When I flew to Paris on KLM, I had some new shopping options - not SkyMall! And sure enough, I found an organizing product - the Very Intelligente Pocket, from Tintamar. As you can see from the picture, it's intended to hold your normal handbag contents, and then move from purse to purse as you change your handbag.
There's a whole range of styles and colors. This is the classic VIP, in nylon, with nine pockets. Other version are different styles and have different pockets - and one version is made of leather.
There are vendors in other countries. In the USA, it's Neiman Marcus, which only has one version - and at prices that are quite a bit higher than those in Europe.
Like the idea, but want to consider other products? There's the Pouchee, reviewed by organizers Monica Ricci and Aby Garvey.
There's also this product, called PurseIn.
And there's the Purslip - "the undergarment for your purse" - which comes in three different shapes, and multiple sizes.
Bagmate is yet another handbag organizer.
And organizer Lissanne Oliver alerted me to the Borne Naked Liner.
The purseket is a different style of purse organizer - and the first such product I ever saw.
This product, called PurseNeat, is similar in style.
And finally, Kitt's Krafts on Etsy sells some purse organizers in this second style, made from some lovely fabrics. Update on July 4, 2011: I'm no longer finding this Etsy store.
Update, January 2010: See even more purse organizers!
