14 Traveling Tips & Tricks

Are you planning a trip in the near future? 
I've got you covered with these amazing travel tips and tricks to keep your sanity.

Thread your necklaces through plastic drinking straws to avoid tangles. Cut the straws to a desired length for bracelets and anklets. source

When packing toiletries, unscrew the lids and cover each opening with a small piece of plastic wrap and then screw the lids back on. source

Make your own flat iron/ curling iron holder. Fold a pot holder in half and sew along the edge.
Now you can pack it even while it is hot. source

Save on space by transferring products like foundation and liquid blush into a contact lens case. source

Pack your shoes inside shower caps to keep dirt from getting on your clothes.  source

Protect your camera by storing it in a hard plastic saod case. source

Use an empty tic tac container to store items such as bobby pins, toothpicks, or place a needle, some thread and a few buttons inside for a mini sewing kit. source

Make your own single use antibiotic packs by squeezing the product into plastic straws and melt the ends closed with a lighter. source

Use buttons to keep matching earrings together and keep them from getting lost in the corner creases of your bag. source

If your heading to the beach don't forget to pack some baby powder. Pour a small amount onto your hands then rub it on your skin to remove sand. source

Use a plastic cereal dispencer as a trash can fro your car. source

Turn a pill container into a portable spice kit. source

Place cotton balls and cotton pads inside your makeup containers to keep them secure so that they don't break. source

Don't forget about your house plants while you are away. Make your own automatic watering system by filling a vase with water. Using a 1/4" nylon cord place one end in the vase touching the bottom. Place the other end into the soil of your potted plant about 3 inches deep. The nylon will wick the water from the vase and water your plant as needed. source

Don't forget to pin this to reference later!

  6. it's a good idea to pack a electric power board also, if you are traveling overseas, as a power adapter will only let you use one thing at a time, where as if you plug the power board into the adapter you can use 3 or four appliances (charge phone/computer/camera and use a hair dryer/electric shaver etc. ) my sister told me this :)
