Traveling the world doesn’t necessarily mean emptying your savings account. Curious about how to explore on a budget without skimping on the basics?
I was there!
That’s why I’ve put together this list of 7 travel essentials that I’ve personally purchased and loved, all without breaking the bank. These items have greatly improved my travel, and I bet they will do the same for you.
1. Travel bag
I bought this suitcase (large size in peacock blue) last year and it has been one of my favorite purchases all year! It’s the perfect size for my personal carry-on items. I used this backpack exclusively for a long weekend trip.
The best part? It won’t break the bank!
2. Travel toiletry bag
One of my best friends influenced me to buy this Travel toiletry bag About 4 years ago and I still love it! It carries all my products and is cute too!
Personally, I have the largest size in light pink.
3. Travel pill organizer
I like this simple Travel pill organizers. I use one for my medication and the other to keep my jewelry in one place. Comes in a pack of 3. Keep one in your wallet, one in your car, and set aside one for travel!
4. Compressed packing cubes
I bought this exact one Compressed packing cubes 6 months ago. It’s the secret that made me able to travel to Hawaii for two weeks in a carry-on! I honestly wonder how I went without these packing cubes for so long. It’s a must-have for anyone who only wants to bring a carry-on.
5. Travel size bottles
I have naturally curly hair, which can only mean one thing – I use a lot of hair products! Seriously, I’m a little embarrassed to admit how many different gels, creams, and products I use for my curly hair.
This means traveling with liquids can be a hassle…that’s why I got this TSA approved containers. I love them, end of story.
6. Portable charger
Between camping with our family and attending crowded conferences, I Need a Portable charger Bank for my phone and devices. This 2-pack is budget friendly and small enough to fit in your purse or small backpack pocket. I always bring this charger with me when I travel.
7. The fourth questioner
I don’t know about you, but I tend to forget to drink water or stay hydrated when I travel. When I deviate from my normal routine, my healthy habits (like getting enough water) go away.
I love tossing in a few of these Fourth questioner Packed in my bag. They help me stay hydrated while I’m outside.
And there you have it – my top 7 travel essentials that have made my trips smoother, more organized, and, let’s be real, a whole lot more fun without spending a ton of money.
Whether you’re on the road for a weekend getaway or embarking on a longer trip, remember that smart packing and a few basic essentials can make a big difference.
