This bestseller from Amazon has nearly 3,000 positive reviews—and practically as many pockets for your things. OK, it actually has 13 pockets (three on the exterior and ten on the inside), but that tally includes a zippered wallet section that can be removed and carried on its own. Available in 12 different colors, it’s easy to find one that matches the interior of whatever bag you own. The only downside? The felt material can be hard to keep clean. But at $20, it’s not too big of an investment.

If security is what you’re actually after, here’s an organizer that will give you peace of mind. It’s equipped with RFID-blocking technology (meaning it protects digital thieves from stealing your credit card and driver’s license info via their embedded radio frequency identification chips) for all of its eight pockets. The elastic detailing on the interior will make sure your items stay put, while the top handles make swapping this between purses a total breeze.

Some bags feel like black holes: You drop your wallet or lipstick in and can’t find them again unless you empty the entire thing out on the floor. The same can apply to some organizers that are so big, they’re practically their own universe. Not this one, which is equipped with teeny LED lights that turn on with the simple click of a button and automatically shut off after one minute. Plus, reviewers note that the non-bulky size makes it an easy addition to totes and purses of all sizes.
