So, y’all already know that RancherMan & I took a little road trip recently to central Texas. We were there to enjoy the 2-day Mother Earth News Fair.
It’s the first time we’ve ever been able to attend their fair. 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, both of whom were mighty puzzled by my smugness over my find. LOL
Using A Repurposed Pill Box
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 scan for the item I’m after. Then I flip open the lid of the compartment I want to retrieve it.
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!
