    Hi Jen! I  love your organizing tips. i do have a question. You did a home tour and one of your videos you showed the beverage cabinet that you got from crate and barrel. is it called the steamer cabinet or the parker? 

  2. The Dancing Mommy on August 21, 2018 at 1:45 pm

    I love the sorting travel size and sample toiletries in baggies. Mine are all in one bin. I’m totally going to do that.

  3. sarah khan on August 21, 2018 at 1:45 pm

    why don’t you giveaway all that ridiculous amount of stuff to d needy. crazy hoarding. who needs extra of everything extra

  4. sydney98960 on August 21, 2018 at 1:45 pm

    Why don’t you have kids?

  5. Ingrid Bolanos on August 21, 2018 at 1:47 pm

    why do you have so many travel bags and endless makeup bags. just too much of everything. I’m all for having the necessities and maybe a few splurges but I personally can’t justify having that many bags. But I respect your choices and understand everyone is different. Don’t mean to sound judgmental. Just trying to understand. 

  6. 4Jirasoles on August 21, 2018 at 1:47 pm

    Tfs! You have a variety of awesome items and well organized… I bet it makes traveling easier! Take care !!

  7. docpadma on August 21, 2018 at 1:49 pm

    Hey fellow subscribers, unlike a lot of you who thought that jen had a lot, we who are from india and travel from us to india often, we have aquired a lot of different sized luggage for different needs.i have struggled with organising them, so thank you jen for this. Not everybody has the room for such a beautiful display but a lot of these tips can be used for any size space. Thanks jen!

    I travel about every two months, sometimes every month. I have thought of putting all my toiletries in a bag and leaving them there ready to go, but I worry about things spoiling after a while and I wouldn’t want my expensive face creams to go bad. Have you ever had this problem?

  9. Laura L Vegan on August 21, 2018 at 1:50 pm

    Would you ever do (or have you already done) a video specifically about your shelving system?  I know it’s the Elfa system from The Container Store and you installed it yourself but how did you determine the design and layout AND is it REALLY that easy to do yourself?   

  10. Brianna V.B. on August 21, 2018 at 1:50 pm

    Best. Video. EVER! Thank you for sharing with us.

  11. teenauh on August 21, 2018 at 1:51 pm

    Enjoy watching how these things are organized. I just worry about the little things expiring

  12. fuusha 99 on August 21, 2018 at 1:52 pm

    Why do you need so much of everything? Learn how to keep life simple, so you can enjoy more.

  13. xoAngelicaF on August 21, 2018 at 1:53 pm

    You have a closet dedicated to traveling wow lol

  14. Lyndia Curtis on August 21, 2018 at 1:55 pm

    Love your videos very much!

  15. Jami Schlafer on August 21, 2018 at 1:57 pm

    holy crap! I spent 7 weeks in South Africa in a medium sized suitcase and would never go back to anything bigger nor do I need options–even with kids! but we also live downtown, so space is much more precious! have fun on your travels!

  16. Cassandra S on August 21, 2018 at 1:57 pm

    You should do a video how to use your jewelry roll case.

  17. Mish thehusky on August 21, 2018 at 2:01 pm

    How come you don’t post videos on Winnie the tzu tube

  18. M0ra9 on August 21, 2018 at 2:01 pm

    As you have so many small bags already packed with toiletries, etc does that mean you have to buy doubles of all your skin care, hair care products – one to use and one to keep packed?

  19. Mikella Mcg. on August 21, 2018 at 2:02 pm

    I saw you have trunks in your closet i have the same one! When i go to camp i use it and its always such a mess i go for 2 weeks and have to fit shower towels pool towels toiletries, clothes, can you give me some tips on packing?

  20. MsMich710 on August 21, 2018 at 2:02 pm

    I’m not sure if this has been asked before, but how long has it been that dog’s aren’t put into carts and can be near you on the plane?  I have traveled and have never seen this before:)

  21. KatieJoE on August 21, 2018 at 2:03 pm

    I wish I had Jen’s eye for organizing! And motivation lol <3

  22. Chani P on August 21, 2018 at 2:03 pm

    I purchased the packing cubes and use them in packing for a month long trip. It is wonderful. Thank u.

  23. Lu Dy on August 21, 2018 at 2:03 pm

    Toooooooooo much😣 baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaags

  24. Katy D on August 21, 2018 at 2:03 pm

    The bin with all the sample travel size stuff…OCD heaven! Thanks Jen!

