I’m a thoughtful and methodical packer, unlike my husband. I spend days prepping and preparing for a trip to make sure I don’t forget anything while he waits until the last minute and just wings it! To me, the most important thing for making packing and traveling easier is to have the right gear so here’s a list of my travel bag essentials.
Growing up we always used gallon ziplock bags to pack our toiletries and inevitably they would end up tearing and needing replaced so when I discovered these clear travel bags, I knew they would be perfect for repeated use. They’re available in 4 sizes which is idea for my organizing “routine”. I keep my toothbrush, toothpaste, contact lenses, solution, a case, medicine, q-tips, and other must-have hygiene and personal products in a larger one and my travel size bath and body products in another. This option is particularly nice because it already comes with refillable travel size bottles, jars, and spray bottles.
This Hanging Travel Makeup Organizer has everything you need to store your beauty essentials. It features a foldable design and comes with an attached hook, making it easy to hang in a variety of spaces so you can easily see and access your makeup.
I’ve shared this travel jewelry case before, but I’m sharing it again but it is a MUST. I love that it’s small but provides a stud plate, necklace hooks, ring grooves and adjustable storage space to hold my jewelry. The individual necklace hooks reduce the probability of my necklaces getting entangled. Highly functional and great for traveling! Would make a great gift.
These packing cubes allow you to neatly pack all your clothes tightly into space saving bags. This 6 piece set consists of 3 different size clothes storage bags, 1 bra/underwear bag, 1 shoe bag , and 1 toiletry bag. Obviously you can use them for whichever items you’d like but I love the convenience and ability to pack more.
This Wonderlust Weekender Tote is perfect for a weekend getaway! It’s made of faux leather, is a large size (19.5”L x 10.5”H x 7.5”D), has a removable, adjustable shoulder strap, and is available in 7 color varieties!
Last but not least, this medium sized suitcase is the perfect carry-on size to fit in the overhead bins on a plane. I chose the rose gold color (so stylish) but it’s available in 14 colors and several other sizes.
