Organizing solutions for better travel

Sometimes I do things a little differently from the average. If I think I have a unique solution to a problem you might share, this is where I’ll tell you about it.

I’m not naturally organized when it comes to the physical world. My ideas for keeping stuff organized reflect that, and usually involve storing things as conveniently as possible with the least effort required for upkeep.

I like attractive, but functional comes first.
