Organizing in a Hotel Room

August 10, 2010 by  

Do you even bother to try?

I know for some a hotel room is a free ride to be messy! No worries that neighbors will drop in, someone will make your bed for you in the morning and bring you fresh towels…

What do you do when you stay at a hotel?

Do you put your clothes away or live out of your suit case?

This is what I normally do to stay organized in a hotel room.

I like to unpack right away.  When I first get in, I like to get my clothes out of my suitcase as soon as I can to keep them from being more wrinkled.  I hang them up and use the drawers to put them away.  I think like to hide my empty suitcase in the closet.

I get my toiletries and put them in the bathroom, set up the needed electronics for my computer and phone by my bed.

I like to try and keep my room neat….but you know what? If I’m in a hurry..I too have been known to just throw stuff on the bed or not put clothes away if I am running in or running out of my room. I am certainly not neurotic about it.

This last week it was almost impossible to be organized. There were 3 of us in the room and we were racing from one event to another…..literally we might be in to grab something or to change like a quick change artist and run back out to our next event.  Of course all the while dropping off bags of swag that we were given.

I did unpack when I first got there.  My roommates prefer to just open their suitcases and live out of those.  That is fine…that is how they like it. You take that….and 3 people in a small bathroom with no counters and tons of swag bags all around and you don’t have an organized Hotel room…you have a very messy one.

Did it freak me out…nope.  I was fine with it.  It was a crazy week and we had crazy stuff coming into our room. I didn’t fret or do my freak out thing (I can’t stand all this stuff!!!….aaggghhhh).  Now…if it was a long term situation…it would have been different. But it was just a temporary mess….

We had fun..and spending fun time with my friends was more important than trying to figure out how to have a neat room.

    I generally don’t unpack much. If I have any nice clothes, I will hang them up, but that’s about the extent of it.
