PEVA 8-Pocket Purse File


Product Information

Hang our PEVA 8-Pocket Purse File on your closet rod to keep bags organized and easily accessible. It can hold eight large handbags or multiple smaller bags. The clarity of the material helps you find the bag you're looking for. This product is made from PEVA (polyethylene vinyl acetate,) a non-chlorinated vinyl. Because it is chlorine-free, this material is considered better for the environment than PVC (polyvinyl chloride).

  • Made from heavy-gauge clear PEVA

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed! I have been looking for a handbag organizer for long time now. I went to several stores including specialty stores. I was not able to find what I had in mind until I went to the Container store to look for a plate cover for use in the microwave which, by the way, I found so I bought three. I asked the store assistant if they carried some sort of handbag organizer she led me to the perfect organizer. It holds about eight purses of all sizes. I simply love it. I purchased two and I am going back to get two more with a friend who has also been looking for an organizer to hold her handbags. We are two happy campers!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Purse-onal Canopy I have a very small closet in a New England-style home. Keeping things orderly is very difficult. This 8-pocket handbag holder is amazing! It's flexible, durable and keeps my handbags in great shape!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must for Closets Being a Prof. Home Organizer in Dallas I have found this product helpful to store a variety of items in addition to purses. I like visibility for storage in most spaces. This hangs vertically so takes up minimal space especially in tight closets. The complimentary shoe organizer works equally as well. Last, the price is very affordable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like, not Love I like this, but I'm not in love with it. It seemed a little clunky to me, but it did work for the purpose. Would also work for items like stuffed animals.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good organizer, but slots too small I love that this is made of recycled material. It's a great way to organize and see all your handbags, but the slots are too small. When I try to put two small clutches in one slot, one slides out the back. But it's good for the larger handbags. It's better than the big box I had them in that I had to tear through to find the right purse.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Small Closet - Average amount of purses The "see-through" vinyl is not as clear as is pictured on the web-site, but it really helped. I purchased this product along with two other purse organizers and chose to use all three.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves space and time! I have had this purse holder for a few years now and it has held up 4 moves!! It's the easiest way to store handbags, large and small. You can see what you are looking for and it doesn't take up too much space in your closet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for organization! I have had this for about a year now, and I really like it! It helps keep all of the purses off of the floor and out of the way. I believe mine was a 12 pocket, but it is this design. The only issue I had is the plastic tears if, for instance, a small child was going to be repeatedly getting your purses down for their own personal use:). They have some with a thicker material that I'm looking into, but all in all it's great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy I would definitely recommend this to a friend. The pockets were good enough size to hold any size bag from a clutch to a big bag for a laptop. I also store space hangers in the pockets that won't fit in my closet. Hangs very close to the door so I can hang coats and such on my over-the-door-hanger this doesn't get in the way at all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what I expected I really love this organizer. It holds all my medium sized bags perfectly and even some larger ones that I don't mind folding. Very easy to see and reach everything. So glad I bought it, it's really a steal for $10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Just for Purses! I bought one of these with the intentions of putting my purses in. However, I had just had a major cleaning of my closet and sold most of my bags that I didn't use. So then I thought, "hey, I can put other things in!" and so it holds baseball hats, extra tank tops, etc. I would highly recommend these for someone who wants to get organized.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little product I love this thing. I had all my bags laying around on top in the closet and they were a mess. I put them all in to this handy file and my problems went away. I can fit more than one bag in to the pouch, especially if they are foldable, then I can fit three bags in to one. It's an excellent tool for organizing bags. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My "go to" handbag organizer I have recommended this to almost every single one of my organizing clients and they all love it! It takes up so much less room in a closet than you would expect it to, and can also be used in a front hall closet for storing beach towels, back packs, etc. Purses and other items are clearly visible and can be easily accessed. One of my favorite Container Store items.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for handbags and clutches! Be careful though because it is longer than you might expect; make sure that you measure your closet rod to floor length. I wish it had more of a protective quality though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gets the job done This products is ok. It gets the job done, which is to get the handbags off my floor. It's not like a wow product though. The "pockets" are more sleeves than pockets - both sides are open so you just sort or slip the bags in. I was expecting pockets so you could drop the bags in. It is definitely only for medium to large bags. Small clutches and evening bags would probably fall out. Overall, I'm happy with it though, and the price is good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! Attractive and saves space. Like the fact my purses can breathe in this; I found 2 leather purses were dried out (destroyed) from being sealed in Zip bags.
Date published: 2010-05-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size! This file holds 8 large bags in an organized, easy to see storage system. So much easier than reaching up high for boxes to find the right one. And because they are visible, you are less likely to forget what you have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purse Organizer Saved my Sanity Best thing I have purchased in ages.......holds more purses than it says, all in one spot, clearly visible.......what a lifesaver......freed up tons of space in my closet & saved my sanity so I can now find a purse in a flash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect way to organize purses! I saw a similar product in this months issue of Real Simple and immediately noted that I HAD to get it as my purses were beginning to take over my closet! I was excited when I found it at the Container Store, and immediately put it to use. It is working great so far, and holds much larger purses than I originally thought it would. Although one suggestion I'd make is to add a pouch on top (with closed sides but open on top) to hold smaller clutch purses as I think they are more likely to fall out of the large pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent purchase for purse storage I purchased the 8-pocket vinyl handbag file because I had already tried to store my purses in clear plastic boxes in my closet. I found it difficult to keep getting the box down from the self every time I wanted to change my purse. It hangs from the closet rod which makes it easier to change my purse because they are at arms reach. I can see which purse I need. It keeps my purses dust free and easily accessible. I can hang two side by side to add to my collection.
