Types of Purse Insert Organizers

Just as there are many types of handbags available, there are also many types of purse organizers and insert organizers as well. The tricky thing about most of these products is that they are mainly available on the company websites. However, occasionally you'll get lucky and find a few at your local retail or department store like Target, T.J. Maxx, and Sears. Here are a few of the types of handbag insert organizers available.

Open Inserts

These types of organizers are substantial in size and are very versatile. They may have a variety of open pockets and sections to place your items for easy reach. These closely resemble organizer purse liners, but these can be removed and easily placed in another bag by handles or other placement method. An example of this type of insert is the popular Chameleon Insert, available in small, medium, and large sizes, and the Presto Purse.

Pouch-Type Inserts

Pouch type insert organizers are slightly more streamlined than open inserts in that their design is typically in a rectangular or other pouch design with a top that zippers or snaps closed. These organizers may also have external open pockets and card slots. Pouchee Insert is an example of this type of organizer.

Peripheral Pocket Organizers

Arguably the most popular type of insert organizer, this type is designed be curled to go around the internal lining of the handbag with open, stand-up pockets. Some designs also feature closed pockets for change or other accessories, cell phone pockets, and card slots as well. The central area of the purse remains open for large or bulky items. These can be used in many shapes and sizes of purses. There are also a variety of patterns available for crafters and those who can sew to make their own. An example of this style of organizer is the popular Purseket Organizer.
