I’ve always loved going on adventures, but during Covid it really hit me how important the memories I made traveling compared to all the things sitting around the house.
That’s why as soon as covid restrictions lifted, I made it my mission to travel more and buy less stuff. Just last year we traveled internationally twice, flew/drove to 6 locations and we even went on a camping trip! With all our travels I often get asked what is in my travel gear in our photos. Therefore I’ve complied a list of my favorite travel gear. Be sure to come back as I’ll update this last often.
I used to put all of our things in one suitcase and dig around when I needed to find a piece of clothing. Now I have all my things in packing cubes. I bought a seperate color for each family member. That way it’s easy to find, saves us space and is a great way to keep organized while traveling. Tip: I take our packing cubes out of the suitcase and place them into hotel drawers for easy organization. Who else unpacks when traveling?

I used to put my shoes in grocery bags, but now that I’ve become a better traveler I put my shoes (and my families) in these shoe bags. Once again every family member has their own color. These eco friendly reusable shoe bags are a great way to store your shoes and keep dirty/wet shoes separated.

This toiletry bag is a life saver! I can carry all of our family toiletries here and hang it for easy use. It comes in multiple colors, has lots of zippers and pockets and

I have a few products I can’t live without. Additionally not all products come in travel size. To fix this problem I get a set of these bottles. These leak proof, refillable containers are great!
I like to accessorize with jewelry, especially when I am going on a beach/pool vacation. This jewelry bag is a must! It holds all of my bracelets, earrings and even necklaces. Each pocket has it’s own zipper so no more untangling needed at your arrival.

Traveling with my family means we make a lot of dirty laundry. In order to be organized while traveling I got this super light pop up laundry basket. It folds flat and keeps dirty clothes away from our clean clothes. Win win!
