What do you do when you’re going on the road and want to take all your supplements with you? You have melatonin for restless nights, maca for that once-a-month hormonal acne, a digestive enzyme for your gut health, and you haven’t started packing your clothes yet. If you’re thinking you might have to drop three pairs of shoes so you can make room for those big bottles, here’s a genius space-saving hack to try: a bead box.

It’s essentially an extra-large pill organizer that she labels with the names of her vitamins and each dose.

Thank singer-songwriter Tove Lo for the tip, which she shared with her gut-health guru, nutritionist Courtney Swan. When Swan started touring with the artist full-time, she wanted to bring her 15 daily supplements but couldn’t fit the bottles into suitcase. So she cribbed Lo’s bead box hack—it’s essentially an extra-large pill organizer that she labels with the names of her vitamins and each dose.

Not only does the bead box take up less space in her luggage but it also makes mornings more efficient. It’s “super simple because they’re all lined up and ready to be taken,” Swan says. Sounds like a recipe for a serene traveler—no “happy pills” needed.
