Summer is the perfect time to plan a road trip with your family. However, once you get everyone in the car, you quickly realize that their “stuff” is going to take up way too much room. But who wants to spend hours packing and re-packing?
- Rather than packing multiple pill bottles in your bag, grab a pill organizer from the dollar store and fill each compartment up with different types of medication or vitamins. Then use a sticker to label each type of medication on top of the pill organizer. Now you can toss this in your bag and you’ll be covered with any type of medication that you may need while you travel.
- Use contact cases for more than just your contacts! These handy little containers are easy to pack, are inexpensive, and can hold more items then just your much needed contacts. Small jewelry like earrings are the perfect size for contact cases and is a great jewelry case alternative. Also, you can pour in your liquid makeup like foundation and concealer into the contact case, and now you don’t have to carry the entire bottle while you travel.
- Re-purpose a sunglasses case to hold your power cords for all of your electronics or to hold your makeup like lipstick and mascara.
- Always roll your clothes. Skip the folding when it comes to your carry on and roll your clothes instead. You’ll be able to fit more clothes into your bag and can roll smaller clothes into heavier clothes like jeans and pants.
