The solutions below make my favorites list as they make packing and traveling so much easier!
Luggage Packing Cubes – I used to meticulously pack my family’s clothing in a particular order to avoid the inevitable scrounging around for that needed item. How well do you think that strategy worked? A tornado would have done less damage than my kids (and, dare I mention, my spouse). With luggage packing cubes, I can organize by traveler and category, and keep the laundry separate too. I typically use one whole set per large luggage.
Toiletry Organizer – Keeping toiletries together helps you and your travel companions find needed items with less effort. I hate digging through luggage pockets trying to remember which item I placed where. If you are carrying liquids, look for toiletry organizers that are lined with plastic to prevent spills. For the ladies out there, I highly recommend having a separate organizer for your make-up!
- Electronic Accessories Organizer – A sturdy, cushioned organizer can help secure all cable wires and protect delicate electronics. In a pinch, a Ziploc bag can come in handy. However, cables and earphone wires will still get tangled up and the flimsy plastic doesn’t prevent items from getting banged around.
