Value-for-money Bag Organiser

Don't you just hate it that bags nowadays don't come with enough compartments to keep your contents like keys and wallet and lipsticks and whatever not organised so that you do not need to rummage through your bag just to find that pack of tissues?

Or that you've changed your bag today to suit your outfit (or your mood) and then half way through the day you realised that you left that favourite colour lipstick in your other bag because you forgot to transfer everything?

For me, I have always liked everything in an organised condition so that it will give me that convenience. In this case, I love a bag that's organised because I would want to have that peace of mind knowing that I can just slot one hand into my bag and instantly pull out the car keys just before I hit the parking lot, with a baby in one hand and other stuff to carry on the other to minimise the risk of being mugged at a parking lot.

I would like to just slot my hand into my bag and instantly pull out my mobile phone because I hate it when a phone is left ringing unattended because it can be a noise pollution for me especially when Jada had just fallen asleep and I need her to sleep peacefully....

And I just like to have that control in my life knowing that this little 'organisation' of contents in my bag is just a small matter that I do not need to get all stressed out just because I couldn't find Jada's lip balm for her dry chapped lips or my trusted pen as I had switched bags earlier. Trust me, with everything [almost] in chaotic mode at home and disorganised because the boss is your little girl and not you, having an organised bag does give a BIG relief to a housewife with a low self-esteem like me :(

I had recently wanted to get a bag organiser but I've been putting that intention away for awhile because the ones that I know sell it online at more than RM100 a piece. I would like to view and touch it for myself before putting in the order but I always knew that I should look harder before making that decision.

But... what do you know... my wish was answered yesterday, at a visit to Guardian pharmacy in Bangsar Shopping Centre while getting some toiletries and my stock of baby wipes - an offer from Guardian I simply couldn't resist!

a bag organiser in its original fuss-free packaging...

i purposely chose a hot pink tone to go with a hot momma. HAHA...

yeayy... i now know exactly where everything is...

and on the other side, i still have plenty of pockets for more lippies!!

or, i could just leave one pocket empty for other more important stuff.

i love that it has more compartments inside!! haha... i was getting pretty excited with this discovery ;P

see... it fits in my medium-sized bag just nice.

if not for the pink tone, the organiser wouldn't even be visible once my bag is shut... ahhh... i feel joy ;P

This bag organiser can only be obtained at the check-out counter in 4 attractive colours - black, pink, green and darn... I totally forgot the other one... possibly, yellow. If you buy RM40 worth of Guardian products, you'd get it FOC. I didn't buy enough Guardian-brand items and bought this for a cool RM14.90.

I am impressed at how durable the material feels and I think it is such a steal for the amount you're paying. I can feel that the stitching details are also pretty strong although I cannot say anything much since I've only used it for a day... still, for a price so cheap, I do not mind giving it a test... see how long it will last under my care...

Owh, and in my haste to get out of Guardian, I totally forgot to check how long this promotion will last. A quick look see on their website doesn't even mention this promotion. So, I'm afraid you'd need to head on to the nearest Guardian outlet if you're interested in this deal.
