After much searching, I invested in a travel organiser. I don’t carry much gear for a professional full-time traveler ( 4 years now), but I saw these Bubm organisers on Amazon and had to have one. I did some hunting for best travel organisers and picked the Bubm below from a competitive market. I was sick of passport, documents, leads, cables, plugs, adaptors, phones, power packs, memory sticks and electronics debris hanging around in my bag along with tiny crumbs of chocolate, crisp fragments and sticky sweet wrappers (let’s mention too, the wet wipes, mosquito repellent, sand and hand gel) constantly threatening destruction. I compared various styles of travel organisers and chose the one below because the color, design and price ( £15.99 under $20) were good . I’ve now been using it for a year and would give it a very good review. and I had it in my hands within a few hours of ordering thanks to traveler’s joy, Amazon Prime (Try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial US only). These organisers make travelling life easier, quicker and slicker, check out this, and other organisers we’ve researched, below. Most are available in the USA, UK and Europe.

I travel with my family so I carry more than most and up to this point in our travels we’ve stored all of our leads and chargers ( cable spaghetti!) in a communal family travel organiser, a smallest size e-bags packing cube, as below. Clicking on the images will take you through to find more details on Amazon.
Best Travel Organizers, The Competition
Here is a selection of travel organizers I found on Amazon, there really is little to chose between them and the choice comes down to personal preference. You could, indeed, buy one simply for your passport and travel documents, but my choice is to organize my electronics.
Styles of Travel Organiser:
- Packing cubes
- Packing pouches
- Organisers for hand luggage/ day packs
- Purse organisers
- Travel Wallets
- Family travel organisers
- Passport organisers
- Document organisers
- Electronics organisers
- Multipurpose organisers
Stage 1 of Organisation, Packing Cubes!
The Classic, Ebags Packing Cubes
Check prices and colours here on these eBags packing cubes. A classic choice.
We have used eBags Packing Cubes for years to help organize our cases or backpacks. They’re tough, long lasting and for me, indispensable. A 3 piece set like this one above is around £20 or $30. If you click through from the image or the links you’ll see that they come in various combinations of shapes and sizes and every colour of the rainbow. We own these and recommend them.
More Travel Organiser Bags, Cubes and Pouches
You can buy all manner of travel organiser bags, for laundry, toiletries, you name it. As I said, we own the e bags packing cubes, above, but all of these are worth looking at, these two below are the top best sellers on Amazon. I really liked the third set because it has those sealed laundry bags, so I bought this too. There’s nothing worse than having to put smelly stuff in with your clean clothes. If you click through there are much nicer colours, we have blue.
Amazon Basics Packing Cubes
Amazon basics packing cubes are a slightly cheaper alternative to eBags, Check colours, shapes and prices here.
Set of 6 Packing Cubes
Packing Cubes With Laundry (or toy!) Pouches
Another set that we own and use. I bought these because the zippered pouches, in multiple sizes, are a really useful thing to have. So far they’ve been put to use for toothbrushes, toys and to sort clothes. That shoe bag is great to have too, after years of using carrier bags. You’d be surprised that our carrier bag stash does often run out, they just don’t hand them out everywhere, which is a good thing.
I’ll Mention in Passing That You NEED Power Packs!
We now have a full post on the best rechargeable power packs, we recommend solar powered.
My Organiser for Cables, Personal Electronics and Hand Luggage Essentials
This is mine, click through for prices, also different styles.Travel Organizer, BUBM Universal Double Layer Travel Gear Organizer / Electronics Accessories Bag / Battery carrying Case- Grey and Orange
As a mummy, I think these could equally be called family organisers. I’m forever carrying precious things ( 3 Kindles) around for the kids, one of these is just perfect to stash the stuff and keep it all breakage, sand and chocolate proof. I’m also going to be keeping tissues in there so they don’t get crummy in my bag, I know you’re hearing me moms!
I love that you can take this organiser from a day pack or lap top bag and just stick the whole thing in a handbag ( purse).
You can also pull the organiser out on long flights and hang all your gadgetry and essentials on the seat-back hook so that I have a nail file for when you inevitably break a nail and my pen for the customs declaration along with Kindle, phone and power packs. It has a handy detachable carrying strap/loop hanger.
So, this is not a promotional post, the makers (Bubm) didn’t contact me and ask me to review them in exchange for a free product. This organiser was, cheap under $20. I don’t do reviews at that price. I researched best travel organizers and bought this one for myself as a treat.
A second one could be a good idea, for make up, a few toiletries. It has a big pouch in the back that would do just fine for toothbrush and paste.
It would also be great for jewellery if that’s something you carry, and hair bands and clips ( that I’m forever losing), the possibilities are endless!
I could have gone for a smaller travel organiser, maybe. This one would take a tablet and I don’t own one, my largest electronic gizmo is my Kindle, but as I said, I liked the colour and I’ve had no trouble filling it up with essentials.

Our Travel Organisers Continue to Travel With Us
We are ultra-minimalist and own few items total so the things we carry as we travel have to work well or they quickly find themselves in charity shops. This organizer makes the grade.
If you like the look of them, buy one ( Bubm here), I make the usual Amazon commission that helps fund our websites and keep them free. If not, just click-through to Amazon and buy yourself a treat of your choosing, I get a commission on anything you buy via our links. Isn’t that great!
Enjoy the rest of your week, I have 3 days of diving left before we leave our newly beloved cats at this house sit and move back to our usual London base, Twickenham/Richmond. We’ve actually, for only the second time in 3 years, found a place though AirBnb for a month (if you sign up to host or stay via our link you get a special discount), a real bargain and exactly where we wanted to be. So we’ll be squeezing more fun and education out of London before Chef’s Iron Man competition next month.
Catch you later,
