For Travel: DIY CarryOnTheGo Survival Kit
The DIY CarryOnTheGo Survival Kit is great to bring along whenever going out. It can contain practical items one would want to use in order to freshen up on the go. It is very easy to make and can be put together using FREE SAMPLES and a small bag of some sort. That is what is so great about this idea! So you could freshen up and try before you buy at the same time! 🙂
This is great for ANYONE: men, women, boys, and girls (young and old)! Yes, anyone can benefit from having a handy DIY CarryOnTheGo Survival Kit nearby.
You can find FREE samples on GimmieFreebies.com, of course. We update every day with lots of goodies and would love for you to stop by regularly! As for the small bag, the key is to find and use something light and portable – what you would not have a problem going to school with, grocery shopping with, or going to the movies with, etc.
To make your own CarryOnTheGo Survival Kit, just follow the steps below:
- Supplies. Gather all the supplies you need to create your survival kit. That includes a small, durable bag (possibly with pockets) and your collection of FREE samples listed here on GimmieFreebies. The bag should be big enough to fit a hand-full of items in, but small enough to put in a purse, man-bag, or bookbag, etc. The kind of freebies to include are medication samples, multivitamin samples, hair & body lotion samples, makeup samples, possibly small, dry food/drink samples (e.g. drink mix or tea packets), band-aid samples and much more. The idea is to carry things that are mainly deemed as necessities.
- Organization. Next, fit all the samples into your small bag: bigger stuff on the bottom, smaller stuff on the top. Certain samples like hand/body lotion packets [after opening] may either need to be put in a small, plastic bag so the substance doesn’t leak out [onto other things], or use a paper clip to clamp the opening close. Obviously, if you have pockets, then it’s an easier process to fit the items somewhere neatly.
- Storage. Put your survival kit in a bigger bag – something that you would carry everyday. As for me, I like to toss mine into my tote bag that I take to school or purse for elsewhere. Also, you can keep it in your car or gym locker. For kids, keeping one in their school lockers makes it easy to get certain medication, etc., they need to have in emergencies.
- More Options. The CarryOnTheGo Survival Kit is a great [small] gift option for those going away to college. It also makes for a good charitable donation to someone you know who may be going through rough times. Even going to a baby shower is a great reason to share one. I’m sure you can think of much more!
And that’s it!! Refill when you can and need to. Just come back here again for more free stuff please! 🙂
Ladies, if you do not have a cute, small bag to store your samples in, get these best-selling Flower Cosmetic Bags from Clinique for around $6 all together!! That means you get a large and small cosmetic bag for around six bucks. Lots of people like this bag duo and gave great ratings.
