As with any organization project the space had to be wiped clean:
I bought these men’s size shoe drawers from The Container Store because they seemed to be the perfect size, and they were as far as fitting on the shelf. Unfortunately they are a little too small for fitting some of my large purses in without completely scrunching them. But, for now, they will work. I like that they are drawers rather than totes because I can stack them on top of one another and it is still easy to get into the ones on the bottom.
The biggest challenge of organizing something I love, like purses, is that I KNOW I must get rid of the stuff that doesn’t fit. I often remind myself that my house is never going to grow so anything that doesn’t have a space must leave. Luckily I was only forced to donate 2 purses; the other ones passed the test.
