As I prepare to embark on Seven Seas Voyager, I gratefully remember a "chance" meeting.
My life has always been full of coincidence and serendipity. Flying home after my first cruise contract, I found myself seated next to Edie Rodriguez. At the time she was the dynamic president of Crystal Cruises.
Best Travel Tip Ever (Really!)
We talked about a lifetime of travel and how to make it easier. She gave me the best travel tip ever.  She told me she never had to pack a makeup or toiletries bag. Instead, she purchased duplicates of everything.
Edie's Time Saving Tip

  1. Purchase two sets of your go-to, necessary, must have toiletries, makeup, medicines.
  2. Order travel bags. I found the bags pictured above on Amazon and order several at a time. One for toiletries, first aid, and sun products. The other for hair and makeup products. Many of you will probably only need one of these. They hold a lot and the compartments make it easy to organize everything.
  3.  As soon you arrive home from a trip, check and replace anything missing - from eyeliner to toothpaste to Q-tips (Hehhe. Get it? Q tips.).
  4. Store your travel bag away until your next trip.

Why Didn't I Think of That?
I remember thinking, "duh, why have I never done this!"  Two careers with full-time travel? Duh, duh, duh.  While it isn't inexpensive up front, it is a huge energy and time saver afterwards!
If, like me, "travel" is your middle name -- or a huge part of your life -- put this tip into play as soon as possible. You'll be so glad you did! And, thanks Edie, for this time saving tip!
Drop me a line on Facebook and share your best travel tip!
