Traveling season will soon be among us! I thought I would share some of my favorite traveling tips for saving space and being organized on the go. Let’s get started:
Tip #1: Storing Hair Ties
Hair ties somehow end up scattered across everything… hotels, beds, luggage, so to have this hair tie tip is truly a life saver to me! Simply use a carabiner to keep missing hair ties at bay.
Tip #2: Storing Your Necklace
Once again I have dealt with tangled necklaces and trying to undo knots on necklaces a lot. Sometimes I would even end up ruining a necklace cause the knot was so large and so very tight! This simple hack is a lifesaver. All you need is a drinking straw. Thread one side of your necklace chain through the tube of the straw, and once through clasp the necklace ends together. This creates no slack on the chain to get tangled and potentially create a knot.
Tip #3: Using Ziploc Bags to Organize Clothing
This hack is great for packing little kids luggage, as well as summer luggage. I particularly love this tip for camping, because I won’t get my dirty clothes and my clean clothes mixed even if I store them in the same bag. My clothes aren’t damp, and they are perfectly organized so each day I don’t have to create an outfit or look for clothes to match. It’s already there and ready! All you need to do is take a large plastic bag and roll each days clothing into it. Once this is done, squeeze, squeeze, squeeze the bag letting all the air out and quickly zip it. This maximizes space too!
Tip #4: Store Loose Cords
Oh no. Oh no. No, no, no!! Your phone is on 1%! You rummage through your bag to find your phone charger wrapped around three different things. Whilst untangling the mess, your phone dies. OR: oh no. No, no, no!! You reach into your bag. Quickly grabbing the glasses case, opening it to find your cord, plug in your phone and you are saved. Which one would you rather live? I’m thinking the second example. Keep your charging cords tidy by plopping them in a sunglasses case! This keeps the cords tangle free and easy access for all of your low battery catastrophes.
Tip #5: Storing Earrings
Lost earrings are a recurring trouble that I often deal with but not in my travels!! With this easy hack you simply use a button! Take any button with two holes and put your earring hook or post through. They stay together and you can use giant buttons so they don’t get lost in the bottom of a bag. I love this hack.
Thanks for reading my top five traveling tips and I hope these help you keep organized next vacation. Please like and comment on this post if you enjoyed it or have any questions!
