Lindsay Pinchuk, small business expert, entrepreneur and founder of the “Dear FoundHer…” podcast, helps Studio 512 viewers pack for summer vacation! She shared some of her top products from women-founded businesses:
Tip 1: Keep your jewelry organized and tangle free.
“It’s no surprise a mom of three invented this product to easily store her favorite accessories without worry, frustration or hassle. The LASSO Tangle-Free Accessory Organizer protects, stores and organizes your delicate jewelry like necklaces, pendants, studs, rings…even tech cords when packing for on-the-go travel. LASSO is your travel-sized “must have” to prevent tangles and breakage of your jewelry and tech essentials when you carry them in your bag, purse or pocket. No more knots! Slip, wrap, snap your favorite accessories in and around LASSO’s compact, unbreakable barrel that comes in 3 neutral colors for the whole family.
Tip 2: tag, tag, tag.
“Another product invented by mom, Mabel’s Labels personalized, durable and waterproof labels help me keep EVERYTHING together and organized when I’m packing my family for the holidays. The Travel Label Pack is designed to label suitcases, toiletry bags, electronics, water bottles and anything that travels with you. Mabel’s Labels Personalized Bag Labels are also perfect for labeling your children’s carry-on luggage and backpacks. No more family and sibling mix-ups when you use Mabel’s Labels to organize your late summer travel gear and luggage.
Tip 3: Keep your family healthy and germ-free.
“I’ve said this before here, but as a total germaphobe before COVID and especially now, AirplaneArea is a MUST for traveling. It’s a modern, woman-owned travel brand that creates innovative, plant-based products designed for travel. Whether you’re on vacation or heading to a wedding or honeymoon, you’ll want to pack a 2 oz. PlaneAire Hands TSA-sized hand sanitizer.

Tip 4: Stay organized with storage cubes!

A way makes an amazing set of packing cubes, keeping all your essentials organized. These packing cubes compress and are made from water resistant nylon, a huge plus as your clothes are protected.
