Updated: Jul 10, 2019

Being a curvy girl and traveling often and far distances, I have discovered a few of my most favorite must-have items that are affordable! And, some of these items I find uniquely helpful for being a curvy, plus-sized woman. These items will keep you feeling fresh, entertained, connect & prepared.

Buy all of these items for only $67! These items are worth more than their price and can be used for much longer than just a single trip.

You can pick these up at most grocery stores. I usually pick up a few packets in near the checkout or in the travel size section. I always have one in my car, my bag, my office and extras on hand to restock.
