I’m terrible at remembering to pack everything whenever I go on a trip. That means my two annual overnight outings are usually filled with a bit of pre-trip stress.
However, I’ve learned that if I can just grab a small bag of the things I usually end up forgetting, toiletry items, the stress levels go down dramatically. That’s why I put together a little toiletry grab bag!
The bag itself is an early attempt at sewing a reversible knot bag. It turned out nicely, though the scrap fabric wasn’t anything I’d really carry around with me. So, it was designated my grab bag.
Inside, are as follow:
- de-greasing facial wipes
Since one of our annual trips is for camping, the shampoo and conditioner don’t really get used, but those facial wipes are fantastic. I found them, and a lot of those other travel sized goodies, at Target.
Of course, if you’re flying without checking luggage, it would be a good idea to swap an opaque bag for a gallon zip-lock to get through security. The nice thing about travel sized toiletries is the fact they usually conform to TSA’s liquid guidelines.
I also included one of my reusable travel bottles in the picture. That particular bottle has some left over massage oil in it, but you can easily put shampoo, conditioner or facial cleanser in it, and save yourself a trip to the store.
This little bag is really just for the essentials, but there’s no reason why you can’t apply the same idea to makeup or other hygiene products. There are also fold up brushes which would fit nicely, as well.
With this, I won’t forget to bring these things with me, unless I forget the bag itself. If you do much traveling, putting one of these together is a great idea.
