Travel at a Moments Notice

If the Wanderer turned to me and said "Lets go on an adventure" I could be ready to leave in less than an hour. This stems from my childhood filled with spur of the moment trips. My parents travel philosophy of if we have the time and money we went. As a result of this I have developed little tips, tricks, and hacks to make spur of the moment adventures possible.

Tip 1: Invest in a well stocked toiletry bag. In my cabinet I keep a fully stocked bag of necessary toiletry items, mini size shampoos, conditioners, toothpaste, full size toothbrush, tweezers, face wash. Anything and everything I find necessary for getting ready on an average day. This bag is solely for travel. I don't dip into this stash if I run out of a full size. When I get home from a trip, I restock this bag.

Tip 2: Keep a well organized makeup drawer. I don't have a collection or an organization system as intense as some Youtubers, but I do keep my items organized and in their proper spot. This makes tossing the basics into a makeup quick and easy.

Tip 3: Keep a partially packed bag ready to go. Some things stay in my bag year round. Extra feminine products, a flash light, a back up wall charger for my phone, a seamless comb. Things that may slip my mind while I am packing to leave in a hurry.

Tip 4: Organize that closet! Same as above, a well organized closet will make packing for a last minute trip easy. I like to organize mine my type and fabric weight. My sister organizes her's by type and color. Mr. Wanderful leaves the closet organizing up to me. I also fold and place clothing in drawers in a way that I can easily see everything in the drawer.

Tip 5: Proper and routine vehicle maintenance will not only extend the life of your car, but also make last minute getaways possible.

Tip 6: Keep your car stocked. A GPS, maps, all those little things you appreciate when you travel. I personally like to keep a pair of fuzzy socks in the glove box for times when I am riding shot gun and letting Mr. Wanderful drive.
