Packing for a trip doesn't have to be a hassle. There are travel-friendly versions of just about everything you use on a daily basis. If you take the time to put together a collection of handy travel gear before you head off, you won't have to rush around trying to decide what to bring. From pillows to portable power supplies, the accessories available at Sears are designed to make your next trip as stress-free as possible.
Baggage can add more expense to your trip than you would expect. With airlines raising prices for checked bags all the time, it's important to get as many of your belongings into as small a space as possible. Packing full-sized bottles of shampoo, body wash and other toiletries takes up a lot of room in your luggage that could be used for other things. Instead of trying to make everything fit, invest in travel-sized versions of the products you love and pack them into toiletry bags. These bags give you several compartments in which to organize toiletries and personal hygiene items. Choosing an eye-catching style from Rockland or Travelon lets you instantly recognize which bag is yours.
Packing sunscreen along with your toiletries is a good idea if you're headed to the beach. Whether it's for spring break or a warm-weather retreat in the middle of winter, you want to make the most of your vacation. Along with practical accessories such as key cases and a passport wallet, be sure to take along travel beach towels for the whole family. Available in styles that appeal to both kids and adults, these brightly colored travel accessories add fun to your trip.
Though you always hope your trip will go smoothly, you should be prepared for the unexpected. If a flight gets delayed, a family member gets sick or your car breaks down, you'll need a few emergency travel items on hand to remedy the problem. Driving to a faraway destination puts strain on your car, so be sure to pack extra oil and other fluids to keep everything running smoothly. A lock for your steering wheel ensures that only you can access the car and our selection of straps and tie downs keeps boats, bikes and other heavy items secured to the outside of the vehicle. Put together a kit of emergency items as part of your routine trip preparations so you never have to worry about potential mishaps.
Don't get caught without essential travel gear on your next trip out of town. Make sure you have a well-stocked emergency kit and toiletry bag before you go so that you have everything you need close at hand. Visit Sears the next time you're ready to travel and you'll find all the necessities in one place.
