Our Packing List Must Haves and Suggestions

Updated: Aug 22, 2021

Be sure to copy Important Documents.

Make a copy of your passport, email it to yourself, put a copy in your luggage and give a copy to a family member.

Snack and Beverages

Bring fruit or other protein-packed snacks especially for the flights that don’t offer snacks.

Bring a water bottle to refill and reuse. Just remember that you can’t go through security with a full water bottle.

Drink Mixes. The water in the drinking fountains at the airport isn’t always the best tasting. I like these “on-the-go” packets.

To start your trip off, Ginjan is a refreshing ginger drink with long list of scientifically verified health benefits.

Keep Tabs/Tags On Your Bag.

Use a luggage tracker to locate your suitcase in the event that it gets lost.

Label your bag tag with an e-mail address instead of your home address, so that you can be easily located in transit.

Prep Your Carry-On

Airplane cabins can get chilly so be sure to bring a blanket or jacket. You’ll also want a toothbrush and at least a day’s worth of prescriptions in case your luggage is delayed.

Go light on the clothing - a tip that needs to be followed by me. :)

You can follow this formula: three tops for every bottom.  You can get away with repeating pants or skirts. As for footwear, limit yourself to sneakers and two pairs of shoes—one casual and one formal.

Be Prepared for Everything Just-In-Case

  • Call your credit card company, give them your destination and the amount of time you will be away.

  • Toothbrush and toothpaste. Complimentary from the hotel does not mean quality.

  • Hand sanitizer or sanitizing wipes.

  • Reading glasses if you need them.

  • For easy tipping, bring one dollar bills.

  • Be prepared for wardrobe emergencies by bringing Downy Wrinkle Releaser.

  • Bring a small First-Aid Kit. Keep yourself comfortable with some band-aids and for small cuts or blisters, a couple Advil for headaches, and Tums for possible heartburn. ($5.29)

  • Reading glasses if you need them.

  • Ear phones can send the message that you’re not in the mood for small talk.

  • Reading material. Even if you don’t think you’ll need it, you never know when your flight will be delayed

  • Work-out clothes - don’t forget your top, shorts/pants, socks, underclothing, shoes, hair-ties, braces, etc.

  • Mini umbrella and poncho for unexpected rain.

  • Sunglasses. Cloudy weather at home doesn’t mean cloudy weather at your destination.

  • Last but not least is this Hands-Free Personal Neckband Fan for those FLASHES!

Most importantly - don’t forget electronic accessories and equipment. You don't want to have to go without these.

Remember your chargers and adapters (laptops, IPAD, Apple Pencil, tablets, e-readers, MP3 players, cameras, phone, etc.–batteries only last so long.

One security advantage you can have while away on vacation is the RING Doorbell, it will give you peace of mind.

For that extra layer of safety with using public restrooms.

This list in the long run may save you some money and prevent stressful situations while on vacation.
