How to Organize a Tote Bag With a Tote Organizer

Updated: Jan 29, 2023

Your tote bag is probably one of your most prized possessions and the accessory that you use on a daily basis. There’s nothing like an everyday bag that’s luxurious and protects all of your personal belongings. Even though there are many different everyday bags — including cross-body bags, small purses, and backpacks — the tote bag is big typically big enough to use as a gym bag, work bag, and even beach bag.

The tote bag typically features a versatile boxy-like frame that can fit a spare change of clothes, water bottle, and laptop. Many people wouldn’t use this bag as an evening bag or a bag they’d bring for a night out with friends. But, they’d certainly bring it with them at night if they’re going out straight from work or the gym.

Even though we’re big fans of tote bags, it can be easy to lose your stuff in there. Its empty space leaves personal items to get misplaced or hard to reach. Having so much room is a blessing and a curse — it’s a blessing because you can fit big items but it’s a curse because your smaller items don’t have a place to be. Tote bags don’t typically include any compartments or many zipper pockets. Without an organizer, you’ll find yourself throwing everything into an empty abyss.

Tote bag organizers are essential for saving time and protecting your bag from spills and other potential messes. Like a purse organizer, tote organizers come in different colors and include compartments in different sizes to insert your things. Whether you have a large tote or a smaller tote, we want to show you how to organize your tote bag with Luxe Goodz’ tote bag organizers.
