BUDGET BELLE: Organized Chaos

It's Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial start of summer and the official start of summer travel madness. If you're like me, you're a little OCD about packing. If you're not like me and can just throw things into a bag and leave . . . well, I admire you. Please, tell me your secret.

Regardless of whether you just throw things into a bag or pack methodically, you're definitely going to want to have one thing organized and easily portable - your make-up. The last thing you want is to be searching through your suitcase for an eye pencil, only to find it broken to bits near your favorite silk top. No one wants to see that. And no one wants to have to spend loads of money to dry-clean make-up stains out of a silk blouse.

The solution? A cosmetic bag. I prefer the ones that open up into two sections - this way you can open up the bag and see exactly what you've packed without even having to unzip the compartments. If something spills, just take a damp cloth or paper towel and wipe it clean - it couldn't be more simple.

My cosmetic bag is from the Sonia Kashuk line at target. While her bags change from season to season, the colors are always vibrant and the quality is fantastic. At $9.99, you can't ask for more than that. I've had the same cosmetic bag for about 4 years and it's still going strong.

Happy packing, have fun this weekend and don't forget your sunscreen!
