I have been living out of a suitcase for what feels like months. Every week I’ve been packing, unpacking, and repacking for various trips. I’m normally really good about unpacking my luggage immediately upon returning home. I throw dirty clothes straight into the washer and hang/fold whatever I didn’t wear and put my shoes away.
The one thing that I’ve been kind of bad about? My toiletries. If it were a one-off trip, I would unpack those as normal, but because I’ve had these quick turnarounds I end up keeping what I use daily on the counter. It’s driving me nuts– but it does make packing a lot easier when everything I use is already out. To keep things a little less cluttered, I’ve been trying to keep my makeup and various toiletries in cosmetic bags on my counter. I have a huge collection of cosmetic bags– so no matter what size or shape I need, I’m covered.
I thought it’d be fun to round up some cute options. They’re great gifts, and if you’re short on space, they’re perfect storage solutions too!

This oxblood one is my typical go-to because it fits a LOT– I put all my big things in there. I love using these little guys for makeup; even though they’re small, they fit all of my everyday favorite products. If you need something a little bigger, try one of these. They pack well and can be used for organizing products in a dorm room!
