Switch It By Nan! Review & Giveaway -- Contest Closed!

CONTEST CLOSED!









Switch It by Nan... Where Sassy Meets Functional!

Recently, Liz and I were blessed to receive a Purse Organizer from Switch It By Nan. We got the sleek and snazzy Red Python Medium Organizer. It is... stunning!



The see-through bag makes it so easy to find everything you need quickly and without emptying your belongings.

It is also very, very functional! The Medium-size Switch-it is 9.5" x 6.5" x 3" -- perfect for the over-sized handbag or tote!

It has two large outside pockets, two medium-size outside pockets and one smaller pocket (perfect for pens or even a lipstick or flash-drive!) plus an outside zippered pocket.

The inside is open with plenty of room for a brush, small wallet, PDA, etc.
Also included is a solid wristlet with a zippered closure. The inside is lined with a luxurious, scrumtious satina. Very sexy. :)


I stole used the organizer first. I have a HUGE black Nightingale handbag that has only three inside pockets. Everything gets lost in there... so the Switch It By Nan is perfect for me!



I also love the fact that when I'm ready to switch to a different handbag, I don't have to go through the time-consuming hassle of switching out 20 different items.

The Switch It has it all in one convenient place and I just move it from one bag to another! Nothing gets left behind or dropped.

Ah, that brings me to another fine point: Nothing gets dropped on the floor... nothing gets dirty! I haven't had my sunglasses or reading glasses fall out... no scratches. My loose change stays firmly zippered in the bag. Oh, bliss!

And my hairbrush... it's clean. Not sogged down with the dust that can accumulate in the bottom of a handbag! Love it!

Liz, on the other hand, loves it as a stand alone bag. She literally crammed that organizer full of make-up, phone, brush, keys, pens -- you name it, the kid had it in there. Best of all, though, she could SEE it all and didn't have to dig through everything to put her hands on what she needed.

For Parents / Employers:
Many schools / businesses have rather strict policies about students / employees and see-through bags / back-packs. The Switch It is absolutely perfect for these policies! Everything can be clearly seen by Teachers / Employers and should be acceptable for any function or job.



It's not only convenient -- the Switch It is a time-saver! I hate to have to empty my purse to find what I want and I hate wasting my precious time to do so!

Well, there's no more of that!

So, who's behind this sassy organizer?

From the Website:

Switch It By Nan was an idea inspired by designer, Nan Holloway, to simplify the lives of “women on the go.” Nan designed the Switch It organizer to keep handbags organized and to make switching handbags simple. Just lift and switch to change your style!

Nan’s unique Switch It organizer is clear and translucent, with multiple pockets for storing essentials and makeup. The original Switch It was designed as a handbag organizer, but it’s use has evolved. Women are now using the Switch It as a makeup caddy, a travel bag organizer, a golf caddy, a car caddy, a diaper bag organizer, and as gift giving baskets. The uses are endless!

Nan’s main goal when designing her line was to create an organizer that is both functional and stylish. Not only do the organizers work well inside of a handbag, but many women love carrying the organizer as a separate handbag by itself!


The Switch It By Nan comes in three convenient sizes:
Small (8.5" x 5" x 3"), Medium (9.5" x 6.5" x 3"), and Large (11" x 8" x 4"). There is a size for every handbag and every purpose.

But that's not all, Switch It also offers some absolutely gorgeous Handbags as well! (I have my eye on the Sassy Girl Pink Python!)
