It’s all about the essentials, especially in the professional world. A destination trip, or conference is not the time to realize you have forgotten something. It’s not worth the stress or energy of trying to solve the problem. So, in efforts to help business women everywhere avoid this problem we have created the ultimate, business trip packing list. Even better, we have put together a list of items that can all be purchased in one place, Amazon.
1. Multipurpose Phone Charger
A spare phone charger is a must, leave one in your hotel room at all times and bring one with you on the go. Since you know you will most likely be adjusting your makeup and recharging your phone throughout the day, why not kill two birds with one stone? With this portable phone charger, you have one less thing you have to pack – a mini makeup mirror for your purse.
2. Hand Held Mini Washing Machine
Stains will happen, you might as well be prepared in advanced. A professional setting is one place where you always want to be looking well dressed and put together. A coffee stain on a white button down can make it challenging to do so. The spill problem solved with this hand held cleaning device, and hey, if you don’t end up needing it, kudos to you.
3. Luggage Organizers
Often for business trips, it is necessary to go straight from the airport or car to the meeting or event. Bringing along easy to carry and properly organized luggage can save you from that “couldn’t find my hair brush” “10 minutes late to the first meeting” disaster. Packing cubes are the organized traveler’s ultimate partner.
4. Shoe Bags
You probably saw this one coming. The last thing you want is for your packed shoes to be wrinkling your nicely pressed business clothes during travel. Keep shoes organized, and keep clothes clean and pressed by using shoe bags. This is also a great way to ensure that you don’t forget any shoes.
5. Portable Coffee Maker
Calling all coffee lovers. Save some time in the morning by bringing your own portable coffee maker – no need to run to the lobby for coffee before your meeting, make it quickly and easily right from your hotel room!
There you have it ladies. This business trip packing list is certain to help you pack for success, remember the essentials, and organize like a champion. Don’t forget, the best tip for packing in general is to pack in advance. No one ever remembered all of the essentials by packing in total mayhem.
