  1. I love life hacks and these ones are great! The button for earrings is so useful, and the bunk bed cinema is genius! I quite like the little cave one too – I always find it difficult to get to sleep when I stay in hostel shared rooms, with everyone else so close, so I’ll remember that one! x

  2. Some cool ideas! I doubt I’ll be staying in a hostel anytime soon but I did stay in them regularly when I was in college. I’ve gotten pretty good at holiday packing, usually keep it to the minimum. I’ve learnt from experience that I usually just end up wearing the same few things that I like anyway, so I just bring loads of t-shirts and a couple of basic jeans and skirts and a dress.

  3. Oh I absolutely love these tips. They are all great. The cinema one is such a great idea. I like the way that you can store your earrings too. The headphones idea to keep them untangled is awesome. I will have these tips in mind for my next trip. Thanks for sharing this, 🙂 xx

  4. I love finding hints, tips and hacks off other people. You can learn so much
