1. Packing Cubes and toiletry bags will change your life! (If you can’t tell we’re HUGE fans.) These nifty inventions compress and organize clothes inside any luggage or duffel bag making everything you packed easy to locate. Use packing cubes to pack all your gym clothes in one and your jeans and tees in another, and for folks packing multiple kids in the same large bag (we’re all about saving on checked bag fees), we recommend packing your kids items in different color packing bags. Try the Pack-It™ Isolate Compression Cubes Set for an ultralightweight anti-microbial option, Pack-It™ Garment Folder L to minimize wrinkles (think collared shirts) and the 2-sided cube to separate wet from dry or clean from dirty. Long gone are the days or traveling disorganized or messy!
2. Gear organizers and shoe bags are another great win for keeping dirt from intermingling with your clean clothes. If you travel with lots of electronics or camera equipment, finding organizational bags that keep those items protected are also clutch.
3. In our post – but still very real – pandemic world, traveling with a Face Mask will continue to be a great option to help you travel confidently, even if and when airlines no longer require it. Make sure to think through your travel process and pack hand sanitizer, cleaning wipes, a freshly laundered travel pillow, and anything else you need to feel healthy and safe.
4. Lastly, don't forget that other countries don't use the same types of electrical outlets. If you need to plug in electronics while you're abroad – hair dryer, curling iron, cell phone, laptop, digital camera, etc. – then you'll need an international power converter to make sure your charger fits the wall socket.
