Everyone has secret tricks they use when packing and traveling, and I think the best part is that it doesn’t always have to cost a lot of money.
In fact, some of my favorite travel hacks involve secret uses for items I use every day.
So, this week I’m going to share some ways that your eyewear can help you on the road…other than the obvious use of helping you to see.
You download a movie on your phone to watch on the plane…great planning. But what you didn’t plan on was holding it in your hands the entire time. To prevent fatigue, use your sunglasses to prop up your smartphone. You’ll look like a genius, and your arm won’t get tired!
2. Contact case
If you’re a contact wearer, you probably have a bunch of these contact cases lying around. You get them a every time you buy a bottle of solution. But they can also be used to hold a small amount of cream. For instance, if you have really expensive eye cream that’s in a big bottle, you can put a small amount in your contact case for a short trip. You can also do the same thing with foundation or gels.
Added bonus: These cases are also a great place to carry small items that easily get lost — like earrings.
3. Glasses case
When I’m packing, I always throw my brush, comb, and toothbrush in my toiletry bag, but all of the small stuff always gets lost in the shuffle. That’s why I’ve started using my extra glasses case as a smaller vanity kit. I put in small things like cotton balls, Q-tips, hair ties, bobby pins, and even a small sewing kit. Now, they easily accessible AND organized!
