Disclaimer: Many of the images in this instructable are clip art based or gathered from the internet. Airport security asks a lot of question these days of people who are taking pictures of airport security check points. And since I'm too cute to go to prison I decided to gather images in another fashion.
Step 1: Packing
One of the biggest time savers I've found with packing is pre-packing. I have my shave kit constantly stocked with duplicates of deodorant, tooth paste, tooth brush, razors, nail clippers etc. This saves about ten minutes because you don't have to gatther everything up and put it in order. Instead you have to just grab a few things like perscription meds and you're ready to roll.
A note on perscription meds. If you are traveling by air keep these in your carry-on in the event your checked bag is lost or delayed. Also make sure you keep your meds in their original containers if travelling through customs or to a foreign country.
Since most of my traveling is done by car I put the amount of my meds I'll need in an old bottle and leave the rest at home. This way if I forget my shave kit in the hotel I don't have to drive back to get it. It can make a leisurely return trip through the U.S. mail and I'll still be properly medicated.
I always have two plastic bags in my suitcase. A large one to place dirty clothes in and a small one for shoes. I also carry some plastic cups. After seeing a great many news reports about how glasses aren't being properly washed at hotels, I decided not to take the chance. Call it paranoia if you wish, but the idea of drinking out of a glass cleaned with Lysol just isn't appealing to me.
To save a little space when packing I roll up my belt and place it in my shoe.
