Final Comments on Full Time Travel Packing
I made a YouTube video on this subject roughly one year ago that you can check out to supplement this blog post.
One thing that has definitely stuck with me is that I’ve usually had a better experience when I’ve purchased the higher quality (usually higher price) item if it means it will last me longer. An example of this was the pair of flip-flops I brought with me to travel. They were a relatively inexpensive pair and seemed to be decent quality. After traveling with these and having these flip flops break on me twice, I decided it was time to figure out what higher quality flip flops were on the market. I decided to get a pair of Birkenstocks which have been super dependable. Spending a few extra dollars to grab that high quality product can be worth it. If you think about it, you may save a few bucks buying a cheaper product, but if it breaks on you twice in the year you spent twice the amount which may be cheaper than buying the higher quality pair initially. It also saves you the inconvenience (in my case) of having to walk around with just one flip-flop, because the other one is broken as I made my way back to my accommodation. That’s never fun, and having the piece of mind that I can depend on the flip flops on my feet is important to me now.
The ideal position is to find high quality items at the lowest price possible. Definitely take the time to figure out if the product is worth your money, don’t just look at the low price and make a decision based on that. Get products you can depend on, because that will save you a lot of hiccups on the road.
