Nicole Richie's genius bag-organising hack

We all know that feeling; you’re tearing through your handbag, searching for your keys, your wallet, your phone, and all you wind up with is a heap of frayed tissues and a leaking, icky lip gloss.

Nicole Richie, style icon, founder of the lifestyle brand Honey Minx and mother of two has been there. And then some.

“I, like a lot of women, always tend to have anything I might need during the day in my bag,” she says.

“From jewellery to sunglasses, hand lotions, to tea bags and reusable cups and being the Virgo that I am, I need organisation in my life.”

So Nicole took matters into her own hands, so to speak.

To keep track of her never-ending bag stuffers, she created a series of smaller bags for Honey Minx — shown in the video above — which she fills with various essentials and then tosses into her larger bag.

“My phone is out, and I have my keys out. That’s fine. Then I have a bag for anything, especially if I’m traveling, any sort of cords, any chargers, electronics, and anything like that, I have that bag. Then I have a self-care bag for my essential oils and hand lotion, along with a bag for my jewellery, too.”

“I just like feeling organised, and I like feeling like my bag is clean,” she says.
