Big bags are displacing mini bags: organise them smart with these 5 simple tips .
Maxi bags offer space for essentials and much more - like untamed chaos. I'll show you how to keep the inside of your bag from taking on a life of its own.
According to the Duden dictionary, a bag is "designed to hold things that someone wants to carry with them". In recent years, fashion's obsession with tiny bags has reduced these "things" to a sweet and three coins. The fact that a bag is not only an accessory, but also an object of utility and is meant to equip us for everyday life outside our own four walls, was probably forgotten somewhere between lockdown number one and vaccination number three. . But in keeping with the return to the wide world, macro is now the order of the day instead of micro: from huge blazers to chunky shoes and baggy jeans - the oversize trend has a firm grip on the fashion world and is finally getting to grips with tiny bags. They now have to make room for models that are suitable for everyday use and can hold not only an iPhone Pro Max, but also a book, a thermos, a laptop and half the contents of your bathroom cabinet.
Such tote bags are practical, but they have one drawback: inside them, clutter grows exponentially in size. Before you know it, you're desperately searching the unfathomable depths of your bag for a bunch of keys, rummaging through hairballs, empty Nastüechli packets and crushed chewing gum, only to fish out a long-forgotten ring instead. The inside of a roomy bag is a life form in itself - and needs to be skilfully tamed.
5 tips for a maximally tidy maxi bag
. 1. Separate neatly . Many people swear by the bag-within-a-bag system. The idea behind it: When you turn your bag upside down, you want four items to tumble out, not forty. So group loose items like lip balm and headphones into categories like cosmetics or electronics. Then put them in different bags that are, at best, clearly different from each other. That way, you'll remember where things are stored. Transparent pouches are also practical, so you can keep track of everything.

2. Arrange them vertically . Don't throw your things haphazardly in your bag and don't stack them horizontally either. Marie Kondo, the queen of order, recommends arranging them vertically, like in a hanging file. This gives you a better overview from above. This method works especially well with flat objects such as books and tablets - and if you have followed the previous tip.
.3. rely on organisers.This is all too complicated for you? Then take a shortcut. To organise the inside of your maxi bags, there are specific organisers with various compartments. They also have the advantage that you can transfer the entire contents from one bag to the other in one easy movement.
