My Travel Essentials



When traveling, I like to make sure that I have everything that I use at home, so rather than trying to pack for a trip, I keep all of my basic necessities packed and ready to go.  I don’t keep them fully supplied at all times, but I try to replenish as needed.

I have different cosmetic bags for each “category”.  My categories include oral hygiene, bath/shower, vision, feminine hygiene, nail care, laundry, skin care vision, first aid, bedtime, body, bathroom, jewelry, electronics hair, and pool/beach.  Each bag contains travel size products of items that I use at home.

Feminine Hygiene

I make sure I keep this bag well stocked at all times.  In it I include sanitary napkins, panty liners, tampons, feminine wipes, panties, hand sanitizer, Ziploc bags, Charmin wipes, Therma Care Heat wrap, and Midol.



I keep the laundry necessities here.  Static Guard, Downy Wrinkle Release, Woolite, Shout, Tide, Tide Pen, and even a pop-up laundry hamper.


Bed Time

I try to keep my routine the same even when traveling so I make sure to include my cuticle cream, hand lotion, foot lotion, lip balm, and I even pack a pair of fuzzy socks.



There are some things that are a must!  Deodorant, lotion, body butter, powder, body spray, and perfume must travel with me to keep me smelling fresh.



Hair ties, moisturizer, comb, brush, hair spray, sleeping cap, wrap cap, head band, barrettes, hair clips, hair/bobby pins, pony tail holders, sock bun, hair clips, hair polishing serum, flat iron, hot curlers, and hair spray travel with me, you never know when you’re going to need it.



It is a must that I keep toilet paper, personal spray, mirror, soap sheets, Lysol, Clorox wipes, Cottonelle wipes, hand Sanitizer with me at all times.  I have been in public restrooms many times that were out of toilet paper, I’m always prepared.



I keep an extra cell phone charger, tablet charger, laptop charger, Headset/Earbuds, camera charger, and memory card packed and ready to go.


I typed a generic checklist of the items that I like to keep in my bag.  Even though I don’t always have every item on my list in my bag at all times or replenish my bag every time I run out of something I always know what should be in my bag.
