I pretty much pack the same things in my carry on luggage so that I have them handy while traveling. I like to stay comfortable while I'm traveling and I want to be sure that I have what I need when I'm on the plane, at the airport and when I get to where I'm going.
What is a good carry on bag?
I'm excited to share this weekender carry on bag with you! I discovered it late last year and have been using it for the last 6+ months and I LOVE it! It holds so much, comes with a bag for your shoes and has a compartment that fits a 15-inch laptop bag.
It fits all of these things and more!
I actually put my laptop in this laptop case and then put it into the weekender bag.
It has so manyyyy pockets! And it has a trolley sleeve or a luggage strap sleeve so it will slip onto the handle of your rollaboard so easily…that's the biggest plus to me.
How many times have you put the handles of a bag or a tote bag on the top of your luggage only for it to fall down while you're wheeling your luggage around the airport. All. the. time. right?
And bonus, there are two side pockets on the outside and my water bottle fits perfectly! I can bring my empty water bottle through security and fill it up at a bottle filling station at the airport but then I can put it in my bag and not have to carry it and run out of hands. You know what I'm talking about.
Let's get back to the items that go into my carry on bag. The number one thing is a change of clothes along with underwear. If you have checked baggage, in case it gets lost or delayed, this change of clothing is a GREAT thing to have. Trust me, I speak from experience!
- my planner! (I also love these dividers and planner pages)
- my favorite pens
- kindle (I have the previous generation, the new one is here, here's the case for my kindle, it's the one that looks like a composition book!)
- this book (I don't usually travel with actual books because they take up a lot of room in my bag and they are heavy but this one's worth it!)
- hand wipes
- travel camera (& lens)
- pill organizer (I have had this one for years!! there are some prints on sale right now!)
- tech accessory & cord organizer
- travel water bottle with this commuter lid
- nested Pusheen snack containers (I'm obsessed with these!!! There are four containers and I also have these ones! Are you surprised at all?)
What's your number one thing you have to have in your carry on baggage? What am I missing?
