6) Grid It Travel Organizer
I own a lot of gadgets and each of them is necessary when I travel. These gadgets come with chargers, cables and other loose accessories that are a bit tricky to pack. To help out on this, check out the Grid It Travel organizer.
Say goodbye to digging around in your bag for the little stray items
Compatible to insert with regular size laptop bag and travel case with its fitting size

Lazada Philippines has them for 200 pesos up. Check it out here.
7) Travel Size Bottles
To save space, you might want to ditch that big bottle of shampoo and conditioner or the glass bottles of your beauty products. Transfer them to small travel size bottles so you can still enjoy that face cream without the big glass jar.
Landmark Makati has a selection of these travel size containers. Daiso and Japan Home sell travel kits for 88pesos so you may want to check that out too.
Another suggestion would be to buy travel sets of your favorite beauty products. Most of them have it but if they don’t try looking for sample pouches of the products.
8) Ziplock plastic bags (It does not only store your favorite food, it has some other uses too!)
Yes, you read it right. You know those vacuum bags that they advertise where you put your clothes in and vacuum the air out to compress the clothes, ziplock bags work the same way. How do I know? I’ve tried it of course! The only downside is that the clothes get crumple marks but the ziplock bags work the same way at the fraction of the price. Grab the biggest size at your favorite grocery store.
All you need to do is put the folded clothes inside the ziplock bag, put it as much as it can hold, zip it but not all the way. Make sure there is an opening to push the air out, not too big though. After pushing the air out, lock the bag all the way. Walla! Compressed clothes.
You can also use the ziplock bags to secure your gadgets and prevent them from getting wet. You can also place the bottles containing liquid to prevent them from spilling all over your luggage.
There you go! I hope these items will help you out on your next trip.
