I use the smallest case in my purse to hold various reward and gift cards I have. Large case could be tech case for various charger cords and medium case I use for essentials in car. . I like to keep small bag in car console to hold tissues, gum, chap stick, and hand sanitizer for my family. Not things I necessarily need to carry daily but nice to have in car if needed.I also put my car charger in there when not needed. I also think these bags would make great gifts. Break up the set. Keep one for yourself and give the others as gifts with small gifts inside. The small one in particular would be nice way to give gift cards!!

Perfect travel jewelry cases
I have five of these sets now, and I just love them. I use them to pack my jewelry for trips. Generally, I only need one set, in a color to match my carryon for the plane (keep the valuables with me), but sometimes I will use all the small ones if that sorts the jewlery better. The large one also fits a nook or ereader perfectly. What I most love is the nice satin lining. I do not like to store jewelry in plastc. The VB jewelry rolls/pouches all use see through clear plastic, and I can't take the idea of storing good pieces in that relatively hard plastic. Especially pearls that need to breathe. Plus plastic gets sweaty. If the items meant for jewelry used this nice soft satin, then maybe I would buy them. But for now, these cosmetic trios are the perfect solution.

Large one can fit iPad mini!
Believe it or not, I can actually fit my iPad mini inside the large one! I can now use it as a sleeve! I also use the medium for my chargers, and the small one for traveling nessecities! Get 'me while they are on sale, and you won't regret it!

I use the larger two bags for packing necessities: for example, vitamins and pills in one, cosmetics in another. The smallest one is perfect to put my Verizon "hot spot" into, and I bought the matching case for my iPad, so it is a "set."
These are so useful that I bought extras...one for keeping recharging wires, etc. in, one for first aid items....I could go on and on. These are really versatile pieces.

I'm in middle school and these are really useful to me! For the large one, I use it as a pencil pouch so I don't have to get yet another one of those boring binder pouches. I use the medium sized one as a "personal use" kit. In it I have pads, tampons, deodorant, a compact mirror, and hand sanitizer, which all fits a bit snugly. The smallest one i use as a hair touch-up kit, with hair bands, bobby pins, and hair clips. I think this is my most useful purchase from VB yet! If they go on sale again, I will definitely buy more!

Great to organize your important Items!
I used this trio recently on a 2week trip we took - I was determined to not get sucked into seperating things in ziplocks that rip (ugh). I used the largest of the 3, for my kids DSI chargers, DVD charger and our 2 phone chargers. It was a pleasure to store them inside. The middle one I used for my nail maintence - I like to change pedis and manis weekly. I was able to store 3 nail polishes, nail polish remover pads, a nail file and clippers. The smallest of the set, I used to store my jewelry in and I also fit a bottle of OTC Pain relief (snuggly). All in all a great set to have - and to use for so many things ! I will never be without them - it kept us organized and I loved the sturdy zippers. It was well worth it!

A "Must Order" --especially when on sale
This is one of the best values VB has to offer. Especially if you get the sale price. Each of the trio can serve as a stand-alone piece for a gift or gift holder---lip gloss, gift card, etc. The quality is excellent and it is great that each is lined in water resistant plastic.

Best Gift Idea!
I was pondering on what to get my mother for mothers day, and my sister for her birthday. I bought them both a Cosmetic Trio. My mother loved the trio in Sunny Valley and my sister loved hers in Baroque. But most of all I loved the price! It really is an amazing gift idea thats not over expensive but thoughtful. The smallest cosmetic my mother uses as a coin purse, and my sister uses as a wallet for her more valuable bills such as $100.
The medium cosmetic my mother uses it as a make-up pouch, and so does my sister. For the large cosmetic my mother uses it to keep her pen and paper drower more organized by putting the pens and papers in it. As for my sister, she uses it when she's on the go with her kids to put bags of snacks in so she doesn't have Cheerios in her purse!!! Honestly, a great product for a great price! I'm even thinking in getting myself one. And you should too!

The ultimate everything holder!
When I purchased my Cosmetic Trio in Dogwood, the products immediately exceeded my expectations. I can use these pouches for everything! I also love the fact that the inside is lined, so I do not have to panic when something spills inside one and the interior gets wet. Aside from these containing my makeup and other various toiletries, I can fit all of my other necessary belongings. For example, I can fit my gift cards and money in the miniature one to replace a coin purse, or if I'm attending a party I can fit it in my purse to hold my lipstick. The medium one I can use for gym class to hold my small cream and mini comb, and it is such a cute carrier for other items alike. The big one has too many uses to state, but I mainly use it for stashing my soap, face towel, toothbrush toothpaste and comb when I attend a sleepover. Sometimes it also holds my iPhone 4, its charger, my Apple earbuds, and still has so much room to spare. I wouldn't waste a second contemplating about purchasing this if you plan to use these pouches like I do. Then again, your specific needs and items may be different from mine, but if you are thinking of buying these and have similar tastes and needs like I have described, I recommend buying it right away. Also, the dogwood pattern is very elegant and I am always receiving compliments on these adorable pouches! I cannot thank Vera Bradley enough for the Cosmetic Trio and will always love it.

I absolutely love these bags. I have three sets and am ordering two more! I use one big bag for stuff I always seem to need like chap stick, a pen, perfume stuff like that. It's easy to move the bag from one bigger purse to another or toss in my over night bag. The medium bags are pencil cases for me. One holds pens ans pencils. The other one holds sticky notes, highlighters, lead, white out. Things I don't always have to have but it's nice to keep them together and accessible. And the small bags work great for jewelry in my gym bag and makeup bag. And the third one is my wallet/ change purse. I don't carry an actual wallet I just put my cards, change, and cash in the small bag!
These bags are very handy and of course very very well made.
