Do your summer plans include boarding a plane? If so, you might be interested in the recent headline that airlines are trying to standardize and shrink the size of an accepted carry on bag. The new rules haven't been implemented by major U.S. carriers yet but if they do we'll all want to pack a lot smarter - essentials only in that carry on!
The fear of a smaller carry on got us thinking about our essentials list. That's why we loved this article we recently came across on travel hacks for packing. You can see the whole list here and see our faves below...
#6 - If you’re traveling with a lot of jewelry, use a days-of-the-week pill container to keep track of it. -- Our super savvy customers have been doing this for awhile
#7 - Glasses cases can double as a carrying case for iPhone chargers. -- Style Rx pill box case is also perfect for this
#16 - Bring several pairs of underwear in your carry-on just in case your luggage ends up lost. -- Big believer in this one. We'd say throw in a swimsuit too so the first few days of your tropical vacation aren't spent shopping for a new, semi-flattering one
#20 - If you forget the outlet plug-in for your phone charger, check the back of the TV in your hotel room. There’s usually a USB port which will allow you to charge. -- We never knew this one. Great idea.
#23 - Scan your passport, ID and itinerary and email it to yourself in case of theft or loss. -- Just don't lose your phone too!
