Seeing double

I think I learned this from my flight attendant friends, Tricia and Kaki.  Keep your suitcase packed with duplicates of toiletries, makeup, hair dryer, and the like.  Then when it's time to go somewhere, all you need to think about are the clothes and shoes you will wear. 

For my over 50 friends - I use the same principle when it comes to reading glasses.  I picked up several pair from the dollar store and I assign one pair to the kitchen, one to the den, one to my bedroom, etc.  It's wonderful!
