On Purse Hangers

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Last week after my "what's in my bag" post, I got a question about the "purse hanger" that I mentioned. 

 Lindsie, I want to thank you for asking and for forcing me to take a picture FOR my blog in a public restaurant! I think I've mentioned it before, but I have NEVER taken a picture specifically for my blog at a restaurant before. It's up there on my list of "How do they DO that?!?!" questions for REAL bloggers.

Well, there's a first for everything...

The purse hanger hooks to the edge of the table and it is looped in such a way that the purse balances on it without it coming off the table. 

There is nothing sticky or magnetic. The purse hanger works for pretty much any table and can hold even the heaviest of purses.

You should know that this table was super low and even though you can't really tell, the bag is NOT touching the floor.

Is that the "here we go again" face everyone talks about? ;)

 I love my purse hanger because:

I don't have to hold my purse on my lap or stuff it behind me.

I don't have to set my purse on the floor. ICK!

I don't have to take up a chair or extra space in the booth. 

So, there you go! That's what a purse hanger is, how it works, and a few of my favorite things about mine.

Now, you're probably going to ask where you can find them...

I got mine in the gift section of a sandwich shop for less than $15 (I can't remember  exactly how much, but I'm sure it was less than that). I have seen them at the mall, but most of them are very cheaply made. If you're looking for one that will last you YEARS, pay a little more in a specialty shop and you'll get a strong and sturdy one like mine.

Do you have a favorite gadget that you happened upon and now can't imagine not knowing about?


  1. I love the idea of purse hangers! One of my friends uses one everywhere she goes. I'm so bad for putting my purse on the floor, which is so so gross. I haven't been able to find one, but when I do, my purses will thank me :-)

  2. My mom has one of these and loves it!! All my purses/bags are crossbody bags so the straps are too long (the purse would be on the floor, haha), but it's definitely a good idea! :)

  3. This is such a neat gadget!

  4. My mom has one of these, and I think it's so fun! And super handy. I hate having to take up a seat or put my purse on the floor.


I love hearing from you! Please be sure to leave your e-mail so that I can reply. :)
