Designlovefest Packing Cubes Review

My boyfriend works in sales which means he’s on the road A LOT. Because of this, he is a master packer. Every shirt, pant, sock, and pair of underwear (yes, even underwear) is rolled and packed in a very exacting order. So inevitably, every trip we go on his bag always looks like it was packed just minutes before while mine looks I detonated a landmine in it. Since this is not a skill that comes naturally to me, I wanted to try packing cubes to try to reign it in, and of course had to share my full Designlovefest Packing Cubes review here with you all. Designlovefest put out a super cute set of luggage and travel accessories for Target so I thought I’d start there. The Designlovefest packing cubes come in three sizes that fit inside each other for easy storage and for $20 it was a low stakes attempt at organization.

After trying a couple of variations I found two ways that I think would be helpful to use the cubes.

Option 1

Probably best for a beach vacation where you need to pack swim suits.

Option 2

For a long weekend (or a week if you’re packing-inclined) and no swim suits.

I used these on my recent trip to Hawaii and I’d say they worked out pretty well. It was definitely nice to have things grouped together and made it easy to repack up when we moved between islands and back home. I’m already planning how I can use them better next time. Maybe start switching to clean clothes vs. dirty clothes cubes to make laundry easier once you’re home?

What do you guys think? Is there a different way you’ve used these? Does anyone else have a Designlovefest packing cubes review they would like to share? Let us know in the comments.

Attaching a wood fence to a chainlink fence

As I mentioned in my last fence/gate update post, I helped Erika attach a wood fence to the chainlink fence in her backyard. The process was similar to when I converted a chainlink fence to a wood fence, except in this case, we left the chainlink fence intact. This method is a good option if you want to add a little more privacy to your yard or camouflage a chainlink fence while you wait to save up for a completely new fence.

Fence Updates and Two-Panel Wood Driveway Gate Plans

Hellooooo, I’m thinking about fences again! You all had the pleasure of following along as I moved and rebuilt the fence in my backyard and then converted a chainlink fence into a wood fence along my driveway, and now it’s finally time to build that driveway gate. Of course, I can’t just build a driveway gate and leave it at that, I’ve also decided to cap the entire fence to cover up the dogear pickets and give everything a cleaner and more finished look. HOORAY!
