Giveaway: Handbag Organisation

Recently, I wrote a post about cleaning out my handbag because it looked like this:

In my post, I mentioned the Borne Naked bag liners, because I had seen them before and thought they looked fabulous.  To my surprise, a few days later, I received this lovely email in my inbox.

borne naked organising handbagSoon after our correspondence, a package arrived on my door step and I (very happily) organised my handbag, again.  I love this sort of blogging and way of working with brands, because it gives the online world a community feel.  I’m a regular mum, sharing as I live life.  And Amanda from Borne Naked is a woman who found a need and made a great product (read about it here).  It’s about real people, talking about everyday things, and I love that.

What I love about the Borne Naked Liners

The Borne Naked liners have been on my wish list for a while now, and there are three main reason why I like them, apart from the obvious organisational benefits.

1. Clear: The liners are clear so I can easily see what’s inside. There are pockets inside each liner to separate the contents.

2. Zip: Many handbag liners I’ve seen before are open at the top, and this doesn’t work for me because my handbag is thrown all about the place — in the car, out of the car, back in the car.  The Borne Naked liners have a zip at the top so the contents of my bag don’t fall all over the place. Love.

3. Easy:  I like to easily move my essentials from one bag to another, from my everyday bay, to my evening bag, to my beach bag. Easy and quick.

Borne Naked have many different liners and handbag accessories (just head to the Borne Naked website to have a look). To give you an idea of the three main sizes, you can see my regular sized handbag as a reference in the below picture.

Small: I use the small one in my regular sized handbag, and it fits in my evening bag too.

Small – L 23.5cm x H 13cm x W 7cm

Medium: The medium sized bag is fabulous for a regular bag, large bag, gym tote or nappy bag.

Medium – L 26cm x H 15cm x W 7cm

Large: The large liner is ideal for a large handbag, a nappy bag, or suit case.  I use my large one as my beauty bag when I travel.

Large – L 27.5cm x H 22.5cm x W 9cm



I wrote back to Amanda from Borne Naked, to thank her and say how much I love the liners, and also to ask if Borne Naked would like to do a giveaway with Be A Fun Mum because I want to share the love.

    My wishlist could come true too!!! I have a bag with several compartments for myself and by little ones nappies etc. But I have a beautiful Saskia handbag I want to use with only one large opening, no good for easy access to my little ones nappy goodies!! 🙂 Please grant me my wish Xo

    Ive just bought myself a new gorgeous big guess bag to replace my nappy bag. It’s a fantastic size however little things do tend to get lost. These will be on my research list when I start looking for a bag liner/organiser soon.

    Perfectly timed!! This past weekend I was gifted a gorgeous new handbag from my parents. I love it but it is a bit on the deep side which means I can see things easily getting lost deep within! A Bourne Naked organiser would be a brilliant solution to that inevitable problem! 😀

    Hats off to Borne Naked liners! Kelly was never a lover of organizing her bag (she used to like everything chucked in together). Born Naked therefore, MUST be fantastic!! I’m in. I love a compartmentalised bag 🙂

    I had been thinking of one with an open top, but you make an excellent point Kelly. With the amount of throwing my bad endures, it would never work! These ones are just the ticket!

    What a fantastic idea! I’m always losing things between my uni bag, gym bag, everyday handbag and (rarely used) evening / going out bag. I would love something that keeps it all together (visibly) that I can just grab and shift. No more getting caught out without Panadol at the school disco, or cursing dry lips at the beach. Thanks for sharing Kelly!

    I NEED this. While I love my nappy bag with all its pockets, there just aren’t enough compartments to contain all 3 kids bits and pieces and my stuff. Plus this would make it husband proof! You all know what I mean, the moment they touch the nappy bag everything just mixed about and out of place… 😉

    I have always just had one handbag because I don’t have time to transfer all the bits and pieces from bag to bag every morning as I am getting out the door – this would solve it! Would love to give them a try.

    My handbag is my worst nightmare. I am forever digging at the bottom trying to find things especially when I am in a rush it is quite frustrating but everything in there I need! This is a great idea so I can put my work phone and keys together, tissues separately etc.

    I’m using small bag to put my daughter’s stuffs (extra cloth, plaster, hand sanitiser, pawpaw, betadine, etc – she’s very active and quite often fall and hurt her knee, etc, so i must bring those things). And put it in my super big hand bag. But because its not transparent, i have to tip out everything inside to get what i need. I think this is what i need
