Planning a trip is both exciting and stressful. Their itineraries to check out, extra arrangements to make while you’re gone, and nothing gets more chaotic than planning what you will take with you. I spend way too much time in a car headed somewhere, so I know a thing or two of what you should pack. I have two moods, either I pack my whole life up or I take one thing. So here are the absolute essentials you must have when traveling!Make your trip a breeze! Here are some must-have travel essentials. Click To Tweet
If you’re in a plane or in a car, being comfy will make the hours go faster and will make you feel better when you’re in a cramped space. I usually get cold easily so I make sure to bring a small sweater that can easily be rolled up. I also always have a blanket handy (I have like three in my car) because you never know when you need to take a nap. For me, it is so important to feel comfortable when I’m traveling or I get really restless and that is never fun.
On a road trip, stops are very limited and if you’re on a plane, sometimes they don’t offer food depending on the length of the flight, so snacks are a big must have. Something small like granola bars or chips are your best bet because you never know how long it will take to get from point A to point B and have a bite to eat! Also, be a good sport and carry extras because there will always be a person that’s going to ask for some.
Almost a given even nowadays especially if you’re not going on a trip. Having a phone charger is essential since your phone is the easiest way to get directions and stay connected to everyone when you’re out and about. I’m the kind of person that gets really anxious when my phone starts to die, so I carry two external chargers. Yup. Plus, we all know that you want to send all those Snaps to your story and you don’t want your phone to die.
Clean Care Box
You know you like Target, well they had an exclusive Clean Care Box by Cottonelle only available there. Boxes of goodies are all the rage right now and the Clean Care Box is just as great. Let’s be honest, when we travel we encounter a bunch of germs and icky places. The Clean Care Box has toiletries and other essentials that will be needed, regardless if you’re traveling on car or plane! This box is packed with things that help unwind free of any gunk.
The box includes Cottonelle Clean Care Bath Tissue which is and its CleanRipple texture is designed to clean better! This texture is designed for this, so you won’t be stressed with messes. They’re unscented and gentle so you can keep them with you even in enclosed spaces! If you like to keep a fresh face after a long day, the box has Kleenex Facial Cleansing Wipes, which is a textured fabric with a gentle cleanser (also alcohol free and moistened) that will keep you feeling clean after a long travel day. What’s even more great about them is that they have pro-vitamin complex, which gives you the feeling of a freshly washed face but with quick dry performance! They’re also unscented so you don’t have to worry about an overwhelming scent lingering!
The Clean Care Box also contains a Kleenex Facial Tissue, Skinfix Ultra Rich Hand Cream, Skinfix Lip Repair Balm (probably my favorite thing in the box), and a delicate sponge by The Bathery! It helped me feel clean after long days of touching unknown things and dealing with all these outside stresses. It’s so useful and things you NEED but might forget!
Whether it is good friends or an adventurous spirit when traveling solo, having good vibes is key to making any trip extra special. Traveling is always a toss up. Sometimes your plans are perfect but sometimes the unexpected happens. Just having fun and going with the flow can make every situation work out. Sometimes the unexpected just works out better, so keep an open mind and just enjoy the fact that you’re already out.
