So, y’all already know that RancherMan & I took a little road trip recently to central Texas to enjoy the 2-day Mother Earth News Fair. It’s the first time we’ve ever been able to attend and let me tell ya it was AWESOME! But while I was packing my bag in preparation for our trip I was reminded of something that I do to help keep my things organized inside my luggage. Check out this Homestead (travel) Hack – Oh man, you’re not gonna believe this!
Several years ago when RancherMan & I were in west Texas visiting relatives, we all went out garage-saleing together. (an activity we really enjoy, especially with these relatives!) Aaaaaaanyway I stumbled upon this obnoxiously large pill box with 7 compartments. It was being sold for the low-low price of just $0.10! So I snapped it up, knowing just what I would do with it. We won’t talk about the weird looks I got from my fam, who were both puzzled by my smugness over my find. LOL
When we got home I washed the pill box up and placed it in our bathroom vanity drawer to wait for our next travel date. The next time we planned a road trip and brought out the luggage & I fetched my obnoxiously-large pill box and got busy. I put a few pairs of earrings in a few of the compartments, some hair clips in another, an anklet in yet another and some hair ties in another. Since the compartments are semi-see through I can easily flip open the lid of the compartment I want to fetch the item I’m after. No fuss, no muss. (what IS muss anyway??)
So if you have small items like earrings & hair clips that always seem to get lost in your luggage, give this a try. It works superfantastical for me!
