Simplify your overnight makeup kit with this brilliant packing hack!

Traveling is fun — there's no doubt about that. Whether you're visiting somewhere new, or just returning to a much-loved place, getting out of your daily grind is exciting.

But there's also plenty of stress that goes into traveling. First of all, you have to figure out and collect everything you need to pack, and then you actually have to pack it!

And it's not just changes of clothes; it's also toiletries, makeup, and all those other little essentials you can easily take for granted at home. Suddenly, you realize that all of this is nevergoing to fit in your overnight bag.

But don't worry. You don't have to start removing things.

Just like there's a certain way to maximize suitcase space while packing clothes, there are also ways to streamline your overnight bag all by yourself using only a few inexpensive things, plus whatever cosmetics you already have. And all you'll need are some screw-top contact lens cases!

To see how a simple lens case can become a brilliant overnight travel accessory, be sure to watch the video below! Not only will it free up space in your bag, but it will also easily fit within TSA guidelines.

Happy travels, and if you're not traveling, SHARE this nifty trick with someone who is!
