The first time I recalled packing light in my entire life was for a quick trip to New York last November. I had the hardest time consolidating everything I ACTUALLY needed with everything I THOUGHT I needed. It was definitely a struggle. I am happy to say I got my life together and have committed to packing a lil lighter from now on… kinda, sorta, maybe…

I am always curious to know what products are on the market to replace what I turned to Target or Amazon to purchase at the last minute. (*Disclaimer* there are a lot of black-owned businesses on Amazon and Target that will be mentioned on this website. However, the products in this list are not found on Target or Amazon... at least not yet). 

Here are 5 carry-on sized bags to grab on your next trip:
