What’s in my Car Travel Pouch
Since we travel back and forth to New York often we spend a lot of time in the car, so keeping it well stocked is a must. Something that has come in handy is keeping a car travel pouch filled with essentials and other random things we may need on the road. Traveling has definitely become more convenient because I don’t find myself scrambling to find things anymore.
This is the travel bag I went with to hold all of my essentials. It’s meant to be used for cosmetics and toiletries, but it works perfectly as a car travel pouch. I like it because it’s clear and has two separate compartments. Its size is perfect for travel, while giving me enough space to fit what I need. Here’s a look at what I typically keep inside:
- Touchland Sanitizing Mist
- First Aid Kit
- Lint Roller: If you have a dog, you get it.
- Dog Travel Bowl: We almost always have Merlin with us and this is great for making sure he drinks water while we’re traveling
- Hand Cream
- Slip Scrunchies
- Pill Organizer: Someone always gets a headache or stomach ache on the road (usually me)
- Dog Poop Bag Dispenser
- Hand Wipes
- Car Charger
What we keep in our car travel pouch makes sense for our family, but you can truly keep it filled with whatever you may need while you’re driving. You can also used any sort of pouch or bag to hold all of your essentials. I prefer transparent bags because it makes it easier to see exactly what’s inside. The clear pouch we use is a bit of a splurge, so I also included some similar, more affordable options for your car travel pouch below.
