Meet the Pouchee and then try to win one!

Updated: The winner of the very cool hot pink Pouchee is Leanna Miller! Congratulations Leanna!!

If you are home reading this and not out braving the stores on this crazy shopping day you are in for a treat. A treat that doesn't require any early mornings or long line ups AND keeps the contents of your purse so organized you simply won't believe it. It just doesn't get any better than that now does it :)


Let me introduce you to the Pouchee, the Ultimate Purse Organizer!

When organizer friend, Sandy Jenney (be sure to check out her new cute blog design!), first told me about these lovely little beauties, I have to admit I'd never heard of them before. I was intrigued and so she sent me one to try out and it sure didn't take me long to fall in love. Talk about brilliant thinking here ladies.

What makes this product so clever is that it solves a problem that annoys most women especially women that like to switch their purses up on a regular basis. The Pouchee is designed to carry all your essential purse items in one spot so that when you want to change your bag or purse up you simply just grab your Pouchee and move it from one bag to another. Just like that. Two seconds flat. No fumbling around trying to make sure you get everything. Forget having to say ever again "oh drat I left it in my other purse".

Now although this little Pouchee is compact (it's about 7 x 5 in) it holds A LOT. There is room for everything including your sunglasses, credit cards, money, lipsticks, chequebook, keys, notebook, cell phone, etc. Here are some of the features:

  • 5 credit card slots
  • 3 outside pockets (two of them big enough to hold a cell phone)
  • one inside zippered pocket
  • three divided areas inside
  • two inside lipstick pockets
  • magnetic closure
  • flat bottom so it stands alone
  • two cute circle carrying handles

Don't be afraid to carry your Pouchee alone either. When I was at the Professional Organizer's Conference a couple of weeks ago I saw a lady doing just that and she looked fab! They come in both a cotton material and a swanky leatherette and you will absolutely not believe the color selection, it's awesome. Seriously this product is cool and it gets a big thumbs up from me.

Sandy was so nice to totally increase my cool factor by introducing me to this product. Now she wants to do the same with one lucky reader here today. Sandy is giving away a hot pink cotton Pouchee to one of you!!!

Leave a comment by Monday night (Dec 1st) at 6:00 pm PST and you too just might be sporting some new organized coolness in the very near future :)

If you'd like to purchase a Pouchee of your own or for a Christmas gift, you can do so easily enough by visiting Sandy's site, Organize With Sandy.

JLPierce Ohana said...

That sounds like the perfect purse solution! Pick me!

This things looks like it would save me many hours of digging through my bottomless purse!

Lindsay said...

Love it! Want it!

Kay said...

JanMary said...

Super idea - I NEED one of these, and the pink is perfect :)

SAN-y-T said...

OOOOOOHHHHH pick me, pick me!

I need this so that I can stop buying bags to fit all my stuff :o(

stampinwithbeth said...

What a great product! I would love to be picked as your winner!

Cole said...

That is such a great idea! I love it! :) I'm always digging around in my purse trying to find stuff.

Thanks!

Cammy said...

Love it! I've finally conquered purse clutter and this would be a nice way to maintain it. :)

pam in tx said...

I would love the chance to win one! Fab find!

Colleen said...

Love this, love this!

I work at 3 different sites a day. Have to rummage through my purse for my keys and lipstick to make the switches. Have almost no time to do that!
Yay for the brilliant mind who thought this up!

mermaids said...

this would be perfect for the bag i use for use for school. i'm a substitute teacher....doesn't that mean i deserve it? :)

JoyD said...

I've got a Bag organizer and its really useful ,, Love it!!!

Megs said...

Very neat! And I love pink! :)

HDMac said...

What a great find!!!! I would LOVe to win!!!! Thanks for the opportunity!

Debbie (Franklin Pk, IL) said...

Those are just adorable. I'd love to win one.

Granna said...

Hey - I like that!! I would love one!

KJB said...

That's brilliant. I move all my purse contents into a basket, and then place them into the new purse (with a bit of purging). This would be a big improvement. :-)

Candy said...

I would love to have several of these where would I get them? I could really get organized using them for other things besides my purse.

Tim, Allyson, Emahry, and Jonathan said...

As a mom of two under 18 months, I'm known to just throw my keys and license into the diaper bag. This would be so much better!!

Anonymous said...

ooooh, I can't wait! :)

Harmony said...

Cool giveaway! Some people are so creative and I love it!

Kelly said...

That is just the thing I need!! I love switching purses a lot but hate messsing with switching all of my stuff over. This would be so easy!

cuddles said...

Ooooh! These look super neat! I have a small make-up bag that I keep all of my essentials in for easy purse-switching, but there's always extra things lurking around that also need to be switched. This would eliminate all those extra things! Great idea! I want one!

Evelyn Ward de Roo said...

Brill!

Dana said...

cool, I've never heard of these before. Looks like they are really neat!

Barbara H. said...

This sounds perfect. I do love to switch purses to match my outfit, but it is so annoying to have to clean everything out from one purse to the other. And for just a quick run somewhere where all you need are the essentials, you can just grab that and go!

