Organized Traveler

imageI’m a sucker for anything to make packing and my travel experience as stress free as possible. Therefore, I’m always on the look out for items to use when traveling. I love patterns and items that stand out, so it’s easy to immediately identify the contents within.

I purchased an accessory and flat iron all-in-one organizer to eliminate the need for two separate organizers. The flat iron portion is heat resistant and zips to keep my flat iron and cord nice and neat.  Depending on the amount of accessories I pack, I sometimes place my jewelry in ziplock bags inside the zippered compartments to keep things tangle free and to easily access “a look.” After everything is packed, I simply fold the trifold organizer and snap the fastener. It also had a carrying handle.


Shoe bags also are nice touch when packing shoes. I use a large bag that holds 2-3 pairs of shoes. The shoes bags keep my shoes from being scratched and transferring residue from the bottom of my shoes to items packed in my suitcase.

One item I truly love is a small vintage pill case that I purchased at a small boutique store, Francesca’s Collections. It has such a unique look, it doesn’t scream “PILL CASE.” This is handy dandy container is a nice reminder to take my vitamins.

Some great places to find items to organizes when traveling include TJ Maxx, Steinmart, Marshall’s, HomeGoods, and boutique stores.
