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.

This is a great idea. You find these at garage sales and thrift stores. You could add items and make cute gifts! Great idea!

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.

This is one of those simple but awesome ideas! Thanks!

* But, I would recommend you first turn your shower cap inside-out, because this way if the makeup leaks, it will leak on the outside of the cap & won't get on to your hair!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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.

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.

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.
