Organized Packing Tips

It seems to be the time of year that many of us are taking trips around the state, country or world. (or maybe an expected trip across town because you are without power for a few days)

The most important that helps me pack is to keep a bag of “toiletries” packed at all times.

1 – Figure out all the things that you use on a daily basis.

Example: Shampoo, Conditions, Shower Gel, Shower Sponge, Body Lotion, Deodorant, Toothbrush, Toothpaste, Dental Floss, Razor, Hair Spray, Facial Cleanser, Moisturizer, Sunscreen, Brush, Comb, etc. (this list is personal for every person)

2 – Gather all these items in travel size (3oz or smaller)

* Last time I was in the Airport I some girl throwing away a liter of shampoo and a liter of conditioner because she had them in her carry-on bag. I had three thoughts 1- doesn’t she now there is a size restriction, 2 -what did that cost to throw away, 3 – Why would you want to carry something that heavy that takes up that much space in your bag. (poor planning)

3 – Find a bag or divided case of some sort that is just big enough to contain the items on your list.

4 – When something runs out, replace it the next time you go to the store and pack in to bag.

Once your bag is good to go – you no longer if think about it each time you take a trip of any kind. You also won’t have to wait until your are finished showering, doing your hair, shaving, etc before zipping up your suitcase.
