A bargain-priced idea for luggage organization

A few months ago, when I went on the All American RV Blogger Tour, one of the gifts I received was a set of Eagle Creek Pack-Its, which are small zipper bags that you can use inside a suitcase to organize socks, underwear and other items:

The lightweight bags are made of nylon. After using these a few times since then, I've found that I really like them - they seem well-made, and they keep the inside of my suitcase from becoming a wild mess of belongings! However, this set of three bags sells for close to $40.

We went to Ikea over the weekend, and I spotted a cool four-piece set of "UPPTACKA" travel organization bags in the store:

Now, while these bags are definitely of a different style, the price is different too... this set of Ikea travel bags was just .99!

TODAY ONLY: Free shipping at Gymboree and $5 deals!

I just found out about this, but Gymboree has free shipping, today only, plus deals on sale for $5 or less! What looks good?

I absolutely love this camping-themed tee in Bright Lime for $5! I bought it a few weeks ago when it was $7.99, and it's super cute -- camping designs are embroidered into the shirt. (These are the kinds of things I like to dress my boys in when we go camping or to theme parks too, as bright colors make them so easy to spot!)

This fun "Foosball Champ" sleeveless tee is $3.99!

How about sandals for next summer - just $5.99 per pair!

Over on the girls' side of things, this cute ruffled tunic is $5!

How about this girls' Howling Glitter Wolf tank for $5? (Hey, it's no "Three Wolf Moon" t-shirt, but hey...)

Lots of kids' sun hats and bucket hats are in the $5 range too.

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Always Discreet and Jewel-Osco. I have been compensated for this post. All opinions about Always Discreet and Jewel-Osco are my own.

Have you heard of Always Discreet? It's a new product for women with sensitive bladders. Always Discreet products are on sale at Jewel-Osco this week, but you can get a FREE sample mailed directly to you at this link!

Always says:

One in three women has a sensitive bladder, but only one in nine use a product designed for sensitive bladders. Always understands that bladder leaks are a natural part of being a woman. After all, pee happens. They believe that every woman deserves to feel comfortable at every stage of her life. That's why they created the new Always Discreet for sensitive bladders, in liners, pads and underwear.

If you're interested in this sample, grab it quickly! Once the free samples run out, they'll be replaced by $2.00 coupons for the liners & pads and $3.00 coupons for the underwear.
