"Be prepared" is my travel motto. And, in keeping with that theme, I've blogged and guest blogged about how to stay well on the road. But if you'd like to see how I actually pack my ultimate first-aid kit and why I bring the supplies I do, check out this new media segment (part 1 of a two-part series) that I just did for Trip On A Deal. In 7+ minutes, hosts and producers John Palacio and Luz Montez ask me about why I bring along Tic Tacs, what supplies women need to tote to ward off ills on the road, the array of products I carry to ward off "tummy troubles" and much more.

So this goes into your checked bags ... yes? It would be too many gels etc for the carry-on rules ???
Hi Roxanne, Actually, no checked luggage. I have very small sizes (each is substantially smaller than 3 oz) for each of the many gels/liquids. So they all fit in the accepted one quart-size zip lock bag. Then, when I get to my destination, I separate them into their separate bags.
Good advice from a seasoned traveler. With all my travel-blogger buddies, I should be good to go if I ever venture out of Michigan.
Hi Jane, Thanks. Glad you liked my tips. And your comment on Michigan really made me laugh.
What a great idea. When we travel out of the country I have always tried to create such a kit but not nearly as organized as yours!
Hi merr, yes, a well-organized and complete first-aid kit has always been the item I first pack when I'm traveling.
Great video, and great tips! Since you bring carry-on, can you bring ALL these bags with you? In other words, more than one quart-sized bag?
Hi Sheryl, Great question. Yes, I can easily bring all the bags because what I do is put the small-size liquid/gel containers in one 1 quart bag before I go through security. Then I repackage into the individual bags when I get to my destination.
