Just when you are getting ready for a trip is when to be most organized. Yes, there are Targets in every major city. But why spent time there when we are on vacation? Take time to make a list for what you need. Have a travel cosmetic bag ready all the time including beauty duplicates and get ready 3 days in advance, so that those last minute forget- me- nots get included in your stuff! If getting ready in advance is a challenge, get your suitcase out one week ahead of time and drop one category of items in each day. This way everything can be dropped in and then evaluate what you really need the day before you leave. Bon voyage and really enjoy the holiday!
