Packing your suitcase for a trip (in half the time)

This post was sponsored by Dramamine Motion Sickness Relief as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received compensation as a thank you for my review.

I love getting away for vacation, visiting family, or even just a long weekend.  Packing, I don’t love.  My husbands packs his bag in 5 minutes and he’s done.  I do all the wash and pack for my three kids and myself.  There are many times that I have forgotten my shirts or socks and had to buy things while I was away.  I have so much to remember and seem to always let something get by me and found a great way to speed up the packing and helps my forgetfulness.

I always keep my toiletries packed.  It’s that simple.  I have a great bag and it’s always ready to go and never have to worry about packing it because it’s already packed.

Packing your Suitcase

Packing your suitcase for a trip (in half the time)

  • toothbrushes
  • toothpaste
  • brush and comb
  • face wash
  • soap
  • cotton swabs
  • contact solution
  • extra contacts
  • deodorant
  • fingernail clippers and file
  • clear nail polish
  • extra hair ties
  • razor
  • tweezers
  • moisturizer
  • makeup (eyeliner, mascara, lip gloss)
  • shampoo and conditioner samples-  These are so small and great for emergencies.
  • medicine- allergy, ibuprofen, and Dramamine®

It took a few trips to get everything I needed in there, but it saves me so much time.  I know I don’t have to worry about forgetting any of that stuff.  I can just grab it and go.  The only thing I have to grab is my shampoo, conditioner, and lotion.

I may not need all these things for every trip, but it’s sure nice to have it when I do need it.  I get the worst motion sickness on boats, any kind of boat on any kind of water and even got sick last time I went snorkeling.  Having Dramamine® Non-Drowsy Naturals in my toiletries bag is perfect.  It’s there if something comes up while I’m away.  It contains the ginger dosage required to treat motion sickness.  Here’s a great coupon so you can keep an extra in your bag.
