I get asked lots of travel questions so I thought I would share some of my must pack items when we are getting ready for an upcoming trip. I always TRY to at least start off well organized. I still have a huge issue with over packing but thats a whole different story. Once we started traveling with Grey I realized less is more and organization is key for sanity. I remember thinking certain things, such as packing cubes, were pointless or a bit overboard. However, I am all about any type of item that will make my life easier while living out of a suitcase.
Grey, Michael and I each have our own bags so that things don’t get mixed up. Its a lot of bags but its just easier to keep stuff organized that way for me. For luggage I love ANYTHING that has four wheels and is easy to push. I, personally, use Briggs and Riley luggage (thats my exact bag linked) and the Goyard wheeled carryon. Grey has an adorable shark bag from pottery barn kids- curtesy of his very first bestie, Maggie. His exact one is sold out but this one is very similar.
Favorite Travel Items
1- Above I linked my exact bag but I think the main essentials for me are four wheels, easy to push and I prefer soft top. I say this because my particular bag can extend which is a great feature, especially for longer trips.
2- These are perfect for carry on bags when going through security for liquids. Whenever I travel with Grey and have all of his snack packs its great to just put everything in these and then you can pull it out easy peasy when going through security.
3- Obviously after a long day of traveling my clothes have seen better days when I go to unpack. A lot of my blouses or dresses are just a wrinkled mess. This little guy works great and is small to stuff in your suitcase!
4- I originally started using packing cubes for the first time with Grey’s stuff. I would separate his clothes, jammies, shoes ect.. into these cubes and it made the trip that much easier. Once I realized how much I loved them I got myself a set!
5- This little purse organizer I love for a lot of reasons. I actually use it when my purses are in my closet to help them keep their shape. I use it to keep the inside of my bags from getting dirty. I use it for a ‘diaper bag’ liner when we travel with Grey. I use it to keep organized when we are out and about. In summary, its great 😆 !
6- The amount of cords/chargers we travel with have reached an all time high. Its actually a bit ridiculous. There’s phone chargers, computer chargers, baby monitors, apple watch, camera chargers… the list goes on and on. I use this to keep them all organized, untangled and they all take up less room this way.
7- A great way to keep your brushes from getting beat up!
8- I originally stumbled across these items on another bloggers page and ordered a two. Once they arrived I absolutely loved them and decided to get a couple more! The computer case, makeup case, jewelry case and shampoo bag are perfect for every trip!
