Travel Tips & Unique Gadgets

Whether traveling by car or plane, or for business or pleasure, here are a few tips to help avoid some bumps and wrinkles.

1. Use a packing checklist. Print out multiple copies and store with your luggage for next time.

2. Clearly identify your luggage with bright colorful luggage tags or pom-poms.

3. To corral the cords for your electronic items, consider using a reusable rubber twist tie.

4. If you don’t like laying your toothbrush down on the bathroom counter at hotels, use a travel toothbrush holder that keeps your toothbrush standing upright.

5. Have you ever put your hand in your toiletries bag only to get cut by your razor? If so, you’ll appreciate having a razor case.

6. Tired of the cost of travel-size toothpaste? Buy a large tube of toothpaste and refill a travel size tube made for toothpaste.

7. If you like to refill travel size bottles with shampoo, conditioner, lotions, and creams, you’ll love these squeezable bottles with suction cups to hang from shower walls.

8. Label each refillable bottle so you and others can identify what is in the bottle. Print labels with a label maker or purchase pre-printed colorful travel labels, clear travel labels or reusable printed toiletry bands.

9. Store toiletries in leak-proof reusable zipper bags. Label the bag with individual labels for each item stored in it such as shampoo, conditioner, lotion, body wash, etc. This “list” on the bag will make packing and repacking easy. Also, by using individual removable labels, you can easily move an item along with its label to another bag.

10. If you need to refill travel size bottles, small funnels may simplify the process.

11. Whether you need to touch up your hair with a blow dryer or iron a piece of clothing, you may find that packing a 3 oz. travel spray bottle to fill with water helps you to achieve your goals.

12. Be prepared for unexpected traveling needs. Below is a list of a few items that may make your trip a bit smoother. Store these items in a clear zipper bag. Put labels on the bag identifying what is in the bag so everyone can easily find and replenish items.

  1. Small first-aid kit with Band-Aids
  2. Rubber bands
  3. Scissors
  4. Sewing kit with buttons and safety pin
  5. Lint remover
  6. Scotch tape
  7. Clips, magnetic and/or binder (great to close bags of snacks)

All of the products listed in this article and shown on WFMZ TV News segment “Travel Tips” with Diane Albright and TV News Anchor Eve Russo were purchased at The Container Store.

Happy and safe traveling!

Diane

FTC Disclosure: Every so often companies may provide me products at my request or theirs so I can review them for TV segments or my blog. I only review and recommend products I feel are worthwhile to my clients, audience, and visitors. On occasion I may receive compensation which helps to offset the time and expenses I incur reviewing and writing about products. I can assure you, I have turned down many offers as I truly must believe in a company and product to be associated with it. My reputation comes first.
Thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
