I love when travelers use a bit of ingenuity when reusing or making additional uses for things they already own.
Not only does it save money, but in reusing or finding multiple uses for items, we also keep our planet greener.
Less waste. More recycling.
Water bottle. In a pinch an empty water bottle can double as a lumbar support on the plane, train or on a long car ride.
Cosmetic sponges. These come in handy when you have a blister, if your shoes are rubbing or fitting just a bit too loose. Slip into your shoe to help it fit better or cut a small piece off and place over the sore spot..instant relief!!
Altoids Tin. These make excellent receptacles for Q-tips, hotel sized soap or vitamins.
Sephora Bags. When you place an order on-line with Sephora, choose the bag option rather than the box. The bag is the perfect size for packing shoes in your luggage to protect your clothes. It also makes a great bag for packing accessories!
Contact Lens Case. This makes a great place to secure some concealer, pills or some hair product. Saves you from toting all those bottles around!
