I love to organize and I have been doing it professionally for years. I think it stems from all those little containers my mom got me to put all my barbie shoes in or maybe it was because my mom was so organized that I just thought thats how things were done? who knows, but I love love love to organize.
When you are leaving on a trip even if it only a couple times a year, its nice to just have everything ready to grab and go. I don’t have a lot of space in my closets so I use all the space next to the ceiling to store things I wont need every day.
Fist I have a bin for all of our families toiletries each boy has their own bag and its filled with all the things they are going to need for trips, scout camp outs (like they every brush their teeth there!!), and sleepovers. This is mine.
I like to put all the bags into a clear bin so that I can see what is in side. Its not as clean and pretty as opaque containers but things like this that are behind closed doors are easier to see and grab when you need them
Inside my box with each persons bag I have bags in my bag. I know is that over kill? But it keeps everything in its place and I can always see when I need to get a new little sample or travel sized toothpaste.
Make your life as organized as possible and it will save you so much time looking and shopping for for things. It’s just a little thing but it’s saved me lots of times before trips with one less thing to worry about. It’s more fun to pack your out fits right?
I like to put my almost used up makeup in this travel bag because I know its the right colors I wear every day and if it gets lost stolen or broken I wont be without my makeup when I get home. It has happened to me twice I know I have the worst luck when I travel, now I’m overly carful.
Even though I don’t use clips in my hair normally I bring everything I might need ever just in case, a headband and washcloths are also a must!
