My Travel Necessities
I'm in the throes of planning a vacation coming up and it got me thinking about the things I consider my absolute travel necessities. My Airplane Seat Belt Extender I've still probably got at least til the end of the year before I could even entertain the idea of not using one and I sure as heck wasn't going to hope they had an extender for both of us so we bought one for each of us. It has brought us tremendous peace of mind until we are able to get rid of them for good. There are different kinds for different airlines but the A style fits ones like Delta, United, etc. Eagle Creek Pack-It Folder...LOVE these! Your skivvies aren't hangin' out if they have to go through your luggage and everything is just ready to grab. TSA Travel Lock This way they can unlock your luggage and not have to cut it off. Disposable Luggage Locks...for the times when they cut them off anyway and you don't want to buy a new lock on vacation or if you have to end up checking a carry on and want to keep it secure. Personal Air Purifier...I used to get sick EVERY SINGLE time I traveled in airports. Ever since I got this, I've never had a cold on vacation and trust me they're miserable when you're in hot places. Over-the-Door Hamper This is a lifesaver because we always rent homes with a washer and dryer and it keeps it all in one spot and off the floor in case critters try to invade your stuff. A Hanging Travel Organizer. We would be absolutely lost without this. We bring all of our toiletries, brushes and little things we don't think we'll need but end up needing anyway and the zip pockets keep any potential explosions from leaking. (Always take out 1/4 of the product like shampoo to give room for air expansion while flying or it could get ugly!) Finally, a First Aid Kit. I always travel with it whether in the car or on a plane trip because every single time we've ended up needing something out of it! Those are the main things I absolutely have to travel with to keep me feeling organized and stress free.
