When I was in high school, my family took a trip to Hawaii. This was the first big trip where I really put thought into what I wanted to pack and wear, and well... I didn't do a great job. My suitcase was overflowing and too heavy for me to even lift. I think I had packed around ten pairs of shoes... And well, It's not something I'm proud of.

These days, I pack much lighter. A few years ago I spent over a month in Europe with just a carry-on, and this year I did the same thing for six weeks in Australia. I know it can seem impossible to pack for such a long time, in such a small space, but trust me—it's worth it!

Even though I pride myself on being a light packer, there is one thing I will never go without—snacks! Travel can be exhausting, and being hangry doesn't help. So I always come prepared. Lately my go-to snacks have been the Windstone Farms Creamy Peanut Butter Portable Packets. They're delicious, easy to store, and perfect for on-the-go living!

Check out the rest of my tips for carry-on only travel, below!

Pack Snacks

If there’s one thing I’ve learned about traveling, it’s that you will definitely need to pack snacks! You never know when you won’t have access to a good meal, and running around, all day, can definitely work up an appetite.

Rather than filling up on junk food, I like to pack better for me snacks, like the Windstone Farms Creamy Peanut Butter Portable Packets, fruit leather, or small packs of nuts. I simply fill any open spaces, inside my carryon suitcase, with all the snacks I can carry, and I’m good to go!

Windstone Farms has been family owned and operated for 35 years, but their Creamy Peanut Butter Packets are new at Walmart. They're made from USA grown and harvested peanutes, in Louisville, KY, where they're freshly roasted and packaged. They come in travel and TSA friendly packets and are made with only the highest quality ingredients, so you can get a wholesome alternative to unhealthy snacks, wherever you go!

Remember to grab some Windstone Farms Creamy Peanut Butter Portable Packets from Walmart! They're perfect for keeping in the cupboard, at home, when you need a quick snack, or for taking on the road! You can even earn $0.50 back while supplies last, with THIS Ibotta Offer! Be sure to lookout for a demo, at a Walmart near you, where you can try the NEW Windstone Farms Creamy Peanut Butter Portable Packets, between August 8th & 10th.
