Going on a weekend trip or a quick business trip? I got some tips and tricks for you to carry light by simply using a weekender bag! This post contains affiliate links, thank you for your support!
Ever wonder if you can fit your weekend outfits, pajamas, toiletries, and makeup bag all in one bag? I wondered, too because one of these days I know we will go on a weekend trip just with me and the hubby. Oh you know, parenting life… that’s once in a blue moon but when that comes, I’ll be ready!
Maybe you’ll be going on a business trip for the weekend and this Jujube Weekender is especially awesome as a carryon if you’re traveling by an airplane!
There is a front pocket to easily store your keys, wallet, and lipstick!
I’m using a Jujube Be Equipped to organize my weekender. These are really great organizers that is pretty compact but can pack a punch. The Be Equipped is actually a breast pump bag organizer, but let’s be honest… if you know Jujube, these things are for ANYTHING.
This square organizer from the ‘Be Equipped’ is really great to pack makeup AND makeup brushes and tools. Yes, it ALL fits but make sure you pack some compact eyeshadow palette like Dose of Colors Marvelous Mauves and travel face powders like Hourglass palette. These are amazing for travel due to their size.
The other organizer that you see next to the makeup one is the unstructured mesh organizer. I used this to pack my two sets of pajamas. If you wear camisoles, tank tops, and a pajama pant to sleep in, this would be perfect for you!
The third item that the set comes with is a small wet bag that you can use to store wrappers or dirty items that you can’t throw right away yet. I have this stored in one of the inside pockets in the weekender.
We’ve got the makeup and pajamas all packed, now it’s time for toiletries! I use the Jujube Be Dapper for this and it is the perfect size and shape for this purpose. The Be Dapper has a handle on the side which makes it easier to pull out of the bag. Lastly, it also has a side pocket that I use to store cotton pads, q-tips, and my contact lens case.
Inside the Be Dapper, you can pack:
- Kieh’s calendula face wash
- Kiehl’s calendula Face toner
- Tea tree oil
- Travel shampoo
- Travel conditioner
- Body wash
- Travel hairbrush
- Hair ties
There are two bottle pockets on the side that I store a S’well water bottle and a compact umbrella. There are also two pockets on each side of the bag that you can use to store other miscellaneous items. On one side of the bag there is a zippered pocket that I like to store my checkbook, pen, and other important stuff.
On the back of the bag, there is another zippered pocket which is a pretty awesome tech pocket to store your phone. It’s felt lined so nothing will scratch that screen!
How can I forget to tell you guys about the long tote straps? I am in love with this bag so much! It also comes with a messenger strap in case you need to carry this hands-free. The Jujube weekender also comes in many colors like black, gray, plum, and black with rose gold hardware!
If you’d like a more in depth view from start to finish on how to pack this weekender bag, I have a video for you! You’ll see all the features and all of my stuff that I packed in there. I hope you enjoyed this helpful tips to make your weekend trip just a bit more organized. Thank you so much for visiting and see you on the next post!
