I have all four of the bags pictured above and I use them on every trip I go on. They’re so helpful in keeping things organized and protected. I’ve never actually stored a “wet” swimsuit in the bikini bag, but I use it just to keep my swimsuits all in one place and in the winter I use it for bras.

I randomly found the bags at a T.J. Maxx Home store about two years ago. Not looking for them of course. At the time, I also found two matching shoe bags. I tried to buy more since, but haven’t been able to find any. I’ve seen similar ones, but they aren’t as cute and are definitely not as good of quality, and they cost twice as much. Grrrrrr!

The closest match I could find was on Etsy, where a couple of sellers will actually custom make them for you and embroider your name on them. These are far cheaper than ones I’ve seen and way cuter too.  See for yourself.

I love these shoe bags cause I’m kind of a germ-a-phob. The idea of the soles of my shoes touching my clean clothes really grosses me out. The only problem with them is I sometimes forget which shoes I’ve packed in which bag, so I end up having to dig through my suitcase and open all of them. If I’m really on top of things, sometimes I’ll stick white labels on them.

These clear shoe bags by Design GO are an obvious solution, but they’re not as pretty and that’s what we’re about here.

Yes, I sometimes choose fashion over function, but not when it comes to traveling with jewelry. I swear whenever I open my jewelry case after a flight, it looks like a crazy orgie took place. Every piece I own somehow manages to get tangled up into one clump, no matter how hard I try.

There’s nothing worse than spending precious vacation time untangling when I could  be doing something way more fun. That’s why I’m crushing over these new Knot-No-More sleeves I just found. Each necklace is locked into place in its very own sleeve eliminating the chance of any pieces getting frisky with each other.
