Travel Bags For Your Underwear

A couple months ago we had a four-day-long trip in a national park South of Aachen. Because it was such a short trip, we only took a very large suitcase with us and I packed into that for the four of us. Besides that we took a couple of backpacks but the point is that all of our clothes were in that one suitcase. Yes, it was big enough  but the smaller items like panties and socks got lost all the time and I had to go through the whole suitcase to find a sock every single morning. It was a bit annoying and it made me thinking: how could I minimize the mess? This was when I came up with the idea of personalized bag for the underwear. Each of us should have one bag, maybe even with some kind of name tag on it and it would be a lot easier to find what we are looking for.
In a month or so we will be traveling again and I wanted to take action before that and yesterday the bags were finished! Let me show you what I came up with!

With two boys and a Husband in the family you can probably guess which bag is mine. The largest! And not just because my name is on it but also because I’ve got bras and a few more delicate pieces to store in that travel bag.

The name tags were made by cross stitching which is one of my favorite techniques. I learned cross stitching in elementary school and I love it ever since.

I also added a soft cotton inner linen and a draw string to close the bags.

We are now a little more prepared for our next trip and each time we travel we get better. It is stressful enough to travel with kids, let it be a long road trip or a flight, it doesn’t matter. Your nerves will be put to a test anyway and these little tricks might help you to survive.

    • Thank you! Unfortunately we don’t have a separate laundry room, so we collect the dirty clothes in our rooms in baskets. Check out here how our little one’s basket looks like!

      • I was more thinking of while travelling. Do you keep it all in style, or just opt for the first plastic bag that is available when you need one? That’s usually what happens with us, but I’m thinking I should change that.

  1. O, I see now. I usually just grab one or two plastic bag. I was thinking also to make a huge laundry bag, as well, but I decided against the idea because the bags would probably be too big and full, so it would be difficult to pack them and other things into the suitcase. But if you don’t care and have enough space for the laundry bag separately in your car’s trunk, I think it would make sense.
