Dot & Dot Small Packing Organizer #Review #packingcubes

I could use all the organization help possible when we travel as a family.  There are four of us, and even though my children are older and have their own suitcases, there are times we are all in one big weekend getaway bag.  I have four of the small packing cubes.  Each member gets one to put their toiletries in when we share a weekend bag.  This way, no one can complain that someone took something out of the bag and didn’t put it back in there.  Each person packs what they need with me double-checking to make certain the necessities are included (I even check hubby’s bag because he is known to forget something).

The bigger packing cubes (which I do not have) would be perfect to put an outfit in for weekend travel.  Each person could have their own bag making packing and unpacking so simple.

Dot&Dot Small Packing Organizer Dot&Dot Small Packing OrganizerI have been brainstorming ways of how these packing cubes could be used when people are not traveling.  I am thinking of buying a set for my cousin.  She could put a change of clothes for her baby in each cube so it is easy to grab from the diaper bag.  It would be so easy to see the change of clothes and not have to dig.  You could also put dirty clothes in the cube so it wouldn’t mix with the clean clothes.  You do have to hand wash the cube and hang to dry so I wouldn’t put anything wet in there; it would get on other things.


I realized I can put my essential oils in the small cube.  It fits 10 across with 2 rows.  The only thing I need to do is add a piece of foam for the extra space, and I am ready to go!

This holds 20 bottles of doTERRA essential oils.  There is room to spare.

Purex Crystal Aromatherapy #Review

R1_1707_INSI_Crystals_AromatI am a Purex Insider.  I received the product to review.  All opinions are my own, and I will only recommend products to my readers that I would love to have in my own home.

I have been using essential oils for about a year now.  I have started doing extensive research on the benefits of each oil–starting with the ones I have and continuing to the ones I want.  I have used Wild Orange for the past 6 months to help soothe me when I have anxiety and when I need a boost to my energy.  I have also used certain blends for calming and relaxing effects.  I was excited to hear about Purex’s new product.

Purex has a new laundry enhancer; it is Purex Crystals Aromatherapy and comes in three scents–Energy, Well Being, and Serenity.  I had the pleasure of trying Energy.  The Energy crystals have a citrus scent which I love.  I love adding the crystals to my towels and washcloths; it eliminates the laundry odors.  The scent after taking a shower is amazing!  I also love adding this to our loads of clothes containing marching band practice clothes, the clothes I walk in, and play clothes.  The fresh laundry scent is amazing; it is not overwhelming at all.  It is a great in-wash scent booster.

Have you tried the new Purex Crystals Aromatherapy?  Let me know what you think.
