Traveling and "In a Pikle"? Dill with it!

Hey there, Neighbors!

Today I want to take a few minutes to tell you about one of my favorite products for our trip down to Florida for the cruise.  With all of the trips we've taken over the years, we have plenty of stories we could tell you of somebody forgetting something, a wardrobe malfunction, a spill, or any other little emergency you could think of.  When browsing online for products to feature in our Cruisin' event I found In a Pikle and knew I had to contact them.  You see, In a Pikle has little emergency kits for just about anything!  Before we get started with our review, here's a little bit about In a Pikle and how they got started...

"Some call it luck, we call it divine intervention. In 2004, we became neighbors living only a few doors down from each other and instantly… a friendship was born! Our kids were the same age, our husbands have the same “first” name, and we share the same (great) full time job….being a mom!In 2006, Tamara moved to beautiful Southern Utah and we longed to have something that would keep our long distance friendship alive. In 2007, Marianne surprised Tamara with an unexpected visit for her birthday along with a homemade gift. It was a unique “emergency kit” made out of a hot pad and some snack baggies! Tamara loved it! In fact, it wasn’t long after that she called Marianne with the vision to make and sell these amazing little organizers to other busy moms like us!
This adventure hasn’t always been easy, but we’ve grown both personally and professionally— and, we have learned MANY things along the way.  Life’s Crazy and we find ourselves “In A Pikle” a lot, (we could tell you a few stories!) and this little organizer has helped us “Dill With It.”"

For our review we were sent a Pepper Pikle in Sleek Black... a very feminine and classy bag complete  with a wrist strap.  The way these work is each Pikle has see through pouches inside that will allow you to categorize your emergency Pak.  The pouches are removable, and can easily be cleaned should the need arise.  

Now last year on the cruise we ended up paying $8.00 for a box of bandaids because of the back of a pair of shoes rubbing... so I was happy to see that the Starter Pack contained 10 bandaids!  The Starter Pak includes...
  • 1 hand sanitizer pen
  • 1 spot remover pen
  • 3 individually wrapped antibacterial wipes
  • 1 credit card size mirror and floss combo
  • 1 pair of tweezers
  • 1 pair of fingernail clippers
  • 2 emery boards
  • 1 travel size sewing kit
  • 1 retractable mini scissors
  • 1 24″ tailor tape
  • 3 hair bands
  • 5 rubber bands
  • 5 bobby pins
  • 5 safety pins
  • 5 paper clips
  • 1 phillips head mini screw driver
  • 1 straight head mini screw driver
  • 1 mini pen
  • 1 “In A Pikle” sticky notepad
  • 10 adhesive bandages
  • 1 package travel tissues
  • 1 pill box

 As you can see this if chock full of all sorts of little items that you're likely to forget, and then wish you had remembered.  During our cruise this came in handy so many times!  We used the scissors to remove a tag, the hand sanitizer pen, the mirror, the tissues, a hair elastic, bobby pins, and of course... bandaids.  This made our trip so much easier and less stressful, and I will definitely be re-stocking it to bring on every trip in the future.  I don't know how many times I heard, "This is such a great idea!" or, "Why haven't we had this before?!?".  

If you travel at all, you absolutely need to get yourself one of these.... they would make great gifts too!  And guess what?!  If you order before April 15th, 2017 you can get a discount using the code : atthefence15.  So head on over to the In a Pikle website and take advantage of this offer!  You can also Like them on Facebook and Follow them on Twitter to stay up to date with their latest news.
