Quick Tip: Organized Trinkets for Travel

This is a quick travel tip for storing small items like costume jewelry earrings, rings, delicate chain necklaces, cuff links, and tie tacks.

Invest in a plastic pill organizer (think S,M,T,W,T,F,S,) from the drug store or pharmacy. The organizers vary in size from small to extra large, and in color, though the most common variety is clear plastic. The compartments keep personal trinkets separated so they don’t wind up in a jumbled, knotted mess in the bottom of a suitcase!

If you want to write on the compartments, the existing lettering can be rubbed off with a sponge and a bit of elbow grease. The days of the week can also be removed to have a clearer view of the contents.

At the end of a trip, a pill organizer is easy to empty and wipe clean. Plus, the organizers are affordable (usually $3-7, depending on size).

Happy Travels!
