Handy tip for traveling

I read a tip this summer that I immediately put into practice. I bought a pop-up hamper which I keep in our suitcase. When we are away from home, I set it up in a corner and put all of our dirty clothes in it. It works beautifully.

When we're getting ready to leave, I put the dirty clothes in the large part of the suitcase and leftover clean clothes (I always overpack on purpose) in the smaller part. When we get back home, I sort all the dirty clothes into their respective hampers (darks, lights, white, Robert's work clothes, and Gracie's clothes), and put the clean clothes away. It's all done in less than 10 minutes, and the suitcase is ready to be stored again.

Pin It!


  1. Why did I not think about this? That is such a smart idea.

  2. What a wonderful tip, Ava! Thank you so much for sharing it!
