~ TODAYS TRAVEL TIPS

BACKPACK ORGANIZER

I found the answer?
I live in one room. My life is inside my hotel
room, and my house is decorated with stuff I pull
out of my backpack.

FUNNY... I do not know why. But in the minus
One Star Hotels (-1) I stay in, they do not have
closets, shelves, drawers, or anywhere to put my
clothes, and other miscellaneous items I collect.
The actual Hostel with dorm beds are even worse.
No locker half the time, and no security.

OK...The tradeoff is, I live cheap, but I am lacking
a few of the 5 Star services and such. I can live approximately
30 days in a country for the price of one night in a 5 Star Hotel.

But, you ask?
Where do you put your clothes?
Where do you sit things if you do not have shelves?
Where will I lay this, and lay that?

THE ANSWER IS
THE FLOOR OR THE BED

You can leave your stuff always in your backpack
or suitcase. If I do have a closet. It has no hangers
or maybe only 3. I have stuff strewn from end to end
in the room. Walking on thing. Falling on thing.
I get to sleep with more THINGS, and I am not
even sure these things like me, or are female.

On the floor. The Sink. Hanging 5 pieces of clothing
on one hook. Not unpacking, because where would
I put the stuff. My life is defined by my stuff.
It is my stuff, and I want to play and use my stuff.
But living in a -1 Star Hotel can be more convenient.

I have tried various solutions. Lot of small bags.
Less clothes. Looking for better room. Nothing
is really good.

EUREKA! I FOUND THE ANSWER

I had to invent the perfect solution.
If necessity is the Mother of invention.
Frustration is the Father.

My frustration has led me to the answer.

I NEED:

1. Something that I can hang on 1 hook,
2. Something I can use when I have no hooks.
3. Something that will store easily and unpack easily
in my backpack.
4. Something that is lightweight and not extra kilos,
or pounds.
5. Washable
6. It convenient, and does not require that I hunt
for hours to find something. To leave things in
my backpack, means I have to open. look. Repack
everytime I want something.
8. Something that does not allow things to fall out
and tumble around, or out of my backpack.
9. Cheap... I am a hobo still.
10. Something I can make myself, or buy.
Made out of normal. Off the shelf materials.
Purchased anywhere in the world.


TWO SOLUTIONS
1. MAKE IT
2. BUY IT

WHAT IS IT?
Oops. Still do not know what the AT%!$% I am
talking about?
