Raise your hand if you’ve ever arrived at your destination and realized you’ve forgotten some or all of your toiletries. Both my hands are in the air. I usually have my toiletry kit with me but many times, one or more items from it are missing. Why? It’s usually because I never got around to going to Target or CVS to replace the depleted items.
When you’re traveling, it can be inconvenient to stop at a store to pick up forgotten toiletries, especially if there isn’t a Target nearby. BTW: Is it just me or do you find it hilarious that the Target cashier always asks, “Did you find everything you were looking for?” I just stand there in a bit of a daze and say, “Actually, I wasn’t looking for any of this stuff!” Going to Target for one thing is as difficult as having just one potato chip.
Anyhow, I digress. When you want to make sure you have all your toiletries, you should check out Travelbadger. TravelBadger recently sent me some of its pre-packed toiletry kits, which I didn’t expect to be too exciting—but sure enough, I was wrong. When the package arrived and my wife saw me taking them out, she exclaimed with a big smile, “Where did you get those cute and handy kits?” That’s when it dawned on me that these products would benefit not just novice travelers but expert travelers, as well.
Travelbadger offers multiple types of pre-packed kits that come in sturdy, reusable travel bags that are TSA-compliant. Bags are sorted into four categories:
There are four types of men’s kits, all at different price points.

Each category has so many choices.
After combing through the website (oh, by the way, they sell a men’s comb for $0.99) I realized I may never go to Target or CVS again to buy my toiletries. Thanks to TravelBadger, I won’t have to make any last-minute trips to the store or hope the hotel carries what I’m missing.
Travelbadger’s pre-packed toiletry kits have the perfect tagline: Easy. Peasy. Packing. It really is easy peasy packing with Travelbadger.
