in order to solve my problem,” Lyn says, “and I came out of this room days later with a prototype that now is the basis for the Purse Perfector.” After spending countless hours creating and recreating, Lyn had come up with the ideal insert to fit every bag in her collection, including backpacks and briefcase.” Read the full article on exmainer.com
As my recent blog entry described, the last year has been a great education for me in getting the Purse Perfector out of my sewing room and into your purses and handbags. But a recent interview with Lucy May of the Cincinnati Business Courier, helped expand on those thoughts.
Kathi Burns, CPO and Author of How to Master Your Muck writes, “I was asked to test out a new product recently and I have to say – I love it. This entrepreneuer has designed a clever new way to clear the everyday muck from our handbags!…”
Lyn, you are a genius. I can’t wait to see the excited faces of everyone who will enjoy the Purse Perfector as a gift this holiday season and beyond! So happy to see your wonderful success and marriage of a great idea to the non-profit world!
