Travel Necessities

It’s YouTube Monday! Today we’re talking about travel.

To be fair, I’m actually in my cubical today not jet-setting. I wish I were going somewhere fabulous, but we can talk about travel just the same.

Today’s video is a short little list of travel necessities! I try my very hardest not to check a bag if I can help it. I have severe anxiety that it’s going to get lost. This means I have to get very strategic with my packing.

Check out my video with my favorite items for strategic and easy packing!

Do you check a bag or carry-on?

    I need to get myself a steamer! I used to never check a bag but lately I don’t want to bother carrying or pulling a bag around the airport.

    Packing cubes have become my favorite thing lately. I just love that I can keep everything more organized. I usually check a bag. I like to be as free as possible when I’m walking through the airport. 🙂

    We hear you on not checking a bag – high five! Saves money and time! Win win. Haven’t made the jump to packing cubes yet but hear a lot of good hype about them.

    For the first time ever I went on my last trip with only a carry on and it felt so freeing! I’m definitely going to pack lighter from now on.

    I never thought about the containers and tubes to put valuable things and liquids! Nice idea!
