With careful pre-planning and some useful tips on how to keep items neat and organized, packing can be quick, efficient and easy. o.b.® Tampons and Anne McAlpin, well-known travel expert and author of Pack It Up!, have partnered this vacation season to offer you some quick packing tips for your summer travel:
Anne McAlpin is a world-renowned packing expert. She has been featured on Oprah, The View, The Today Show and many other programs. Anne ’s packing philosophy is all about packing everything you need and packing it well q– while leaving behind all those things that you just woni’t use.

Another Anne McAlpin favorite is the Zip Checkable Tote. Because it folds down small and packs into its own pocket, ito’s easy to throw it in your other suitcase when yout’re packing for your trip.

Anne McAlpin ’s Microfiber Travel Towel & Blanket is a best-seller at Travel Essentials. Super absorbent and exceedingly soft, the towel comes in a nifty little tote pouch which is great for packing up your book, sunscreen and towel and heading for the pool. (A portion of the proceeds of the pink towel also go to researching a cure for breast cancer, which we think is really cool.)
