We are all eager to travel to the places we treasure and embark on new adventures. Having had LOTS of time to plan (way too much!) and contemplate where we want to go, we have also realized that some of the simplicity we have enjoyed during the last months will be an essential part of our new "normal."
In order to be “good to go” the moment you can escape, consider how you can simplify your packing routine. One of the easiest things to organize and the most utilized item on any trip is your toiletry bag. It often gets the least love, but provides the most benefit and comfort wherever you go. It’s time to give your products and travel bag some long overdue love!
The good news – traveling light, efficiently and organized is easily achievable. Quality options exist that allow you to carry your toiletries and items securely in more sustainable containers that can be used for years. The result of your efforts to travel with less will have a critical and positive impact on the earth over your travel lifetime. Quality, compact and organized travel storage is officially a thing!
A few tips to help you strategize and up your travel game:
Have a dedicated system – this makes packing easier because your products and things are at your fingertips. Once you determine the realistic and optimal amounts of the products you need, you truly can travel with less.
Less is enough - most facial products, cleaners, creams and hair products come in containers that are usually three to six ounces and last for weeks or months. Luxury brands are often in the one and a half to four ounces range. Most people don't need to use larger bottles or containers for these types of products. Test out your travel containers at home to confirm how many days your supply of products last.
Coordinated containers - provide spaces for all your items, making it easy to use and organize your things quickly. Pills, vitamins, jewelry and other items tucked in random places, you can’t find when you really need them, is no longer an issue or an effort.
Less to pack - less product, less bulk ultimately results in fewer or smaller bags providing the dual savings of physical effort and the cost to check bags.
The little improvements in your travel routine and the quality of the containers you use (and re-use!) make your travels easier and reduce the overall impact on the planet. Reap the benefits of more time and energy for the most enjoyable, productive travel with all the things you want!
