Handy things to take: Bedding

When I traveled to California, I resided in a partially furnished studio and one time I stayed in a guesthouse. In both cases I needed bedding. I found bringing my own bedding was easier and more economical than having to buy it every time. I used three large zippered plastic bags to transport these items. One bag was utilized for the memory foam. I wanted the bed to be comfortable and the memory foam made sure I accomplished that purpose. Another bag held two pillows. The last bag contained the sheets, mattress protector and towels.

If the zippered plastic bags proved too bulky in packing, I just used Target bags. I have found them to be the best and sturdiest of all store bags. If I put the items in smaller bags, I was able to wedge items such as sheets and towels into spaces easier. When I decided to use the option of small bags, I still took the folded zippered plastic bags with me since these bags fold flat. When I reached my destination, I put all the smaller bags into the larger zippered plastic bag so I would not have to make as many trips to get these items inside the hotel room.
