Reader Travel Tip of the Day: Cosmetics Check

reader-travel-tip2Cosmetics Check
Each Friday, we’re featuring a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Mary Anne G. of Marlboro, NJ, who says:

“Before a trip I place my cosmetics in my travel cosmetic bag. Two days before the trip I start to use my cosmetics from that bag. If I forgot something I will realize it before I leave.”

An easy way to doublecheck your packing. Thanks, Mary Anne!

  1. I just started using this tip. I got so tired of forgetting things that I already have my cosmetics bag packed for a trip on Sunday and it’s only Friday! Oops… now that I think of it, I better go add some perfume. Thanks for all the wonderful tips. You help make traveling so carefree.

    So how do you remind yourself to put that cosmetics bag in the suitcase at the last minute if you need to use it the day of your trip because that is where all the important cosmetics are?
