Previously I had a pursket organizer. I liked it because it kept things in some sort of order, but eventually it was cumbersome because there was no stability making it difficult to add and remove items from the pockets even on a stable surface. So while it got the job done, after a few months using it, I gave it up in mild annoyance. The Pouchee is made differently and I like it better.
So far (after a couple months of use) the Pouchee has been exactly right. It takes my stuff from mid-size to large purses quickly and easily. To give you an idea of the items I have in this - wallet, point and shoot camera, mifi, small zip pouch for ipod headphones, ipod touch, pen, lipstick, small tube hand cream, folded cloth head band, cell phone (hangs off the side in its protective holder with the belt clip). There are a couple other smaller items in the interior zip pocket. I didn't expect to like it as much as I do. Now I will periodically change purses because it's much easier and I'm not so worried about forgetting to move an essential item. It's very much like a purse within a purse so it's stable. I do have a little difficulty at times getting my wallet back in after use when there is nowhere to balance the purse. Otherwise I'm very happy with it.
This thing rocks! It is so nice knowing exactly where everything in my purse is -- each item has it's own little pocket nothing is loose. No matter what purse I'm carrying, still everything is in it's place. I carry small purses, and this is the smallest, most functional purse organizer I could find for sale. It lifts very easy out of one purse and into another. The metal looops are a little overrated and not very useful, in my opinion, - but who cares! If you are one of those women who carries bigger purses, then this might get lost inside, so think about size when you are shopping. (many times, my purse will fit inside my girlfriends') For my smaller purses, this is perfect.
The idea behind this bag is a good one. However, I don't really use it for it's intended purpose of having it inside a larger purse because it is a little too large to comfortably fit inside most purses. I have one large black purse and I love using the organizer inside of it, but if I want to switch handbags, it is a pain to have to take everything out of this purse pouch so it can fit in a smaller purse. It really isn't a bag I would use as a purse, so it doesn't get the usage I was hoping for.
