What’s in My Carry-On Bag?

Blog Post Header

I just got home from an overnight trip to Tampa and will be leaving tomorrow for yet another adventure to Tuscaloosa.

One of the most important things you’ll bring on your trip is your carry-on bag. This is the bag that stays by your side and has whatever you could need in it. For my carry on bag, I typically use a backpack (more specifically, an Under Armor Storm 1 backpack). These are on the more expensive side but fit so much in them.

When packing my carry-on, I like to ask myself “what could I possibly need during my flight?” This is what I have packed right now:

  • Laptop
  • Phone
  • Portable chargers
  • Charging cords (laptop, phone, portable chargers)
  • Book
  • Headphones
  • Socks (ALWAYS bring socks!)
  • Gum
  • Neck pillow
  • Snacks
  • Sudafed/Afrin
  • Change of clothes
  • Sunglasses
  • Water
  • Wallet (credit cards & cash!)
  • ID
  • Lotion & body spray
  • Mini emergency kit

You never know what will happen on your flight, but it’s smart to have things handy in case you need them! Obviously what you pack depends on where you’re going and is different for everyone, but these are just suggestions for a short trip.

Happy travels!
