Not Quite the Butler Bag… But Oh, So Organized!

Last week my sister and niece were visiting from Connecticut. I was showing her my wish list on Wishpot. One of the items on the list was the Butler Bag:

Isn’t she pretty?  Do you see that perfectly organized interior! And such shiny leather… Oh well…

I knew that the Butler bag would stay on my wish list for a long time because it was so expensive at $165.00!

After the lengthly purse lust we decided to go shopping…So we headed to the outlets. My sister needed some shoes and a new bag… me, I was just along for the ride… or so I thought.

We went into the Bass Outlet to check out their shoes. After a while we wandered back to look at the purses and bags. My sister picked up a bag and opened up. “Donna, Look at this!” I glanced over and nearly tackled her to steal the bag from her. This bag’s interior looked just like the Butler bag that I have on my wish list (minus the fancy leather) AND… it was 50% off with an additional 50% off!!! The original price was $76.00 after the discount it was only $18.00!

I finally let go of the bag and let my sister have it (with much sadness)  I hunted around and found another one in red.

Here she is… my wannabe butler bag:

See the nice organized spaces inside!

This is the bag with all of my stuff inside (there is also a spot for my laptop which I love!)

This bag is a perfect friend for my Pouchee! Who fits inside perfectly!

I’m so happy to finally have a bag that I can use as a diaperbag but it looks like a normal bag. I love that everything stays in place even when the bag is moved all around. No more fishing for my lip balm in the bottom of the bag!

While it’s hard to find these bag organizers now (7 years later, 2016!) you can find a great purse organizer at Amazon….

THIS Purse Organizer looks great!!

I’m participating in I’m an Organizing Junkie’s September Challenge : Organize Your Purse! Sorry there is no before picture… I got so wrapped up in the excitement of it all that I didn’t take one!

For those moms out there, do you carry a diaper bag or a purse or both? Does anyone out there own a Butler bag? Is it worth the money?

    I bought a butler bag from Avon. It was $19.99 with any purchase of $15.00. It’s really nice too. It’s not leather, however, it has the compartments in the bottom. I believe you can purchase it on Avon.com.

      Thanks, Jill. I took a look and that bag is nice too. It was priced as $39.99 which is still a good price. I’ve been loving my bag, it’s nice not having to dig around for things anymore!

    I just wanted to leave a comment regarding the Butler Bag. I was able to grab the Butler Bag Essentials (Purse) from Kmart. Yes. That is right. It is very nice and I got it for $24 bucks. I am happy. It is brown. I am well on my way to being organized like the rest of the ladies.

    I realize my comment is a couple years late – but if you still check these comments – what brand was that “wannabe” Butler bag?
