Need interior pouches for a new bag - any suggestions?

Hi,

I just recently purchased a new bag - a Travelpro Platinum 6 City Tote. So far, I love the bag. It's quite roomy and has some pockets, but not as much as I need (or so I think).

What I'm looking for, ideally, are bags that contain things like gift cards, etc. If you've owned a Le Sportsac, you know that in some of the bags a small pouch comes inside of it. That's what I'm looking for - if something like that exists individually.

I'm also up for suggestions. Not only will I use this bag for travel, but also for daily use.

Thanks,
TR

Check out the Container Store. They carry mesh pouches in various sizes. I like the one that's about the size of a pencil case. I buy 6 at a time because I use them for all sorts of things, make-up, sewing supplies, pens, etc. The white are transparent so you can see what's inside them. The best part is that the size I like is about $3.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding the question - but sound like a cosmetics case? I have a set of 3 sizes that I love - they are clear, with a zipper.

Hi,

Thanks for the responses.

Debsnj: I looked online at the Container Store and found what I was looking for. Thanks for reminding me about them.

Suze: sorry for the confusion! The bag has a big interior and only 2 mesh "pockets." I need pouches to separate things. Cosmetic cases could work - I'll keep those in mind.

adamjohn03: thanks for the link! There are some nice looking ones on the page.

I wouldn't use them for every-day in my pocketbook, but for traveling in a large tote or duffle I just use ziplocks. Nothing packs better plus you can see everything you've got, and leakproof (which mesh doesn't provide).

Go to REI - they have some nice half-mesh bags with zippers and handles of different sizes. I use them for everything.
