With summer travel plans filling up our calendars, I want to share my tips for staying organized and planning your travel this season! Here are my tips:
- Prioritize what activities you want to do and see while traveling
- Plan out your travel outfits and organize your luggage with all your essentials
- Don’t forget to document your travels in your journal
- Carry it all with you in compact size
When I’m planning my travels, especially to a city I have never been to, I like to research what the city has to offer and make a list of activities I’m interested in doing. Then I’ll prioritize what activities I’m MOST interested in seeing and doing and determine how it all fits in my schedule. Many times there are just too many things to see that I have to eliminate a few activities that are not high on my wishlist.
After prioritizing, I place all my activities into my Erin Condren Hardbound Lifeplanner!

Plan Your Travel Outfits
Of course we have to plan out our travel outfits and see what essentials to bring. I like to form a capsule wardrobe for my travels, especially with long trips (2-4 weeks) and limited luggage space. Then I’ll use my handy Erin Condren Snap-in Travel Dashboard and Gemstone Wet Erase Markers to check off all my essentials. Isn’t it the worst when you arrive to your destination and realize you forgot your toothbrush?! It’s an easy fix but forgetting your prescription medications or glasses is tricky!
While traveling, of course photography is a must but I also recommend journaling! It is a great way to stay connected during the trip and reflect on memories that are made. This can also become a mini-scrapbook if you leave room to clip in photos and utilize Erin Condren’s large array of stickers!
Erin Condren’s new Hardbound Notebooks are perfect for your journal time and come in a wide-variety of colors to fit your desires. I picked up one in almost every color! Can’t wait to use them all 🙂

Now, how are we going to fit it all together? Erin Condren’s travel planner, notebook and accessories makes it easy to stay organized, journal and have fun while traveling! I even tested out my notebook with my ONA Camera Bag and it fit perfectly for my day-to-day travels – time to photograph the entire city and take journal breaks at local coffee shops?!
