Whether you’re embarking on a road trip or taking to the skies, we have ideas for making your vacation as stress-free as possible. This content is presented in partnership with Hampton by Hilton; it was created independently by our editorial team.

When I pack for vacation, I want two seemingly impossible things: I want to be prepared for any situation and I want my luggage to be breezy and minimalist. I haven’t yet mastered a that outfits me for the beach, a hike, and a nice dinner out, but I have discovered how to prepare for the unexpected without packing the entire medicine cabinet.

This 2 Piece Travel Pill Organizer Box is basically the Kindle of first aid. It’s small enough to fit in my pocket, and the varying compartment sizes mean I can bring my obnoxiously large vitamins and slim allergy pills. I own two of these petite organizers: one for pills I know I’ll need, and one for emergencies. Plus, it’s only $8.

With this handy little gem in my pocket, I don’t pay for overpriced airport meds, and I never waste precious minutes of my searching for a local pharmacy. It’s also fun to be the person in the group who comes to the rescue when a friend has a headache. 

Decanting medication made me slightly nervous at first, but I wrote pill names and dosages on the tiny labels and felt better. I left off the expiration dates because I wanted to reuse the labels, but I regret this because now it’s a guessing game. When I give the organizers a refresh I’ll add dates, although this will mean buying new labels seasonally. Alternatively, you could keep a note on your phone.

I thought I would just use these for vacations, but they’re perfect for day trips, too. When I go on a hike with my family, I toss the organizer in my pocket and we’re ready for headaches, hives, and even minor scrapes (just roll up a Band-Aid and tuck it into one of the slots). 

Now I feel so prepared when I travel — whether on foot or by plane. My desire for minimalism and preparedness isn’t such a paradox with this palm-sized solution. 

What kind of traveler are you? Minimalist, maximalist, or a bit of both?