BTW, Monday is Dec. 1, not Nov. 30. :-)

What a neat little idea! I love it! and the pink matches my phone!
I'd love this to tuck into the diaper bag, and when I'm on a quick shopping run I could pull it out and go!

Avlor said...

Looks much better than the line of pockets I've been trying to organize my purse with. Very spiffy!

Amy said...

THAT'S AWESOME!!!!It would be great for keeping my stuff together in the diaper bag when I just want to carry one bag. How cool.

sara said...

fun!

would be a great gift for my mama!

junebug69 said...

oooh! count me in...I just told my friend the other day "I wish they made something to keep all your stuff in that could move from purse to purse" and YEAH! They did!

Maria said...

Wow, what a fabulous idea. No more getting to the till and realising you've left your purse in another bag. Or, is that just me?

Megan said...

What a great idea! Thanks!

Kyle and Rachel said...

I just bought 2 new purses and this would make switching between them SO much easier!

Trisha said...

I love this, what a great idea!

Jen S. said...

Finally somebody came up with this! I have needed something like this for years. Woo!

Sara said...

Considering I'm constantly changing purses this is great for me! I hope I win!!

Carrie said...

I would love to try this out and organize my purse! Thanks for the great site!

onlymehere said...

What a wonderful idea!! I certainly could use this too bz I like to change purses frequently!!

Susanne said...

Too fun! That would fit right into my purse love.

Stephanie's Mommy Brain said...

I need all the coolness help I can get!!

Tammy B said...

ooo, thanks for the chance to win one. i have a girlfriend who is a purse changer so this would be a perfect gift for her!

Lisa said...

Oh that little sucker is brilliant!

Amy said...

I opened my purse today in a checkout and an unwrapped tampon was in plain sight. If it's not that, it's an unwrapped sucker or broken crayons. Congrats on a great product!

Micah and Katie said...

Great Idea, I thought after having a baby that my days of carrying a purse were over. OH I really hope I am the lucky winner!!

Tracy said...

I would love one of those for my purse!!! I'm always looking for stuff in my purse!!!

Momma Bear said...

Oh Thank God! Someone has thought of this! I'm constantly switching from my diaper bag to my purse and I keep forgetting either my sunglasses, my cell phone or tylenol, etc.
thanks for the chance to win!

canearl said...

Love that!! If I don't win I'll probably buy one- that's such a good idea.

Traveling Woman said...

Really looks like a "must have". I really would like to win this one.

Mamame said...

What a wonderful idea! I can see how that could be great to have even for my college student daughter who sometimes uses a purse and sometimes just uses her backpack. VERY cool!

Hautemama said...

What a wonderful product! The site wouldn't let me comment - I'm glad I tried again... pick me! I'll most likely end up buying one anyways though...

Nicole at Colie's Kitchen said...

What a fun idea! My purse is always such a nightmare! This would be great to make my purse functional. I change purses a lot, so it would be nice to be able to just pull it out and move on to the next purse! Super idea!!

Anonymous said...

Looks like a great idea! No more sorting through items in my purse!

AmyR said...

Very cute and a girl always needs something in pink. I think it would be very cool not to have to dig for things.

Dot said...

I'm sure if, I had something as convenient as a Pouchee, I'd change my purse more often to match my current outfit. I have a friend whom I see carrying a different purse every time I see her...I wonder if she is hiding a Pouchee in there?!

Melissa said...

What a great little organizer! I'd love to have it!!

Jenny said...

Thank kind of organizer is great for someone like me, who likes backpacks and not purses, but sometimes has to carry one anyways. I duplicate some things between the bag and the purse, but somethings you just have to transfer, no matter what!

Anonymous said...

This looks like excatly what I need. My children call my purse "Mary"(as in Mary Poppins)because I practicaly have to take everything out of my purse to find something.
My e-mail is smills18080@yahoo.com

Mercy said...

womandriver said...

Definitely something to help us who change purses on a regular basis. My husband can not understand why I NEED so many purses... hee hee.

Melissa said...

Oh that sounds great!I love this Idea!!!

Surviving said...

Very cute! I've been looking for something to help me keep my purse organized.

MarlaJen said...

Great idea--I need help with my purse!

Eames said...

Once I had kids, my purse was no longer my own and the bag I carry often changes through the day - depending on the activity we are going to and the 'emergency' materials we will need... the biggest pain is trying to make sure that I have MY necessary ID, which never changes between bags. This is accessory is exactly what I've been looking for!

That is a neat idea.

Elizabeth said...

Pouchee!!

Anonymous said...

I am a purse-a-holic!! I have been known to change purses 3 or 4 times a week, depending on my outfit, my mood, etc. This is about the cutest thing I've seen in a long time and I would LOVE to win one.

Richelle said...

That is very cute!

Paula said...

What an awesome idea...and such a great thing to win!

mom2triplets04 said...

What a great product. Pick me I so need some cheering up after losing my niece this week.

Sandra said...

I've always looked at purse organizers and this one looks the best by far! I soooo need one of those!

