Traveling is such a favorite of mine and I love being able to jet set somewhere. Since taking my first flight by myself to Chicago at 8 years old – things were way different in 1992, I’ve had my shares of travels around and have picked up a few tips and tricks to make the journey to and from my destinations even more of a breeze.
Tip: Bring an extra bag (if you can) for dirty clothes – I do not mix clean with dirty clothes. Have a separate bag just for dirty clothes. When you’re unpacking, it makes it a breeze to sift through what goes in the washer and what gets hung back up.
Tip: Always pack a travel steamer – I am not one to iron or like using someone else’s iron. Bring a steamer along like this one. It warms in 2 minutes and will have your clothes wrinkle-free in no time!
Tip: Sandwich bags aren’t just for sandwiches – for toiletries, pop off the tops and cover the open ended top with a sandwich bag, then twist the cap back on the bottle. It’s an added layer of protection to make sure nothing spills open and gets all over your clothes.
- Easy to pack outfits, like a maxi dress & sandals
- Light toiletries (toothbrush, floss, toothpaste, deodorant, simple makeup and lotion)
Extra tip: If your bag happens to get lost for whatever reason, you’ll have a bag that has items so you can at least shower, change, sleep and be a human until you get your bag back. It’s already enough heartburn losing your bags, but at least you can still function.
