Packing for many people is completely overwhelming. Over the years I have become better and better at making sure I only pack the essentials. I always make lists, and sort my things in advance of packing them in my bag. The feeling of leaving something behind doesn’t usually stress me out too much.
I just got back from a weekend getaway in Quebec City and was thinking this is the perfect time to share how I stay organized on the road.
I recently saw these see-through bags by a company named “TRUFFLE” based in San Francisco. Immediately I fell in love with the TSA-friendly pouch as they really put the average Ziploc to shame. The adorable colors and heavy duty materials help you stay organized with ease.
When I go on short getaways I will usually only bring a purse and a carry-on. I have one small rolling suitcase (that fits the TSA dimensions) and one tote/backpack I will use as my personal item. In my backpack I will keep my camera equipment and personal belongings as I will have this with me while I am in my seat on the plane.
The TRUFFLE Clarity Pouch is perfect bag to separate small items like my passport, credit cards, lip balm, bandaids, hair ties and a compact. I also bought the TRUFFLE Document Case for all of my booking references, writing utensils, extra paper and my notebook.
I love being able to see what is inside the bags allowing me to grab what I need quickly. Because of the size of the TRUFFLE Clutch and Small Clarity Pouch I can easily transfer them over to a purse if need be. They also fit easily in the plane pouch while I am in the air. Because of this, I can easily settle in for a long-haul flight with everything I need.
FT. PONYTAIL MAIL
I also wanted to take this post to point out another one of my recent obsessions – PONYTAIL MAIL. A girl friend of mine recently started her own company making these incredibly adorable ponytails. As someone who is constantly searching for an elastic this subscription is perfect for me. I bring these little guys with me everywhere because they are not only gentle on my hair but they are aesthetically pleasing.
The company is based in Toronto is a true example of entrepreneurship. I cannot wait to tell you more about this amazing company in a future post!
