It’s time to round up the crumpled receipts, tangled headphones and spilled mints currently taking up residence at the bottom of your bag. Before simply tossing your on-the-go essentials from one bag to the next, consider an organized approach to your seasonal swap. Take everything you’ve been carrying since the start of last season out and arrange piles based on which items are everyday necessities, extras and just the bits and bobbles that somehow made their way inside your bag.
After decluttering, disposing of any trash and returning excess pens and lip balms back to their rightful homes, you can start to repack your bag based on what you need to make it through the day. Help keep smaller items like keys from disappearing at the bottom of your bag with our Large Coin Pouch.
Can’t wait for that soft buttery texture of worn-in leather? A leather conditioner used to nourish and restore shine and softness can help improve the feel of your OM. We recommend the Osgoode Marley Leather Conditioner available on our website. To apply, use a dry cloth and apply a thin coat in small, circular motions. Over time, leather conditioner will help diminish scratches and stains while giving your bag a healthy glow. Have a stain that needs removing?

To maintain the shape of your bag, consider stuffing it with excess tissue or wrapping paper leftover from the holiday season. Use a dust bag or cotton pillowcase to store your bag. Leather needs to breath and even the slightest bit of moisture can cause mold or mildew. This method of storage will provide your bag the necessary fresh air it needs in order to maintain proper shape and the freshness.
