Traveling can be the highlight of your year, but it can quickly change into a nightmare when it comes to packing.
When packing for a trip, you typically don’t have a lot of extra space in your carry-on, so it’s important to make the most of the space you do have. By taking items that serve a dual purpose, you’ll cut down on the stress of packing and maybe even have a little room to spare.

Whether it’s a daily med, vitamins or even a bottle of generic aspirin, you’re using valuable carry-on space to accommodate those bottles. An easy space hack is to pick up a medication organizer that will hold all of the above in one nice, neat container. This will give you a lot more space and you won’t have to search for the right bottle among all of your other belongings.
Travel Toothbrush & Paste
Not only will you want to have fresh breath for the plane ride, but if your main bag of luggage doesn't make it to your destination, your first stop after a long plane ride won't be to the airport gift shop for an overpriced toothbrush.

Did you know you can use these things for about anything? Really. Anything. Whether you need to refresh your face after a long flight, remove makeup or even a quick hand wash, these are your go-to. If you’re in a pinch, you can also use a wet wipe in place of toilet paper, which really makes having them on hand worthwhile.
