Did you know that there are 8.8 million children (about 11 % of all children) who are not insured in the United States? It is this staggering, sad and scary statistic that gave me...
How to Stay Organized While Traveling
As an avid traveler, I am constantly searching for ways to make my travel experiences easier and much more organized. In fact, there have been hotels where I simply don't unpack. I leave everything in my suitcase because it is much more organized in there than in the hotel closet.
TownePlace Suites by Marriott® has changed all of that by making it their mission to give guests the tools to keep them feeling happy, put together and productive on longer stays. I love that! Further, they believe that having the space to organize and the tools to get things done makes for a happier traveler. For me this is especially true.
They have come up with a fabulous solution utilizing one of my favorite stores. TownePlace Suites® and The Container Store® have partnered to bring hotel guests the amazing elfa® closet system.
At TownePlace Suites® guests will be able to utilize the elfa® closet system from The Container Store® in one incredible custom designed closet. Each closet offers tons of storage options to help guests feel more organized while on the road. From multiple closet rods and ventilated shelves to hanging drawers, guests will find everything they need to feel more put together.
Currently 11 TownePlace Suites® hotels feature the elfa® closet, with more locations growing every month. http://www.marriott.com/towneplace-suites-hotels/closetenvy.mi
HOW TO STAY ORGANIZED WHILE TRAVELING
1. Find the right containers to keep everything in.
I love my travel items from The Container Store® so much that I use them at home as well. See that jewelry above? It stays so organized and easy to find because of the in.bag® Large Jewelry Organizer & in.bag® Earring Stays. I can see everything and get out only what I need without tangling everything up.
2. Make certain that you can see everything.
Out of sight, out of mind can be especially true when traveling. I love being able to see all of my cosmetics in one place which helps me keep it organized and I know what I have available. Nothing is worse than running out of something that I use everyday but that no longer happens with the Resort Hanging Organizer.
3. Keep it compliant.
A few months ago I was traveling and ran out of lotion. I bought a larger size because it was a much better deal. When I went through security at the airport, the lotion was confiscated because it was too large so it ended up not saving me any money at all. These 3 oz. GoToobs® are the perfect size to keep all of your toiletries.
4. Pack it all just right.
A large part of packing and staying organized is having the right luggage to do it in. This Eagle Creek™ Black 22″ Adventure 4-Wheeled Luggage is not only the perfect to fit into overhead bins, it is also a durable spinner bag with an expandable main compartment. You won't even need another bag.
