Almost a month ago I announced that not only had I gotten a promotion at work, but that I was in the process of relocating to Nashville! Well I’ve officially signed my lease and have been flying back and forth these past few weeks between Houston and Nashville. My lease in Houston isn’t technically up until mid-September and my lease in Nashville starts in mid-August so I have time to purge and pack up my current apartment before the big move.
In the meantime, in between time I’m earning all the airline miles and hotel points. In fact, it feels like I’m on a flight every week and I think I might have mastered my packing list for these work trips. I’ve found most, if not all of these things on Amazon and since it’s Prime Day I figured it’d be nice to share them with you in case you want to scoop them up while they’re part of the sale!
First things first. I know I mentioned in the previous post that I usually fly with my 21-inch carry-on as my “big suitcase”…well that lasted all of one trip. One of the first things I purchased for my week-long trips was a bigger suitcase. I snagged this 28-inch one by the same brand and it changed the game for me! I can literally throw everything except my gadgets in there and I have more than enough room for it all. The separate compartments and dirty clothes bag are a nice addition as well. I still keep my clothes in the packing cubes I’ve had for five years (these were probably one of my best travel investments), but it’s nice to be able to separate things in my suitcase even more!
I also make sure to throw one of my Amazon Firesticks in my suitcase. Now the hotel does allow me to log into my Netflix and YouTube account from the TV in the room, but I have shows on other streaming platforms that I like to watch and it’s so easy to connect the streaming device to their Wi-Fi and I’m good to go!
These next few suggestions are comfort ones. All that flying can be exhausting, especially when I’m on a red-eye to make it to the office for a Monday morning and coffee helps, but so does Liquid IV! It’s hydrating and gives me that boost of energy I like. I really like the passionfruit flavor and it’s the right amount of sweetness for my 30oz water cup. I also like to pack a pair of slippers because I don’t like to walk around barefoot and don’t always want to wear socks in the room or put on a pair of real shoes to go get my food from the lobby. These are cute and comfy! And last but certainly not least is a recent purchase, a small rechargeable fan. This thing is tiny but mighty! It’s collapsible, has 2 speeds and even can even charge your phone, and has a flashlight. It’s starting to warm up so this will be a staple in my purse. The battery life on it is pretty good too, I think I’ve only had to charge it once in the week I’ve had it, and I use it every day!
I hope y’all get the deals you’re looking for during this year’s Prime Day(s) sale! I have a few things that I’ve been eyeing and a gift card to use for them. May the odds ever be in our favor!
