Clutches and PursesEmpty the contents of your purse before it's stored. Crumbs can attract bugs, pens can leak and batteries might corrode. Not to mention the extra weight of a purse might wear out a handle when it's hung. (Many people now hang purses on individual hooks.)Purses: If you've got the space, display purses on a shelf with tissue paper stuffing. The paper will keep their shape and help them sit better.Clutches: They're best filed within the constraints of a shelf divider, open bin or drawer, since they're flat.
