I can't count how many times I've forgotten to include a must-have item in my travels. Had I been at home, these items would've been at my fingertips, so how in the world do I forget to pack them?! I take these items and their purpose in my daily life for granted, so when I plan a trip, they're not the first things on my "must pack" list. Extra clothes, cash, and other travel necessities seem to top that list. Until now.

By adhering to these three simple guidelines, not only are my daily must-have items included, but they're impeccably organized, too!

1.      Gather all essential items in one big pile, and then separate them into smaller piles according to purpose: electronics, financial, toiletries, etc. Designate a case or pouch for each of those individual piles. You can never have enough bags in your bag! They're easier to find than the pair of rogue earbuds wrapped around a hairbrush swimming at the very bottom of your suitcase. 

2.      Speaking of the bottom, that's where you should put the stuff you won't need immediately upon arrival or even while en route. Shoes and clothes go on the bottom; credit cards and reading glasses go on top.

3.      Compartmentalizing is key. If your bag or suitcase doesn't come equipped with side pockets and interior nooks, is it even worth taking? All the extra storage options are perfect for easy access to your phone, gum, photo ID, etc. Consider upgrading your luggage if you're missing out on these conveniences. You'll get more bang for your bag!
