Travel Essentials

They say travel is often about the journey, not the destination, but if that’s the case why not make getting there as easy and comfortable as possible?  Whether you’re heading out on a faraway spring break, road tripping with the family or flying out for a business jaunt, these travel essentials from MySears will make sure both the journey and the actual vacay are a breeze.

One user bought this bag for her 10-year-old daughter and is very glad she did.  “The zippers look secure and when she’s not using the straps she can tuck them away,” she said.  “This backpack not only looks sharp, but is well worth the money!”

Phase 10 Masters Edition Card Game in a Tin – $12

Phase 10 Masters Edition Card Game in a TinOne of the best parts of many family vacations is the fun you can have playing board games, and MySears users say that Phase 10 is the perfect portable card game.

“It is SO ADDICTIVE! We usually get together in kind of a large group so it takes us hours to play. We were in Costa Rica this past summer on a mission trip and we had a 10-man game going.”  According to the Phase 10 die-hards on MySears, this game can keep the fun going for hours, and is small enough to use up little precious space in your luggage.
