Five Travel Hacks You’ll Love

1. Roll; Don’t Fold
As you pack, roll your clothes instead of folding them. You’ll be able to fit up to two times the amount of clothing by rolling them as you would by folding them.

2. Pack your “Iron”
And by iron, we mean Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus. The 3 oz travel size meets airline standards. Slip it into your carry-on bag, and with a simple spray, you’ll be wrinkle free all trip long. (It’s also a great fabric refresher if you have to wear your clothes more than once on vacation.) Click here to read more and grab a coupon.

3. Bring an Empty Water Bottle
After you get through security, several airports have filtered water stands to fill your bottle. You’ll also find that most airport cafes will gladly fill your water bottle as well.

4. Snap a Picture
If you’re checking your luggage, snap a picture of your suitcase contents before you leave the house. If the airline loses your luggage, you’ll be able to use the picture to prove the value of the contents.

5. BYO Blanket
Blankets on airlines are hard to come by these days – and they’re not always washed between flights. If you tend to get cold on planes, or you’re going to be flying overnight, pack your own blanket to stay comfortable.

    I didn’t know that about empty water bottles!

    We’ve done the water bottles a few times. Only difficulty with it is when inevitably on a long mutli-plane trip that a water bottle will be left behind on a place or airport.

    Had never thought of the photo though. Will add that in to our day of trip photo shoot. (Since we travel with kids we take a picture of each one of them so we have a current photo, along with showing what they were wearing in case any of them disappear. Haven’t lost a kid yet, but we keep doing it.)

    • Ooo, smart idea of photographing the kids in what they’re wearing that day! I like that a lot!

    I had a friend who would take empty 5 hour energy drink bottles and fill them with whiskey to sneak through security.

    • Very clever!
      When we took a family reunion on a cruise ship, my sister was dismayed to learn the ship prohibited us from bringing our own liquor, so she emptied water bottles and refilled them with vodka to smuggle them onboard. In her cabin, on 2 separate occasions, 2 people accidentally took a swig from those bottles only to be startled by the alcoholic surprise! A little Russian Roulette in that cabin!

        Funny, I am in a Shrine marching band and one hot day while waiting for the parade to start I asked the Hillbillies (another Shrine unit) for a drink of water. They handed me a water bottle filled with clear moonshine. Not exactly the thirst quencher I was looking for.

        • Bwahaha! Love those hillbillies! That’s hysterical!

  4. I wish I’d known that about water bottles too! I had to spend hours queuing recently at an airport straight after we’d been through customs. Daren’t move in case I lost my place. Almost died of dehydration. Almost died. (I might be exaggerating slightly).

    • Ha! Jamie, I’d never dream of accusing you of exaggeration!
