Are you getting ready to travel this summer? If you are, chances are you got a list of travel essentials and accessories you need to buy before the trip. For me no matter how prepared I am, someone in the family always seem to need something before going on a trip.
These expenses can add up and if you're like me, you certainly don't want to dip into your travel budget to pay for things before you even get to your destination.
I usually get most of my must have travel accessories at the dollar store. If you have not checked them out, I encourage you to look at your favorite dollar store.
If you are going somewhere sunny, they have the best travel accessories for those destinations with items like sunscreen, lip protection, beach toys and hats - all for only dollar each.
You can also find cute make up bags which are great for make up but also other things like snacks, toys, electronic cords and activity kits.
Need some entertainment for your trip? They have some there too.
You can also find great entertainment supplies for road trip kits for the kids. These also make great gift ideas for friends that are going on a trip soon. Blank notebooks can be used for travel journals.
I have made a list of what I found at the dollar store for your travel needs:
