Some travel organizers are only made for saving space, some only for keeping organized BUT the best of them are for both! Well, we've made a list of our fave accessories to keep you sane while traveling. Try out these goodies and let us know what you think.
5 Reasons Why Travel Organizers Rock
Packing 101: When going on a trip, gathering the things you need and putting them directly in your suitcase is a big no-no. You need functional packing accessories that will help you achieve peace of mind when traveling - knowing that all your essentials are kept perfectly safe in your suitcase. So, if you’re not yet totally convinced as to why you need travel organizers, these reasons might change your mind entirely:
1. Makes anyone a packing PRO. #YesYou
Travel organizers may come in various shapes, sizes, and colors BUT they mainly do one thing - that is, keep you organized (duh). You can use these heaven-sent travel packing accessories for organizing everything. From your documents, keys, toys, and other small loose items to undies, socks, shirts, dresses, bedding, and more! Yes, even if you're an organizing newbie, you can still pack like a total champ with these goodies.
2. Pack MORE than you think.
Never leave any important item behind just because it won't fit in the suitcase. If that's usually the case when you pack, you just need a little help with organizing your things. Travel organizers will allow you to fit more into your bag. They usually compress your things together and you can make use of the empty gap spaces in the luggage for other things. #overpackerproblems
3. No worries about safety!
Other than keeping you organized for your trips, travel organizers also protect the items inside your bag. Properly storing dirty, sharp, leaking, or other potentially damaging objects in your suitcase will help reduce the risk of stained or broken items.
4. Organized on the go? Yes please.
Love road trips? Well, not to worry, our favorite travel organizers will keep your essentials perfectly organized even if you're on the move. Whether you're going on a long car ride or going on an RV camping trip, these items will be your new travel buddies!
5. No travel, no problem!
The best travel organizers are those that are super versatile. If you can use them to organize at home (when you're not traveling), then that means you've hit the jackpot! More uses = more ROI for you, right?? Exhibit A: Our Medium Cube as a pregnancy clothes storage bag ((;

Cute Organizers You Definitely Need for Your Trip
Do you remember your life before these cute travel accessories came into your life? Well, if you haven’t used them yet, you probably wouldn’t know what it’s like. And that’s exactly why we’re making this list of top travel packing organizers available to you. Make sure to try out some of them for your next trip if you haven’t already.
1. Chic & Clear Packing Cubes
Packing cubes, without a doubt, are the lead stars of the travel organizer world! Just look at those beautiful cubes of goodness 🤩
So what makes EzPacking cubes a clear winner? Let us count the reasons why: the see-through, transparent design, the structured exterior, fun colors to choose from, different sizes / sets to try out... and a LOT more! Trust us when we say that these packing cubes are definitely game changers. Living out of your suitcase when traveling? You can use these cubes as traveling drawers and stay organized all throughout your trip!
2. Quart Size Bag (TSA Friendly!)
It's clear, it's quart size, it's handy for TSA inspection... Yup, it's our TSA-friendly toiletry bag! Now tell us, why would you opt for a flimsy ziplock when you can go for this sturdy pouch instead?? Plus, it fits up to 10 travel-size toiletries and has durable zippers for extra assurance that your liquids won't spill out into your other items.
Pro Tip: Bring along some suction cup hooks in your toiletry bag for hanging things. Bathrooms usually have a lot of mirrors but not enough hooks to hang things. Also, use a small funnel when transferring liquids from full-size bottles to travel size containers to avoid spills.
3. Cadence Capsule Jars
These Cadence 'capsule' style containers are a pretty alternative to your regular 3 oz bottles. You know us, we're all about aesthetic but functional products! Each magnetic capsule can fit up to 0.56 ounces of creams, liquids or gels. You can mix and match different capsules to build your own functional toiletry stash. Then pack them into your very own Quart Size Bag (which fits up to 12 capsules total).
4. "Oh-So-Pretty" Makeup Bag
**Thanks to Livi for this gorgeous photo!
Organize your travel makeup must haves in this fab makeup pouch! Things that make you feel pretty deserve to be organized in a beautiful pouch as well, agree?? Aside from the handy clear design, this cosmetic bag is super easy to clean - just use a wet wipe or clean cloth to remove any stains or leaks.
5. Packable Tote
Is it a tote bag? Is it a backpack? It's actually both! The Notabag is a 2-in-1 convertible bag that can be folded into a hand-sized pouch. Choose from lots of fun colors such as Olive, Cornflower, Mustard and more! Super convenient for when you love going shopping when traveling. Plus, it's actually cute and stylish (for a tote bag).
6. Bright Folder Envelope
Whenever you’re traveling, it's important to have digital and printed copies of all your important files. Use a cute (ideally bright / printed) envelope for safekeeping! Make sure it's waterproof and has a snap closure (or zipper) so you won't lose all your important information.
7. Wires and Cable Pouch
Don't let your cables get tangled up! This beautiful organizer pouch from Native Union is a classy way to keep your cords neat and tidy. It has different compartments and elastic loops so you can organize all your tech stuff. It could easily fit all your essentials and more!

9. Travel Shoe Bag
Keep the dirty soles of your shoes away from your clean clothes by using a travel shoe bag, like this one. This shoe pouch is very useful especially if you don't have the luxury of time to wash or touch them up before your trip. Aside from keeping your essentials free from your shoes’ dust and dirt, this bag can be easily washed so you can reuse it anytime.
10. Dry Bag
If your adventures involve a lot of water, investing in a durable dry bag is a MUST. This foldable dry bag from Savvy Outdoors is currently our fave! It meets all our criteria for a dry bag: compact, lightweight, waterproof (of course!), and comes in cute colors (like lavender).
11. Collapsible Travel Cup
Coffee? Tea? Or this Stojo Collapsible Cup? Whether you love drinking coffee on the go or think water is key, this collapsible cup will be your new travel buddy.

13. RFID Travel Wallet
Trade your regular wallet with this 'travel' compatible wallet instead! It's compact, lightweight and really cute too. It has 5 credit card slots, 1 ID window and 2 bill compartments. Since it's RFID blocking, you don't need to worry about your card info being stolen while you're out and about.
Pro Tip: Do a little wallet cleaning before leaving for your trip! Remove any unnecessary trash, receipts, old cards, etc. from your wallet to lighten your load and free up some space.
14. Fanny Pack
Yes, fanny packs are back and just perfect for travel! It's the ideal in-between if you just don't want to carry a huge backpack or a tote bag. This one from Herschel is a definite fave!

Pro Tip: Leave your expensive jewelry at home! You can wear a cheap silicone wedding ring instead of your wedding ring when you’re traveling. Then bring your staple earrings and necklace, and pack the rest of your lesser-priced jewelry in its own organizer.
16. Travel Scarf with Hidden Pocket
If you’re traveling to a place with common cases of theft and/or pickpocketing, using travel organizers with hidden pockets will be very useful. There’s this infinity scarf with hidden pocket.
