    47. A purse organizer insert you can easily slide into any bag, from a tote to a designer dig, for instant pockets to organize your life. Another perk? If you're switching out your purse, all you have to do is slide the organizer out and pop it in with all your stuff raring to go.

    48. A four-piece sock and underwear organizer to spare you the indignity of rooting around your dresser drawers every morning looking for that one! specific! bra!! that is *definitely* in there somewhere. (The comfy one, to be clear.)
