It’s hard to pack light when traveling…. at least for me. I usually travel with a couple large suitcases, a large purse, a bag of snacks, and an extra bag full of shoes. To the disappointment of my husband and any others that travel with me, I’ve given up trying to pack less, but it would be nice to at least figure out how to pack so that I was more organized. After traveling quite a bit this past month for weddings and events out of state, I have come up with a list of five products that will help with all of our packing problems (well, a few of them at least), and maybe have you thinking about exchanging a pair of shoes for some of these travel essentials….
1. Sling Backpack. All of those large purses pulling you down can be hard on your back! Switch your purse out for a sling backpack, and suddenly you are comfortable and ready to go!
3. Travel Toothbrush. Packing with plastic baggies can be annoying…and after brushing, the toothbrush can cause the bag to be slimy and gross. Keep it clean with a travel toothbrush case that easily covers the brush!
4. Hand Sanitizer with Carabiner. Instead of digging through bags, purses, and whatever else you have after using those nasty airport bathrooms, just use this nifty carabiner to clip the sanitizer to the outside of your bag!
5. Pill Box. Nausea, headaches, and stomachaches – call me Debbie Downer, but these can all be a part of traveling. Don’t pack a ton of meds; just pack what you need in this cute little pill box. It even has separate compartments!
So there it is – five products I recommend not leaving home without. You may still need several suitcases, and your flight might still get delayed, but now you’re organized and ready for anything!
