It seems like I am on the road all of the time. When you travel a third of the year, it's easy to feel like that. When I am on the road I try my best to stay organized, but living out of a suitcase can get messy fast. TownePlace Suites by Marriott® understands this, and has partnered with The Container Store® to bring the elfa® Closet System into their hotels. Check out my three favorite new products that I just purchased using my provided $50 gift card to The Container Store®, and learn more about this exciting partnership below.

How many times have you gone to put your stuff away in the closet of a hotel room just to find one flimsy closet rod and three hangers? Yeah, when a closet looks like that, I just opt to live out of my suitcase instead. TownePlace Suites® understands the needs of the extended stay traveler, and that is why they have partnered with The Container Store® to place the elfa® Closet System into their rooms.

Now, they are adding the elfa® Closet System thanks to their partnership with The Container Store®.

I don't know about you, but I like to have my own toiletries when I travel. I don't want the shampoo from the hotel, I want my own from home. I have limted space though, and can't lug around huge bottles that don't meet airport standards. That's where this handy little case of toiletry bottles comes from. Now I can carry my own shampoo, lotion, etc. with my when I travel, all in one handy bag.

  1. A laundry bag is essential if you don’t want dirty clothes mixed up with clean ones! I use a hanging organizer also keep things together and accessible. I also keep essential items packed together, clothes I will need the first night get packed on top, etc. Shoes get wrapped in plastic grocery bags, but the shoe rack in the closet would sure come in handy!

  2. I try to pack lightly so I can find the items I need without having to dig though too much stuff. These closet organizers would help a lot.

  3. To stay organized, I pack clothing items I will need first on top. Another thing I find indispensable is a hanging organizer where I keep my makeup, hair products, etc. I can't do without extra hangers and ziploc bags, either. I would find the shoe rack very helpful to keep shoes organized.

  4. 3 great ideas, two our family have used for years. We find ziploc bags very handy for all sorts of things to help protect and keep things dry. I really like the cord wraps! A great way to keep the cords protected from damage and tidy. Thanks for the helpful information!
