Carry On Must Haves while Traveling

By  | Last Updated:  

Since all our family lives in other areas, we do a fair amount of traveling each year. Because of this, I’ve got it all down to a science when we hit the road. Especially since we have Sam traveling too, there isn’t room for error. I don’t want to forget something necessary and create a hassle. The Moms Check In crew is gathering up our best travel tips today — we’re talking about the must have items for our carry-on bags. Before you head out on your next trip, check out our lists for yourself. Happy trails!

Carry On Must Haves when Traveling

Amanda @ It’s a Fabulous Life: My carry-on bag has changed a bit over the years from when I would travel with an infant and then a toddler. Now that my son is older, I get to pack a little lighter. My must haves include: – A book to read – Gum – A snack (my son is in the won’t-ever-stop-eating-because-he’s-a-bottomless-pit phase) – Portable charger for my phone (and one that will fit the iPad or his DS) – Noise canceling headphones (perfect to listen to music or just to wear if you have a noisy flight and want to nap!).

Stephanie @ Spaceships and Laser Beams: I do a fair amount of traveling, so over the years, I have perfected my carry-on must-haves. These are the items that I never leave home without when traveling and I always keep with me: wallet + all id/credit/debit cards, medicine, laptop, earbuds (for their tvs), water + healthy snack (because airlines have restricted what they serve), jacket or lightweight blanket (it can get cold), one change of clothes.

Jenni @ Sweet Pennies from Heaven: I haven’t traveled a ton, but I have traveled enough to know what are must-have items in my carry-on. I always have… a small cross body bag with wallet, cash, debit card and ID iPad with earbuds allergy/sinus medication/Sudafed (for my ears), extra set of clothing, gum/mints/cough drops, phone charger or backup battery juice pack, small pack of wet wipes, pocket size anti-bacterial gel, travel sized deodorant.

While all of our carry on bags differ a little bit, we all have one thing in common – we all pack a travel size bottle of Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus. This stuff is amazing at getting rid of any static cling, smoothing out wrinkles (so you don’t look like you have been traveling all day!) and it has a fresh clean scent. Trust me and almost 1,000 people who have submitted their reviews online. Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus is amazing!

Stephanie is in love with a boy named Sam. He has taught her that it's okay to jump first and look later, to wear a dirty shirt to the park and to decide that today is a good day to take a nap in your rubber boots. She hangs out here blogging at Spaceships and Laser Beams and at our printable party shop on Etsy.
