- Travel Cubes.
http://amzn.to/2rHWUUa I love travel cubes because they allow me to plan ahead and pack some essentials. This is not easy for me as I tend to do things the last minute. I have been using Eagle Creek size medium for several years and they still look new.I pack my essentials like undergarments, pajamas, allergy pillow cover, and toiletries a week ahead in one cube. Beachwear, towel, and sunscreen for warm weather in another. For colder weather gloves, thermals, sweater and jacket( unless I wear it during travel) A few days ahead I roll my shirts for easy viewing in another cube. I usually try to pack dresses and pants as flat as possible on top of the cubes to avoid wrinkling.
When I arrive at my destination I hang up the dresses and pants. I place the packing cubes in drawers without the need to take everything out. It keeps my things clean and organized.
2)The Demi Hugger. http://amzn.to/2rIbXNw It allows me to carry additional items on my rolling suitcase. I usually use a large bag or purse to hold things I can not be without: medications, large scarf if the plane gets cold, change of cloths, snacks, cell phone, and tablet. I can usually use a small carry-on suitcase with my large bag (that fits under the seat) secured on top with the Demi Hugger, eliminating the need to check luggage which saves me time and money. Oops! I almost forgot to tell you that I fold or roll my Demi Hugger and use it as a back or neck rest when flying.
3) Sanitizing Hand Wipes and Disinfectant Wipes.I wipe the tray table on the plane and remote control and light switches at the hotel. Studies have shown the remote and light switches to be the dirtiest things in a hotel room.
