Travel Must-Haves – PACKING

A few years ago, I decided to try packing cubes! At the time, there was a (minor) packing cube craze, with influencers posting their cute polka dot and floral packing cubes all over Instagram. I was skeptical. After all, I’d gotten along just fine without them for years. Since I was just trying it out, I didn’t want to drop a bundle and pay for the fancy-schmancy Calpak travel cubes that everyone was using. Instead, I snagged THIS set on Amazon.

After one trip, I was hooked, and I’ve never felt the need to upgrade to the Calpak cubes (even though they’re really cute!). With seven cubes of various sizes, this set allowed me to keep like things together. (Think underwear, swimsuits, pajamas.) I even use the large one for flip flops, as you can see in the photo above! When I get to my destination, I usually just lift the packing cubes out of my suitcase and place them in drawers as I unpack. It keeps me organized the entire time we’re there!

Everybody has their own system when it comes to packing, but I think mine is pretty good if I do say so myself! 😂 Swipe through below to read about some of my other PACKING travel must-haves and click on any image you see for more information or to shop.

Travel Must-Haves – AIRPLANE

To stay organized (not to mention germ-free!) on the plane, I love my Fly Caddy. It fits over the tray table on the seatback in front of you. The back provides handy pockets for things like your water bottle, current read, and phone. When you lower the tray table for a snack, to watch a movie on your iPad, or to work, the front side is covered too. I bought mine on Etsy, but there’s also a version on Amazon that one of my assistants shared with me, and it looks great too.

Travel Must-Haves – DESTINATION

I’ve tried lots of methods for organizing my toiletries, including the Ziploc bag method 😂. I’ve also tried several toiletry bags! THIS Bagsmart Toiletry Bag is by far my favorite! With a sturdy hanging hook, lots of clear zippered compartments, and elastic bands to hold all of my bottles in place, it’s roomy enough for all of my skincare lotions and potions!
