Weather you're heading to a cottage, traveling for work, or planning a night away, packing and unpacking bags can get tiring. Here is an organizing tip to save a bit of time and maybe some frustration, ready-to-go toiletry bags. Normally I would not encourage buying duplicates but this is an exception to the rule for frequent travellers. Having a ready-to-go toiletry bag is so convenient and easy to do.
1. Before you choose a bag gather the things that are going in it. That way you can see what size of bag you need first. (This is an organizing practice Put To Order always uses.) Your ready-to-go toiletry bag might include things like: toothbrush, travel size (ts) toothpaste, ts floss, ts hairbrush, ts shampoo & conditioner, ts deodorant, ts shaving cream, disposable razor, ts moisturizer, ts sunscreen, ts contact solution and case, spare pair of glasses, and a hair elastic. Travel size toiletries can be purchased at most grocery stores and pharmacies. Note: Keeping your makeup in a separate bag allows you to easily pack it when you want it or leave it at home when you're letting your natural beauty shine.
2. Once you've gathered your items look to see if you already own a bag that will work. (Another Put To Order practice, see what you already have before you buy.) Keep in mind toiletry bags can sometimes get a bit wet so wipeable bags are practical.
3. Fill up your bag and you're good to go.
Safe and happy travels :)
