I have found out that it is very helpful to have one of those shoe holders that hqang on the back of your door. When you come across something that you may need like suntan lotion, shampoo, bandaids, ect.. you can just put items in pockets and they will be close on hand when you get ready to pack.

I'll do you one better. LL Bean has this great tote. I have the family-sized one, i put ALL my daily essentials for the entire family in this tote. It has tons of storage space,you can cram it full of stuff. its about a 12"x12" cube when closed. It has a shoulder strap.

Hi DirtDobber,

Look for a shoe holder that has a hanger on top so you can hang it in the closet. I bought one with "over the door" metal hangers and it wouldn't fit "over the door"! The hangers were too thick! I made it work in the closet, but it wasn't easy .

Thanks so much for the tip, Lisa! I just ordered one of these from LL Bean.

I LOVE this web site and the helpful, sharing people who frequent it!
