Around this time, before a trip, I’m always looking for the right bag to bring. It’s been sort of a pre-vacation tradition but even I have to admit, I have no reason to do that this time around. I’m still really happy with a Fossil crossbody I bought a few trips ago plus I was lucky enough to score a mini LeSportsac bag from the gals at Best Friends’ Guide during one of their recent giveaways. So I’m pretty good in that department.
There are, though, a few things I’d like to purchase before I leave. (This post also serves as a great reminder for me to get a move-on as far as pre-packing goes!)
A pair of Converse: These have been my go-to sneaker for 10 years plus. They last SO long, but my last pair is really on its way out. I’m a stickler for flip flops in Florida but it can get a little chilly during the evenings and since I’ll be coming from a colder climate in New York, wearing sneakers on the plane is kind of a must.
Instax Mini Film: It was a blast to use my Instax camera during our trip in March, and I can’t wait to do it again. (This time with Christmas decorations!) I have to make sure I have film since I go through these pretty quickly. (Even when I’m really thinking about what pictures I’m taking too.) It’s pretty great I can get these in the mail in 2 days since I have an Amazon Prime account.
Sunglasses: I am the worst at taking care of my sunglasses. This is why I go for cheap. (Especially if they end up breaking.) So it’s about time I gave up my scratched pair and got new ones.
Portable Charger: Even though I did so much better last trip balancing my phone time with real time, I was still scrambling to find an open outlet ANYWHERE at a few points. It just got old and annoying. After asking around for some recommendations (thanks to everyone who weighed in on Twitter!), I went with the EZO Battery Pack after At Disney Again mentioned he favored EZO products. (It’s different than the original one I wanted but I needed it to be delivered in two days.)
Four things for an almost four-day weekend? I’d say that’s pretty good.
Do you always find yourself scrambling to buy things before trips? I’m not alone right?
