One of my top suggestions when it comes to travel is to carry on your luggage whenever possible. I will admit as much as I love fashion, shoes and accessories, I am definitely of the less is more mentality when it comes to travel. Not only does carrying on help you get into and out of the airport or cruise ship faster, but it also makes travel more manageable.
I am going to share with you 7 essentials you need to pack in carry on travel bags, which will help make your trip easier.
Have you ever brought too many things on a trip and ended up not wearing half of it? That used to be the story of my travel life.
Overpacking is a travel mistake I often see people make and I want to help you change that, so you don’t lug around unnecessary items.
Here are 7 essentials you need to pack in carry on travel bags, to help you streamline your next trip:
Packing cubes are a great way to fit more into your luggage, keep your clothes organized and also less wrinkled when traveling.
The quality is amazing!
A compact laundry bag is a must-have travel item because then you can keep your dirty laundry separated, while still in the same bag, from your clean clothes.
This is perfect for trips when you have to move hotels and are visiting multiple places.
Make getting through airport security a breeze thanks to this TSA clear toiletry bag. This bag is waterproof, strong and made from a durable material that will not tear easily.
Fit all your liquid containers easily in this bag, then inside your carry on without worrying about leaks.
I have to admit in the past I have wrapped plastic bags around my shoes when traveling so they don’t touch my clothes in the carry on, until I found these shoe bags. These bags are made of a high quality fabric and even have a drawstring.
This foldable, portable, waterproof bag and storage case, ensures that even the smallest of my beauty items doesn’t slip out when traveling.
There is also a built in zipper pocket and a hook design to save space.
This luggage accessory set not only saves up to 30% of the available space in your suitcase, but it also saves you time from having to unpack.
You simply pack the system right into your carry on, and since it collapses and expands, you can pull it out of your luggage and hang it up when you arrive.
