6 smart lifestyle hacks for packing your handbag every Singapore woman must know!
We all love rotating our treasured collection of handbags, but it can be a hassle changing from one bag to another while rushing to work. The trick is to group your items together, so you don’t end up blindly dumping everything from the “old” bag into the “new”.
Bag in a bag
Behold, the most foolproof method to seamlessly transfer your items from one handbag to another. The bag-in-bag comes with many compartments, so you can pack all your things neatly without having to fuss with re-organising them every time you decide to trot out a different handbag. Photo: Qoo10
With a pill organiser, you won’t have to worry about digging into the depths of your bag to look for smaller items and jewellery such as rings and ear studs. What’s more, you can make full use of its original function by by planning one week ahead what accessories to wear on each day. Simply open the corresponding pill compartment and you can look stylish in a jiffy, even when you’re running late. Photo: 123rf.com
Another way to contain your things is to use a portable case for sunglasses. You can stash miscellaneous items like makeup brushes and small bottles of cream in there, and just transfer the sunglasses case when you’re switching handbags. This means you’ll always have your important items with you, with all of them being super easy to find. Photo: 123rf.com
The next time you use a pen, wrap a hair tie around it before putting it back in your handbag. This ensures you can always get hold of your hair tie, which is every lady’s necessity for keeping unruly locks out of the way. This also allows you to slot in other pens and things you’ll use frequently, like a lipstick and thumbdrive. Your items will be nicely bunched up and easily moved around, too, so there’s nothing not to like about this hack. Photo: 123rf.com
Flat water bottle
If you don’t already know, yes, flat water bottles exist – and they are a great space-saver. Never again do you have to think twice about bringing your water bottle out, lest it creates an unsightly bulge in your handbag! Slide the sleek bottle into your purse and it will fit in easily with the rest of your belongings. The bottle goes by paper sizes such as A5 and A6, so you have a precise idea of its dimensions.

When you’re out and about and want to spritz on your perfume to smell fresh, using a refillable perfume atomiser is the way to go. The travel-sized bottle is so handy and cute, you can even put in your purse. And it’s so wallet-friendly that you can purchase several of them to give yourself different fragrance options to suit your mood and setting throughout the day. Photo: 123rf.com
