It’s only when you come to pack for a short break that you realize just how much you need. Of course, you’ll need the essentials such as a toothbrush, toothpaste, and shampoo, but then you have to factor in bobbles, clips, make-up, moisturizer and a whole other range of products that you use every day. Here’s how you can take them all without having to find another suitcase for them.
Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, face scrub – the list could go on. But these often take up too much room, and if you’re traveling abroad there are certain limitations in place. Look for smaller bottles with holes at the top, perfect for fitting a lanyard too, which makes it easy to keep all shower essentials together. It’s also perfect for those who just want to take carry-on luggage on the plane.
If you’re a woman, you’re bound to have thousands of these little things hanging around whilst your boyfriend wonders where they all keep appearing from. It’s easy to lose hairpins, so try storing them in an empty Tic Tac case to keep them all in one place.
Do you go for a standard size or pay over the odds for a travel-size option? The answer is simple: keep hold of your travel-size tube and refill it to save space and money.
There’s nothing worse than opening your case to find your shampoo has exploded all over your clothes. To prevent this, use cling film or masking tape to cover the top – this will stop any leaks.
Whether you’re traveling overseas or to serviced apartments in Birmingham such as No.8 Waterloo Street apartments, most women would find it hard to narrow down their makeup choices. Rather than taking up the room with your full make-up bag, opt for something small like a glasses case to keep your essentials easy to grab.
Travelling with a razor can be a bit tricky. You don’t want to store it with things that could easily be cut and don’t want to blunt the razor by having it rub against the side of a toiletry bag. Instead, use a binder clip to cover the top to keep it and your other items safe.
