How To Pack Like A Pro
Picture this. It’s 8PM and you just got to the airport for your 9PM flight to Paris. You're the last one to get to your gate and suddenly realize that you can't find your passport! You look up only to see the airport security at the gate glaring at you (you know how impatient New Yorkers can be)! After bending down and taking everything out of the bag, you find your passport at the bottom! Now your belongings are scattered across the dirty airport floor and you have to quickly stuff everything back in your bag. This inconvenience hits home, am I right?!
It doesn't get more frustrating than an unorganized bag in a hectic situation. Well ladies, here are four tips to make sure that you can successfully organize your Go Dash Dot bag for your next adventure!
Make a list
When packing a bag for any type trip, a packing list is simply the way to go. Start a day or two before you leave so you can add as you remember things. It’s the only foolproof way to NOT forget anything. (Don’t lie, we've all had to make an emergency CVS run for a toothbrush)
Organize, organize, organize
Lay out everything on the floor and organize by order of importance and when you will need each item, the Weekender 2 will handle the rest! Slip your passport and flight ticket into the back snap pocket so you’re ready and you won’t hold up security lines, you’re welcome. :) For us hard workers, it was imperative that we bring our computers. Place any size laptop into the velcro closure padded laptop compartment (which also has room to store your charger). Lastly, your wallet and keys need a secure zipped pocket in your bag, which the weekender 2 has as well!
Pack the unnecessary, necessary items
Now we're onto the less important, important items, which includes anything that you and your family may need for the big travel day: Diapers, snacks, toys, books, maybe a flask ...;).Place your beverage of choice in the bottle holder, snacks in the drawstring pouch, and the rest can easily fit in the main section of the bag. And don’t worry about spills or germs, these travel bags are 100% machine washable.
Zip it up
Finally, we come to the most important part of the packing process and that is making sure all our stuff is secure. The top zip closure on the tote does just that!
And one more thing, our Weekender 2 also comes with an pocket that converts to a trolleyt sleeve to keep all your stuff together and in one hand!
Whether you're traveling via plane, car, or train, these four tips will ensure a safe and efficient travel experience so there are no heart attacks when you're shuffling to find your passport at the last minute on your way to Paris.
