  1. […] Roll-up Organizers are perfect to have on hand!  You can fill them with many differrent things to keep yourself organized, then just toss them in your purse or suitcase! I’ve created a larger Roll-up Organizer with large plastic baggies to store larger things in. It’s perfect for carrying things like papers, magazines, kids coloring books and crayons or other kids items for road trips.  You can also use it to carry in a diaper bag and store extra set of clothes and diapers.  Then just roll it up and toss it in the diaper bag!

  3. Marti, this is such a great idea... and so easy to put together. I think I might have some time to whip this up for my Levi when he leaves to go play in Vegas next weekend. Knowing him, he's going to need a little organization when he packs! Pinned! :)
    • Gloria, I love these little washcloth organizers! They are so easy to whip up and can be used for so many things! I bet your Levi is excited about going to Vegas!! That's where my daughter's fiance proposed to her, she had no idea!
      • That is so exciting when the man just burst out the moment! I had to slightly mention to my husband that our 7 yr (of playing house!) was coming up while we were going to be in Hawaii, so it'd be a great place for him to marry me. He said okay... and I planned my wedding in 2 weeks! sometimes, if you want something done... you have to do it yourself. hehe (This was only 3 yrs ago.) Hope you enjoy your day, my friend! :)
        • Awwww, you're still a newlywed!! That is so sweet and your husband sounds so sweet, too. I love how your wedding happened! I've always wanted to go to Hawaii!! I hear it's just as beautiful as all the pictures look!
