Traveling This Week? 5 Essentials for Your Must-Pack List

Travel essentials for your must-pack list including the Style Rx designer pill box case

Nearly everyone we know seems to be headed elsewhere for Thanksgiving this year. And for many of them that means getting on a plane to their far-flung destinations. But we all know air travel has become a tad less glamorous in recent years, and with so many set to travel it's critical to think ahead and plan for the nearly unavoidable hiccups that come with travel this time of year.

That's why we dug up an old article on travel hacks for packing, dusted it off and are sharing with you our fave ways to pack for comfort, style and the unpredictable.

#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!