Amanda said...

I need this so bad! I am a mother of three young kids with another one on the way. I have long since traded in the purse for a diaper bag. The problem with most diaper bags is that they do not provide space for Mommy items. I have plenty of pockets for sippy cups and wipes, but no where to safetly put my lipgloss and wallet. I do not need my make-up items lost in a sea of crayons at the bottom of the diaper bag. This item is at the top of my Christmas list!

Very cute and practical too!

Jenny said...

cute, versatial, how wonderful!

denise said...

Wow that is great! My handbag not only has way to many pockets for things to get lost in, but recently the lining tore. Not too fun digging through torn layers of lining to find the right lipstick. What a great idea! Thanks for sharing it.

the ordinary princess said...

That is brilliant! I love room purses but then I just end up with a jumble at the bottom. In fact I just bought a useless small makeup bag for my purse the other day. I would love the Pouchee (and the name is fun too!)

DebW said...

I would so like to win this! I really dread changing purses because some of them don't have a proper place for my items. They become all mixed up inside my purse and I fumble trying to find things, UGH!

KiminSD said...

I'd love to have one of these - if I win I'm going to give it to my mother-in-law for Christmas - she could certainly use one!

Kim

Annette said...

I love it - I don't switch purses because it is too much trouble. But with this, I will definitely do so. Great idea!

Annette

Me said...

This looks awesome. I can never find a purse I like because I need pockets inside. this will solve my problems! Yeah

Susan said...

This is so nice! What a clever idea...great for teens, college students, working women, and busy moms on the go! I'd love to have one, and would probably buy several more!

Cari said...

That is SO cool. I could so have used that yesterday -- I forgot several of my discount cards while shopping because I only switched my DL & a couple of CCs. Pick me!

Liz said...

I love them and all the colors

Gina said...

I need one! Great color choices.

amy said...

Totally cool and just want I've been needing!

Heidi said...

SO cute! I love this idea!

Angela said...

I made myself a small purse organizer last year, and it helps, but this one looks awesome! I'd love to have one that holds everything, not just a few things. And what girl doesn't love hot pink? ;)

Regina W. said...

I am new to your site and love it. I love this little baby. I am a teacher at a high school and don't like to carry my purse into schoo. This would allow me to slip into my teaching bag nice and easy. What a great solution. I would love one.

MamaFeelgood said...

That looks fabulous and I could definitely use it

Diane said...

I am a homeschool mom who is always on the go. This would be perfect for those field trips where I do not want to carry a big purse but need "just a little something" to put stuff in. I always struggle with purse organization, this would be a big help! Thanks for the idea...

lady said...

Good luck to me (and to all the other women who entered). This looks like a great product. Probably better than the long thing with pockets that rolls up.

Sandra said...

Fabulous idea - count me in!!!! Good luck to everyone:)

Carey said...

Some women love shoes; some women love clothes; I love purses! I have many of them, and change them regularly. This would work very well for me! I would love to win!

This looks fabulous.

What a great idea! I would switch purses more often if I had something like this. Thanks for sharing it, and please enter me into your drawing. Thanks.

My mother has been looking for just this type of item!! It would be wonderful to win one for her, as we're not 'buying' any gifts for each other this year. :)

Jaime said...

what a fantastic idea! i would love to win!

Anonymous said...

Those are too cute! I'd love to win one. I am one of those women who has a closet full of purses that I never use, because I hate changing purses. I'm lucky if I change twice a year, once for fall/winter, and once for spring/summer. I think this would change that!

The pink pouchee would be perfect with the recycled pink messenger bag I just bought my 22 yr old at tradeasone. Nothing like the gift of organization. Hope I win!

This would even be easy to throw into the diaper bag, which is my purse of choice these days.

I'd love one of these, sure would make it easy to change up purses and use my stash of them. I think I'll put it on my Christmas list!

Emily Weiss said...

Gabe said...

Oh I LOVE it! I've been wishing for something like that. Something that can go in the diaper bag and hold all of MY stuff, but that I can easily take out when I'm not going to have the baby with me!

lauritsenfamily said...

This is great! I hate having a purse and a diaper bag, now I can put this in the diaper bag- wow- just like the mom above me! I think I may even use this as a holiday gift.

Kiy said...

Oh, this is wonderful! Right now, all I carry is a diaper bag but there is no place to stash MY stuff! It gets dumped in the bottom or (don't cringe here) right now all my stuff travels around in a zip-loc baggie. Yes, I need a life! :)

I've been looking for something exactly like this. This looks so much better than the long thing with pockets...I'm so glad I didn't buy one of those! Thanks for sharing.

NCavillones said...

This is perfect for switching from my diaper bag to my purse... though these days, my diaper bag IS my purse, since I hardly ever go anywhere without the babe. LOL

Stephanie @ Keeper of the Home said...

That's awesome, Laura! Now that my baby is a little bigger, I switch between a diaper bag and a bigger purse, and I am forever forgetting things that I wish I had brought. I love it!

I'll take one of each please. :-)

Love it! Thanks for the review!
