Spring Break is on the horizon, which means it’s time to start preparing yourself and your family for travel. Packing is an essential part of travel (sometimes the most stressful part, too). After many years of traveling, I’ve found it’s critical to take all the steps necessary to minimize the stress of packing. Choosing the right luggage and travel accessories can make your journey comfortable, safe, and stress-free. I have gathered my absolute favorite travel necessities. I’ve included everything from suitcases and carry-ons to dopp kits, packing cubes, and so much more below! Happy traveling!

Throughout my many years of traveling, I’ve found that it’s best to minimize stressors that are within your control. For me, one of those stressors is a cluttered carry-on. There’s truly nothing worse than searching for something in your bag and having to fight with tangled charger cords… especially in a pinch. I’ve started using the Dagne Dover Arlo Tech Organizer and I absolutely swear by it. It houses all chargers and cords neatly in one place, which minimizes cord-induced chaos in your carry-on! Other fabulous options: Calpak Tech Organizer, Bellroy Tech Kit, Bagsmart Electronic Organizer, Away Tech Case.
Within the past few months, airline travel has been more unpredictable than ever. I’ve heard stories from numerous friends whose checked bags were delayed or even worse, permanently lost… truly a travel nightmare! Luggage trackers in the form of smart tags is a great way to take control of tracking your own luggage. Two that have come highly recommended are the Apple Airtag (which you can store in holders, such as this Belkin Holder) and the Tile Mate (iOS and Android compatible).
Travel Pill Organizer
When it comes to packing, making the most out of the space you have available is absolutely crucial. I’ve found that using some type of medicine organization system has drastically decreased the amount of space taken up by medicine, supplements, etc. I absolutely love this 7 Day Portable Pill Organizer… it breaks pills up by day, and each day is separated by morning and evening pills. Here are a few more options: Magnetic Foldable Travel Pill Organizer, 8 Compartment Portable Pill Case, 7 Day Pillbox.
Dagne Dover Landon Carryall Weekender Bag
I have been on the hunt for a carry-on weekender bag that is both functional and high-quality. After seeing one of my dear friends use the Dagne Dover Landon Carryall Weekender Bag, it’s at the very top of my wish-list. This bag is available in five different sizes, all of which are approved to carry-on. Comfort is key, and the neoprene handles make this bag so easy on your shoulders!
