1. Carry On!
I am going to make a serious effort to only carry on luggage for short trips from here on out. Not only is it such a pain to check(and pay) for luggage, but this way you know all of your goods are with you from departure to arrival and back again. I would love any of these adorable carry on bags!
2. Label Everything & Use Clear Bags
My Bestie had little Ziploc bags with "liquids", "Shower" etc on them, She even had a clear bigger bag labeled "dirty" to minimize laundry efforts when she got home. The Container Store has perfect clear zipper "sweater bags", to add your own label to with a sticky label or even a waterproof sticker. I found these at Cherry Hill Designs and thought they would be perfect for adding to travel size toiletry cases.

3. Unpack and Repack
There just isn't anyway around the fact that your items will be jumbled up, reaching in and out of your suitcase while on your trip. So set aside some time before you are set to leave to re-fold things, organize clean/dirty and make sure you have all of your belongings. It will save you time and effort when returning home!
Since I am going to Vegas next week (YAY!) I am going to really try to get all of my little ducks in a row and have the most organized trip ever:)
Hope you all are having a great day!
