fall-packing-essentials.jpgLeaves are in the air, there's the smell of campfire wherever you go, and everyone's ready for football season. It's fall, ya'll! Which means it's time to get prepped for your fall travel assignment. We've listed some of the essentials, plus our faves. 

Weekender bag

This carry-all isn’t only good for, well, weekend getaways. A weekender bag can be used as a gym bag, or a place to tote your kids’ many knick-knacks, toys and extra clothes for when they decide to unexpectedly jump in that mud puddle. You could also use it as a go-to for your work gear (like scrubs, extra clothes, stethoscope, snacks, gum, your coffee mug, notebook, etc.)—some jobs don’t give you the luxury of leaving your stuff anywhere.
