Resistance to Getting a Hanging Toiletry Bag and Travel Packing Cubes

For over five years I’ve been eyeing out a hanging toiletry bag. I’ve shown several to my husband before each trip, spending way too much energy on the matter.  Yet every time I had to hit the buy button I resisted and resisted.

Why?

Honestly, the only reason I can think of is that I like to suffer. Self sabotage, even in areas such as traveling and self care, doesn’t stop. Obviously, I enjoy trudging around a million different baggies for all my toiletries only to realize that I left more than half of the important ones at home. Because traveling with two kids and having a million other things to deal with simply isn’t enough for me.

Well, I finally came to my senses. I decided to simplify my life in all aspects and do some serious upgrading (without the upgrade price) and got me an awesome Hanging Toiletry Bag.  Since I’m a huge fan of Fishers Finery for sleepwear and exercise clothing, I figured their travel accessories will be as high quality.

And to my absolute surprise they not only had the perfect hanging toiletry bag, but it was on a huge SALE.

Why I Am In Love with My Toiletry Bag

People, listen up!

If there is one product, and I mean just ONE product, you would consider buying for traveling packing ease it will be the Hanging Toiletry Bag!

After getting my bag I went on a solo trip (first time ever without my family). Even though I was in an exotic new location (Colombia) the one thing I kept on raving about to my husband on skype was about my toiletry bag. It has everything I need. And it’s so easy to work with.

It’s super spacious. Has compartments that can fit everything from your hair products to jewelry to even electronic chargers (yes, I had all my electronic cables in there as well).

It folds easily, no matter how stuffed you make it, and doesn’t take up too much room in the suitcase. Then you unravel it, and hang it up anywhere. It comes with a hanger already attached to it.

Since I can never just buy ONE product, Fishers Finery was having another awesome sale on Travel Packing Cubes.

I’ve had packing cubes before but they were made of plastic and not too pliable. If they weren’t full of stuff, the empty space in them wouldn’t bend and took up unnecessary room. So I decided to get their Travel Packing Cubes as well.

They are made of nylon with plenty of breathing room so your stuff doesn’t get musty. They come in different sizes fitting all that I needed in them and so much more.

I have to say, I’m not a big fan of packing and even more so unpacking. But with my new organizational bags, I love it! It doesn’t feel like work, but can be part of the fun experience which travel is all about.

  1. I love hanging toiletry bags too! For too long, like you, I was packing my toiletry in 3 and 4 little bags. A few years ago I started using a hanging toiletry bag and will not swap with anything else! So easy to use and everything on one place, finally! 🙂
