Turn an old glasses case that has been sitting in the back of that drawer into a great little manicure kit for traveling. It will even hold a miniature polish, just make sure the top is secure before putting the kit into your luggage or purse.

When traveling, I put my makeup in a shower cap when I went into the bathroom. Found I like it so much better than my makeup bags. Opens wide and you can easily see where everything is.

I've found that it is best to keep a bag of travel supplies together all the time. I fill small bottles with my preferred shampoo and conditioner and I purchase deodorant on sale or the travel size deodorant. I also put make-up that I do not use as often in my bag and some hair ties. My bag also includes a small brush and travel tooth brush. It saves me time in packing if I already have this ready.

I have a soft sided "train case" for cosmetics and toiletries, the classic design with a zipper all around the top and a handle in the middle of the top of the case. When traveling, the contents would all shift, and upon arrival at my hotel I would spend time reorganizing and putting bottles upright, etc. until I came upon an inexpensive solution.

After an unsuccessful search of the Internet for some sort of insert to keep my bottles and mini spray cans upright, I ended up buying 6 soft sided "cozies" or soda/beer can holders made of thick neoprene. They are available in many craft stores, and I got mine for .50 each. They fit in my train case very well, and my cans and bottles are no longer rolling around. You might need more or less cozies, depending on the size of your case. They also protect against breakage, as they provide padding.

If you're known to often just take off for a few days at the last minute but are not organized, this is a really cool bag to have on hand ready to go. Has all the basics. Beats shuffling around your things to put this all together at the last minute. Keep it in your travel bag and all you'll have to do is pack some clothes!

If you don't have samples of shampoo, lotion and body wash on hand, consider filling up film cannisters or small containers found at the dollar store with what you have at home. I usually collect all kinds of samples in advance to put kits like this together.

If you are going on a plane, consider storing these items in a ziplock bag so you can carry it on board. Check international/national regulations for liquid restrictions.

You can always add sunblock or other relevant items to you. I like to carry a little powdered laundry detergent so I can wash clothes in the sink when I travel.

Other items you could add: Anti Bacterial Hand Sanitizer, Sunblock, Powdered Laundry Detergent, Birth Control (or similar), Hair Elastics or clips, Band Aids, disposable pair of underwear, mini hear spray or gel.

HAPPY TRAVELS!

I stock up on samples and put them in a little bag so that when I travel, I can use them up. They are the perfect size and it saves me money. By Lynda

Packing for a holiday? Use an inflatable arm-band to transport delicate items like perfume bottles or when you are bringing home some vino in your suitcase!

When you travel, have all your toiletries and pharmaceuticals packed the day before. Then the night before and the morning of the trip only use the things that you have packed, if anything is missing you will know before your trip.

I got tired of having to worry if I had enough "girl stuff" packed when I had to go somewhere, and I wanted to keep my occasional need for "girl stuff" private. So, I purchased a small makeup bag and filled it with travel O.B. brand and travel liners.

To avoid forgetting something essential for your trip, pack your toiletries and makeup in a makeup case a couple days ahead of your departure. Use your packed items daily up until the time you leave.
