Tips to pack a carry-on bag

People ask me what I pack in my carry-on when I hit the friendly skies. Here’s the list…

—————-
LO & SON’S BAG: This carry-on is lightweight. There’s a million pockets to carry all my items. I LOVE the back panel sleeve that slips over the handles of my suitcase! https://www.loandsons.com/the-og?product=56

—————–
PILLOW & BLANKET: Many airlines no longer offer these in coach class.
—————–
VAPUR: Bottled water is a no-no through security. This “pouch” can be rolled up empty and fastened with its clip onto your carry-on. Once through TSA you fill it with one liter of H2O https://vapur.us/shop/element/element

JEWELRY ROLL: I like to carry my jewelry with me, so I pack it in this roll that doesn’t take much room http://bit.ly/2EvHxU6
—————-
PASSPORT: When traveling outside of the country.

CELL PHONE: If you’re going abroad it’s best to include international roaming on your phone. Most cell carriers have numerous plans to choose from. AT&T offers the following 30 day plans—$30 for 120MB cellular data /$60 for 300MB cellular data and unlimited wi-fi access at hotspots/$120 for 800 MB cellular data and unlimited wi-fi at hotspots. Or, Skyroam Global Wifi Hotspot keeps you connected around the world and it’s small enough to pack in your carry-on. You don’t rely on cafes or hotels. https://www.skyroam.com/

CELL PHONE EXTENDED BATTERY: Mophie has the BEST extra battery! It attaches directly onto the phone like a case. All you do is flip a button when you’re running low and, voila, you have 100% more battery life! http://www.mophie.com/shop/iphone-6-plus/juice-pack-iphone-6-plus

BOOK: Enough said.
——————
WALLET: For in flight purchases and ID.

EAR PLUGS: These are imperative on long flights when you want to curl up and snooze. I’ve tried many different kinds. The most comfortable, effective ones are made from this silicone putty. Engine noise, talking, snoring etc. is blocked. Drop a few pairs in your carry-on http://www.macksearplugs.com/details/ear-plugs-for-snoring/pillow-soft-earplugs-6-pair-value

HAND SANITIZER: I’ve gotten sick more than once after flying, so now I’m super vigilant about killing germs. Spray pens are the more portable and less messy version https://www.amazon.com/GOJ200424CMR-Gojo-PURELL-Sanitizing-Spray/dp/B003H9429Q
——————–
WIPES: Good to refresh your face, etc. before landing. All Natural Herban Essentials towelettes smell SO good! They’re made with orange, lemon, lavender, mint, & eucalyptus oils https://www.herbanessentials.com/

——————–
CLEAR PACK BAG: I put a clear, durable TSA approved pouch to store breath mints, chap stick, eye drops, hand cream, medications, etc. in my carry-on https://amzn.to/2ICn7eQ
——————–
DEODORANT: I found a small, natural solid stick with no aluminum or no parabens, with aloe as the main ingredient. And it works !! https://www.lavanila.com/

———————
LAPTOP: The Lo & Son’s has a padded pocket for your computer. DON’T forget to take all the cords/earbuds for your electronics
———————
GOPRO: Probably won’t use enroute, but it’s crazy fun to have when you arrive at your destination
———————
Don’t forget the 3-1-1 rule for carry-ons. Liquids must be 3.4 oz. or smaller, fit in a one quart plastic bag, and one bag per passenger.
Bon Voyage! Enjoy your trip!
