Carry On Must Haves When Traveling
It’s getting to be the busiest time of year – and everyone will be traveling for the holidays to be with family and friends. Usually, more often than not, we all forget something super important OR we’ve packed it…but it’s in our checked bags. Packing your carry on bags the right way, can relieve a whole lot of stress. Especially if you’re traveling with kiddos!
Our Moms Check In moms are talking about our must haves for carry on bags when traveling. We’d love to hear your tips too. Drop us a comment below or chat with us on social media using the hashtag #MomsCheckIn and #DontPackWrinkles!
These are our our personal carry on must have lists when we travel…
“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
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!)“

“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
earbuds (for their tvs)
water + healthy snack (because airlines have restricted what they serve)
jacket or lightweight blanket (it can get cold)
1 change of clothes“

“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
phone charger or backup battery juice pack
small pack of wet wipes
pocket size anti-bac
travel sized deodorant“

I know that everyone packs their travel bags a little different, but one thing is for sure! No one wants to look like a wrinkled up mess when they arrive at their destination! Right?!?! — and who has time to iron everything in their suitcase?
We all love our Downey Wrinkle Releaser Plus. Makes smoothing out the wrinkles such a breeze AND it gets rid of that awful static cling. This time of year is really bad for it anyway! Blah! If you’ve never tried it check out the almost 1,000 people who have submitted their reviews online. It’s amazing stuff! I love that they have the 3 oz. size bottles of the Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus because it meets airline standards!
