How to Make the Perfect Travel Toiletry Bag

For more like this, check out all of my Travel Posts


As a flight attendant, I often live out of a suitcase. Because of this, I believe I have finally perfected my toiletry bag! I’ve recently tried to become more minimalistic and cut down what I travel with to only bring the essentials. This might look like a lot of products, but I bought a smaller toiletry bag and it fits everything I could possibly need for every occasion (but only the essentials of course)

Everything I am linking is a product that I have purchased and used myself, either currently or in the past