  25. workofheartdesigns on August 21, 2018 at 2:08 pm

    Once again, Jen, I enjoyed the video and what you shared.  I am unable to travel, but love watching the videos you share getting ready for trips and what you choose to share with the world during your trips.  Thanks again for continuing to share in the face of negative criticism.

  26. Deborah Conkle on August 21, 2018 at 2:09 pm

    Jen are you still doing videos? I’m new to YouTube travel videos. I thought I had a lot of "stuff"!

  27. Luisa Scoppa on August 21, 2018 at 2:10 pm

    Jen you mentioned you have an upcoming trip to Italy? Would be interesting to see how you pack for an international trip as all your current videos are based on domestic trips. It would be interesting to see the difference 🙂

  28. Brendaa Hayes on August 21, 2018 at 2:11 pm

    Holy OCD!

  29. Annette Ford on August 21, 2018 at 2:12 pm

    plenty of backup items for travel I’m impress thank you for the tips

  30. travellady68 on August 21, 2018 at 2:16 pm

    Thank you for putting these videos together. Some just take it to serious and want your life. Don’t get upset just smile and keep doing what you  do. Know one has a perfect life which is what they forget. Everybody has one life and if they didn’t make it a good one it not your fault. Be happy in what you have buy the world if you can cause I sure do . Love your channel.

  31. Stephanie Yanes on August 21, 2018 at 2:17 pm

    i absolutely love your videos. 

  32. apfelprincess45 on August 21, 2018 at 2:17 pm

    @ 15.47 "I just throw the things in the bag!" Face it Jen, that is an oxymoron if ever there was one! You never just throw anything in a bag! You’re the queen of organisation right down to the last cotton swab you put in your bags and we love you for it and your organisational vids too 🙂 Keep them coming and never again say that you throw things in a bag, because girl from what Ive seen, you DONT!!!!!

  33. Lu Dy on August 21, 2018 at 2:20 pm

    Toooooooooo much😣 baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaags

  34. SimplyBakings on August 21, 2018 at 2:20 pm

    I need to invite you to my place and help me organize everything. great job!

  35. LifeStyleBri on August 21, 2018 at 2:22 pm

    if i have this many spare products, they always expire :'(

  36. Ayra Brewster on August 21, 2018 at 2:22 pm

    great video jen 

  37. LiLo on August 21, 2018 at 2:23 pm

    I know I shouldn’t, but I’m feeling very judgmental here. This really is a lot of stuff to own… Just to decide what bag to use would take me an hour. And once you’re travelling and you regret your choice, knowing you have other options at home. I couldn’t do it!

  38. snehal mhaskar on August 21, 2018 at 2:23 pm

    This should be called organized hoarding. so many unnecessary bags.

  39. Jessica B on August 21, 2018 at 2:25 pm

    That’s a lot of stuff.

  40. SeriouslyBadElf on August 21, 2018 at 2:26 pm

    I wish you wouldn’t repeat yourself so many times in the same video. Otherwise I enjoyed the video.

  41. Raising Bumbles on August 21, 2018 at 2:28 pm

    LOVE LOVE LOVE watching your videos. You have great ideas. Thanks so much for sharing =)

  42. Meaghan Clougherty on August 21, 2018 at 2:32 pm

    Do you have any kids?

  43. The Uptownflavor Network on August 21, 2018 at 2:35 pm

    Organization goals! I have been trying to stash away travel size items as I find them (BBB is great for collecting them!) But it just winds up being a mess and when I am ready to travel I am still running around trying to buy items. This I can do. I just need to get my walk in closet as organized as yours. 

  44. Amine Salomão on August 21, 2018 at 2:36 pm

    What days do you upload on?

  45. zlpalmer on August 21, 2018 at 2:36 pm

    Jen, thanks for sharing. I love the videos. Where did you get the brown polka dot bins? I love them.

  46. Lis ArgenThai on August 21, 2018 at 2:37 pm

    Great video!!! Lots of great ideas! I’m inspired to organize

  49. baseri28 on August 21, 2018 at 2:39 pm

    Where did you get your cute bag with flowers on them ? I’m looking for this kind of small bag but I can’t find them :/

  50. jegonzalez83 on August 21, 2018 at 2:42 pm

    Great idea with the bins! I’m definitely going to adopt that idea!
