I’m not Making This Up

I really mean Makeup.  You’ve guessed it these are makeup bags.  Cost me $3.99 at Target.  I know this is not a new idea and I think I remember it back from my film school days.  Recently the wife had a couple extra little bags around so I repurposed them for my adapters.

The problem I couldn’t see what I had in the bag.  So on my last visit Target I took a look around.  With wife in tow of course.  Didn’t want to be seen in cosmetics by myself….

Anyway found these little gems clear and just the right size.  The great thing is they fit into my video and audio bags easily.  I also have my adapters divided up for different uses.  Now if I don’t need some of the adapters I can leave a bag or 2 behind.

    Brilliant idea! I’ll definitely be sharing it with other people.

    I’ve seen people suggest sandwich bags, but they always stretched out on me. Makeup cases are stronger and a smarter choice.

    Chinese food containers – with clear tops – work well, too. And they provide some protection against bumps and such inside the gear case.

    My friend Ted who works at RED camera has always done packing like this. Even when we were kids growing up in Florida.

    The funny thing is that he still does it with gear for the RED camera.

    It’s hilarious.
