With quite a few work trips each year and already a few family trips planned for this year, I thought it was the perfect time to share what to pack for a trip to make your life even easier. We just got back from Atlanta a couple weeks ago, and even though I was already doing a few of these things listed below, there were a few that I wasn't...but you can bet that I will next time!
1. Pack the saran wrap. It is perfect for making all your bottled liquids leak-proof. Take the lid off of your bottles and add a small piece of saran wrap. Then place the lid back on the bottle and tape it shut. This will offer 2 levels of protection, and you definitely won't have your clothing soaked in liquids. I have learned this lesson the hard way too many times. I use Chi hair oil, and about half of the time I have ended up with oil all on everything. Never again!
2. Pack a backpack. I love to carry the biggest one possible so I can use it as my purse, my laptop holder and a place to put any other valuables or essentials in that I want to keep on me at all time while traveling. It's perfect while navigating through the airport, and it's just as handy to carry around once you reach your destination. Think of all the souvenirs (or comfy sandals, sunglasses, bottled water and lipbalm) you can stuff in it.
3. Pack a jewelry organizer. Without it, I wouldn't even waste my time packing jewelry. I still have about 12 necklaces knotted together from years ago that I still have yet to be able to get apart. Trust me on this one.
4. Pack a small sewing kit. I cannot tell you how many times a button has fallen off or something has ripped. Nobody has time to find a tailor while traveling, so pack a kit so you can make small alterations if you need to.
5. Pack a fabric steamer. I recently received the Conair Turbo Extremesteam Handheld Fabric Steamer, and this has changed my life. I travel for work about 6 times a year, and most all of those times I have to dress up for meetings. The worst is when I pack a bunch of dresses and blouses, and even though I roll them in my suitcase, they still end up wrinkled. I seriously cannot believe how quickly and easily this steamer worked. It's also great for use at home on curtains or other fabrics.
I'm excited to hopefully help make your travel a little easier too by teaming up with Conair today to give away one Conair steamer! To enter, just use the rafflecopter widget below. Good luck! What is the one thing you pack that makes your travel easier?
