If you’re serious about staying compact and organised when you travel, it may be time to invest in one of these travel organisers. Here are our favourites.

    Most of these items are fairly common to most travellers.

    First, you don't 'need' to take all your toiletries with you in your cabin baggage (unless you're on a ticket with no checked luggage and are taking everything on board). You can pack them into your checked luggage and not have to worry about taking them through security.

    Secondly, rather than having to worry about packing cubes, you can purchase a pack of large resealable zip lock bags at Coles, Woolies, Kmart & BigW. Put all your clothes out and make them into a 'day pack' - underwear, top, pants, dress, etc. Put them into the bag, zip the lock to around 3/4 of the way along, then roll and expel all the air and finish off the zip. Then pack them into your luggage. Takes up less space. 'Hercules Resealable Large Storage Bags 15 pack' $2.50 @ The Reject Shop, also available @ Woolies for $2.90.

    Pill organisers. Don't take your meds in them if you're going overseas. Your meds should be in their original packaging with a dispensing label attached. Your doctor can do a list of your medications, PBS and non-prescription, and this is to be carried with you at all times. There's a form available from Medicare on the internet in a PDF format that you can download and complete yourself, Make sure that ALL your meds are included. Check out your destination to find out if any of your meds are illegal in that country. I understand that Singapore has the most stringent rules in regards to pain medication. Check it out before you travel. Most countries will allow you to have up to 3 months worth of medication with you when you enter the country. ALWAYS take your repeat scripts with you just in case you forget one of your meds, you can fill it at the chemist at the airport. Just don't refill the script within 20 days of the last filling, otherwise you'll have to pay the full cost of the script, not the current concessional rate.

    I use a 'Removable 7 Day Tablet Organiser available @ Chemist Warehouse for $10.49 each (at the time of writing). I have 2 - one for my day and one for my night tablets. They have removable days which are easy for travel.

    DISCLAIMER: The businesses I have mentioned above may, or may not have the products I have mentioned above. I have done my research on the internet and they indicate that the products are available at least online. Check with the business for in store availability.
