What are your favorite toiletry organizers for travel, ladies? I must admit I don’t have a great system — I have a huge toiletry bag (bought at a discount store for less than $5) that I throw everything into and when I get to my destination I inevitably dump everything on the counter (shower stuff, makeup, first aid and all!) and start putting things back in once I realize I will no longer need it right this instant. (I should note that I have never personally liked hanging toiletry organizers.) My system works for me but I always have that moment of panic when we leave: have I just lost my favorite makeup brush or pot o’ makeup?
Cut to a few months ago, when I realized that my husband, when traveling for work, was just throwing his toiletries into a plastic shopping bag. After some research I realized a “dopp kit” was what I was looking for, and I checked Amazon to see what they had in the budget realm. We ordered this bag — and then ordered it again for my kids (the Ziploc for toothpaste and toothbrushes was making me sad)– and now honestly I’m considering getting a third one for myself for my various toiletries when I travel. It’s a lightweight nylon bag that doesn’t have a ton of shape by itself, which I don’t mind. There are a zillion, large pockets and mesh side walls — perfect for keeping, say, your shower stuff/makeup/first aid toiletries separated. Because it opens horizontally you don’t actually have to dump stuff on the counter to find it; you can just open it wide and look inside. Oh yes: and it’s $15. Gonex Toiletry Organizer Red
