Hi all! I just made it home from the big weekend trip, and I hope to share some more pictures with you as soon as I get time to organize and edit them.
I want to share with you two new minimalist organizing tools I used that you might find helpful for any travel you are doing in the future. Both are up-cycled, and you could devise them out of things that you already own.
This first one takes a bit more effort: I actually sewed a shoe bag. I found the basic pattern here, although I altered the size a bit. (And I couldn’t tell you what that size was. I just measured a pair of shoes and tried to make it bigger than that.)
I used an old shirt from the Man for the outside of the bag, and the inside is a piece of red flannel that I had lying around. The ribbon was something my mom had. Voila! Free and useful travel item!
This second item was even easier to put together. I actually saw this travel hack on another blog a few months ago and had to give it a try. (If it was your blog, let me know! I will add the link.)
That is a glasses case that I used to carry my jewelry. This might get dicey if you have a lot of fancy necklaces that you don’t want to get tangled up, but for what I was bringing, this was a perfect solution. Bonus: if you have big glasses like I do, then you probably have a big glasses case, too.
So there you go. Think about trying these two organizing tools for your next trip.
Do you have any other travel organizing tips to share? I would love to hear them.
