L On-the-Go! Packing Essentials, Part One.

What’s in my (Lululemon) bag: laptop, sunnies, scarf, sanitizing wipes, hand sanitizer, Advil, inhaler, gum, headphones, snacks, wallet, gum, chapstick, business cards, book, iPad mini and liquids

I hate packing. I really do. There’s no rational reason behind it because in the grand scheme of things, it’s really not a big deal. I’m heading to Colorado for work/fun and here I’ll share my packing essentials. Due to all the luggage fees, I tend to stuff all the things I need into two carry-on bags. My “purse” or “under the seat” item contains all my immediate essentials for the plane ride. Here’s what I bring!

My “Under the Seat” Carry-on Contains:

  • Laptop/wireless mouse
  • Headphones
  • Sunnies (for the “please don’t talk to me” nap time)
  • Advil (in case of too many bubbles)
  • Wet ones sanitizing wipes and hand sanitizer – thanks to my sister, I now carry these in my bag everywhere! I immediately wipe down the surfaces that I touch on the plane (tray table, arm rests, etc) so I will not get sick! Thanks J for turning me into a germ-a-phobe, too.
  • Vinyasa scarf (the best purchase from Lulu ever! I use it as a scarf, obv, but you can unsnap it and use it as a blanket, towel, shawl, etc – the options are endless and it’s come in handy many times over)
  • Gum (for a mouth refresh)
  • Snacks (a must! As a veg, I am always afraid of my protein options so I bring lots of granola/energy bars that are high in the prots: Builder’s bar, bare naked granola bar, Kind bar)
  • Book (this one is about cadaver research so it’s sure to be a deterrent to any chatty seat mates)
  • iPad mini (for the boredom)
  • Liquids, wallet, business cards (self-explanatory)
  • Water bottle! (Not pictured, but I literally bring a refillable water bottle EVERYWHERE)

This airport wifi is a little wonky, so stay tuned for part deux: the roller bag carry-on. πŸ˜‰

  1. You’ll have to tell me how that book is..I am having the HARDEST time getting through my current books…I hate not finishing any… but maybe the prospect of a really good one will help me push trough them!

    ps-have a safe flight!


  2. Your cadaver book may thwart some but in light of recent national heath care related events a face mask does the trick 100% of the time. You may inadvertently be carted of by the CDC for questioning but then you’d have more cool things to write about here on your blog. πŸ˜€
