My Carry-On Essentials

Next week Alex & I are headed to Indiana to visit family. It's only for three days, which means we won't pack too much. However, there are always a few things that I always take with me - no matter how long I'm staying somewhere. Every time I fly I tend to bring the same carry-on items with me and they have since become my essentials. After years of perfecting the ultimate list, I've whittled it down to the bare bones.

I hate bringing too much stuff just as much as I hate digging through luggage for things that I need in a hurry. Therefore having a list of essential carry-ons is a must for me. As for the carry-on bag, I tend to bring my small mint backpack. It's perfect and compact and the colour makes it really easy in case I get lost in a crowd and Alex has to find me. I usually just pack a small purse in my luggage to use during the duration of my trip. Though honestly, there's been a lot of times where I just use my backpack!

  • Wallet - for easy access to IDs, cash, etc.
  • iPhone & Charger - with flight app for tickets
  • Digital Camera - sometimes I'll bring my compact tripod
  • Small Pack of Tissues - because if I don't, I'll need them
  • Kindle e-reader - or one of the current books I'm reading
  • Snacks - like sunflower seeds, dried fruit or cheddar bunnies
  • Sunglasses - because I always need them once I land
  • NYX all-over balm - great for rescuing dry skin
  • Chewing Gum - for take-offs and landings
  • Face Wipes - to wipe of airplane goo ;)
Is there anything else that you tend to bring for your carry-on? Is there anything that you think I'm missing? Let me know in the comments below!
