Packing Tips: For the Adults Part 1
Hey Everyone! Are you getting ready for a trip? Today I'm going to share how I stay sane while on vacation by posting some packing tips I'm loving right now.
Josh and I both have duffel bags that zip into themselves. It's totally awesome for when you need to put the bags away! The one part I don't like about them is that there are no compartments except for the one section on the side that I put our hypoallergenic soaps, shampoos, and conditioners. We have really sensitive skin. I watched one of my favorite vlogs on Youtube "Do It on a Dime" and got the tip to use bags for inside. One type of bag she suggested was bags that lotions and things come in that have a zipper and are pretty sturdy. Mine are the bags that my kids toddler bedding came in.
Another suggestion by Do It on a Dime was to use these bags you can get at the dollar store.
I'm using some of them and they're not too bad. The plastic is a bit flimsy, but not too bad. You just need to be careful with them. They're 12inches by 18 inches, so they give you quite a bit of space. Here it is full of some clothes.
Another option is to use large ziploc bags. This one I got from work, but you can get them from the dollar store too!
Don't forget about your labeling! I used my Epson Labelworks Label Maker, suggest by the wonderful Jen at I Heart Organizing! I used black on clear tape and made my labels for each bag so that if there was any question of what was in the bag I would know.
Wednesday I'll show you my favorite toiletries bag. It's really awesome. I'll show you why!
