What’s in my Ziplock Bag?

Posted on by Gigi in Packing 6 Comments

It’s that time of year, kids are out of school or home from school, time for vacation, whether it is a family trip, or a quick weekend with someone special or a girls weekend away it is that jet-setting time of year. I always try and do carry on luggage, between the astronomical baggage fees, weight restrictions, and the thought of my bag getting lost, that is enough motivation for figuring out the perfect “carry on” wardrobe. The clothing I have covered, it is the ziplock baggie that is causing me grief. This summer I am determined to have the perfect ziplock packed and ready to go with a moments notice. I’m a girl who loves potions and lotions so I need items that can work double time.

These are my absolute musts for my ziplock baggie:

My Baggie

I have small little containers that I fill with my products, and this is a good source for travel size products, all travel sizes.

I always check my carrier for any luggage restrictions that I may not be aware of, I find things are always changing, and it does not hurt to check TSA.

Do you have travel plans?
