School Colors & FlipFold: College Dorm Must- Haves

Today is officially the first day of Summer! But that means that (some) recent high school grads are heading off to Summer Term before their first Fall as college freshmen.

They will (slowly) become accustom to dorm life, which means communal bathrooms, teeny-tiny closets and drawers, not to mention tackling their dirty clothes in the laundry room . This has to be the least fun part of dorm life (besides the bathrooms).

I remember my girls complaining about lugging their laundry down to the basement, at odd hours to avoid waiting for a machine to open up, and then having to lug it all back upstairs. Oh, and how they complained about their non-existent closet & drawer space. Good think I had sent them with their FlipFolds, of course how could I not? I sent them with their school colors (Orange & Blue-can you guess where they went?)

So, as your graduates get ready to head off school, send them with a FlipFold (in their school colors of course) to make sure that whenever they actually DO their laundry, they will be able to put their clothes away neatly in their tiny closets, and not look as wrinkled (hopefully!).

FlipFold Adult & Junior come in Blue, Black, Neon Green, Pink, Purple, Orange, Yellow, Hunter Green, Grey, Turquoise, and Lavender.

Happy Folding!

Vacation or Staycation?

How is it summer time already? I can't believe it. But, I must admit, when the seasons change, I am always ready to pull out my season appropriate wardrobe, and hopefully plan a few weekend getaways.

Although, sometimes staying at home can be just as relaxing and therapeutic.This past weekend, I stored the remainder of my sweaters, jackets, heavy linens, and any other non-summer essentials. I of course, FlipFolded these items and organized them so when I am ready for Fall they will be too.

I have found, over the years after packing and unpacking, that keeping a neat suitcase or duffel bag makes all the difference. I cannot stand when only a few days into my trip, my once neat and organized suitcase is in total disarray. I have found that if I bring a few travel organization essentials, I am much happier when I return home to tackle the task of unpacking. Here are my go-to travel essentials:

- FlipFold Jr or Adult (depending on if I carry-on or check a bag, I will take one of the two in order to keep my folded items crisp & as wrinkle-free as possible).
- Travel Laundry Bag - (For soiled clothes, shoes). I like to keep these items separate from the rest of my goodies.
-Lingerie Bag - I like to place worn lingerie right in this mesh bag, so when I return home, I can just throw it in the wash.
-Jewelry roll from my Flip'N Dazzle- I usually bring a few versatile pieces for a quick trip, and just keep the jewelry roll in my purse or carry-on.
- Clear DryCleaner bags- I like to wrap my hanging items in these to keep them wrinkle-free.
-Dryel-At Home Dry Cleaning Starter Kit- I usually just bring the stain remover pen. But I like being able to take care of any dry-cleaning as soon as I get home.

Do you have any packing/traveling tips or essentials? Please share!

Happy Travels!
