10 Travel essentials under $10 each


Have a trip coming up? On a tight budget?

Don’t worry, we got you! Here are 10 travel essentials you need for every trip for under $10 each.

So you can keep some extra money in your pockets for your trip. 

Water Bottle

First of all be eco-friendly always if given the chance, that being said we really recommend always caring a water bottle with you – when travelling we need to be hydrated. I’m really loving this one I found some time ago, its collapsible so it doesn’t take any space in your bag. (I love this design below)  $9.99

Clear Travel Toiletry Bag

Stop using Ziploc bags when traveling – this bag is fine by TSA standards and it is so handy. Definitely a great buy! Most importantly is that it is a re-usable bag and like I said before let’s stop using all those plastic bags every trip – it really adds up.  $5.98

Travel Passport/ID & Cards Holder

I always like to have all my important documents with me, at least most of the time during my trip. It’s just easier to keep track of. Plus they are always asking you to check your documents so it’s handy them all in one spot.  $9.99


Other (not sponsored just a recommendation, Dylan swears by it. He’s taken it everywhere with him.)

Small Journal & Pens

We never ever leave home without one, even if a pen is obvious we often forget these type of things and it’s a MUST. Also we love to document our adventures. It's easy to let memories fade throughout the years of traveling, but that's why journaling is key. Take a moment while on the road to write down fun details, observations and your feelings in those special moments. Future you will give current you a high-five. Promise.                        ( $9.95 with 3 ) 

These are our favorites (and Ernest Heminway’s as well):  

Books – Kindle or magazines


Yes, there’s nothing better than having something to read during your trip, isn’t it excited to read something new when you're going on a new adventure? We sure indulge. 


Universal Outlet Adaptor

This is a MUST for those who do a lot of international traveling. We even travel with more than one – so much to charge haha! 

Travel Pillow

The best thing about this pillow is that it’s inflatable so it takes much less space than a normal travel pillow. It also has a great carrying case so you can attach it to the outside of your bag for even more space.
