Planning a getaway? Before you fly, check out these 11 Things to Not be caught without before Your Next Flight!
These Carry On Must Haves will ensure you arrive at your final destination feeling spunky, refreshed, and photo-ready! 🙂
Are you ready to pack your Carry On bag?
1 – Ziploc Bags to hold your personal belongings. A flight attendant once said that the seat back pockets don’t always get sanitized between flights. Have you ever wondered what other people put in their seat back pockets? Let’s all try not to think about the dirty diapers and used tissues. 🙂
2 – Hand Sanitizer, because you know… used tissues and diapers! 😉 You may also want to consider “a Ziploc bag with disinfectant wipes for the seats, bathrooms, hotels, tourist attractions.” Thanks for frugal friend Wendy for sharing!
3 – Chewing Gum to help your ears stay open during take-off and landing.
4 – Portable Music and Earbuds or Ear Plugs. It’s always nice to sit back and relax with your favorite tunes or a little quiet time during your flight.
5 – Kindle App, Magazines, Books, etc. Just in case you run out of in-flight entertainment provided by the airline, having something fun that you’ve packed to read can be a real lifesaver.
6 – Compact Lipstick Size Phone / Tablet Chargers. Are you concerned about using up all your battery juice? Conveniently charge your phone or tablet without having to rely on a power outlet! Unless you fly business class, you won’t usually have the ability to plugin to charge your devices, so these portable charges are the perfect pocket-sized solution!
7 – Small Snacks and a Water Bottle. Make sure to purchase a water bottle at the airport before you board your flight, because traveling is a sure way to get dehydrated. You’ll never regret packing some yummy snacks in your carry on, too. You’ll be ready when those munchie attacks come on while you’re sky high!
8 – A Comfortable Travel Pillow. Skip the not-too-comfy airline provided pillows, and bring your own comfy travel pillow instead! Getting good rest during your flight will have you all bright-eyed and ready to go when you arrive at your final destination!
9 – Eye Mask. Ever try closing your eyes for a nap on a bright sunny day? When you’re flying above the clouds, that bright sunlight is sure to blaze right through your closed eyelids, so you take along that eye mask for some nice blackout snooze time!
10 – Comfortable Fluffy Socks. Nothing beats luxurious, fluffy socks, right? Not only are they fun at home, but they’re fabulous and SO cozy on a long flight, too!
11 – A little Makeup to freshen up before you land. Whether or not you feel great, you want to look Great!!
