It's that time again... Works For Me Wednesday over at Rocks in My Dryer.
All of my husband's family lives out-of-town. When they come to visit, they usually remember to bring all the little things they'll need, but every now and again, something gets left behind.
For just such an occasion, I keep a little basket in the guest bath loaded with various things they may need: toothpaste, toothbrush, mouthwash, dental floss, deodorant, shampoo, shower cap, shower gel or soap, lotion, baby powder, shaving cream, disposable razors, etc. These are all things I pick up during a hotel stay, a visit to my dentist, or in the trial size section at the drug store. My cost is very minimal, but the pay-off is huge! My guests are so appreciative, and there is rarely a need for a trip to the store for that forgotten item.
Additional hint: Since I am a migraine patient and sensitive to many scents and fragrances, I go for unscented items when possible. That helps me, of course, but I find my guests are pleased when a product they've "borrowed" from my basket doesn't compete with his/her perfume or cologne.
