Having a traveling guide full of hacks may be just the right thing for you. You’ll feel at ease when you realize how much easier traveling will be if you just knew these few certain things. Be prepared to learn some fun hacks for your next awesome vacation. You’ll be glad you did.
The most frustrating thing about your pre vacation is to have to pack for it; there are many ways to make this part fun and easy. One is that when you are packing your suitcase, make sure to roll your clothes to save space and avoid wrinkles. You could never have imagined how much more stuff you can put in it now if you just use this simple trick. Roll up your belt and stick it inside your collared shirts to keep them clean and stiff. If you want to bring a small amount of concealer or lotions, put them in contact cases. To prevent bottles from leaking in your luggage, place plastic wrap over the container and then seal it with the cap. This next hack is not only smart, but also really amazing for your safety; you should use a binder clip to protect razors while traveling. You won’t have to worry about sticking your hand in your bag and finding a sharp object by mistake. Ouch! Having a cut right before a vacation would be no fun.
If you absolutely must have your wine with you when you travel, be sure to protect your wine bottles in your suitcase by wrapping them in Wine Skin or even some pool floaties. Make sure to buy a portable phone charger or charging case for when you’re not near a wall plug; this will save you from be stranded in a new place and making sure not to lose contact with the people you are traveling with. Hotels also have chargers that you can ask to borrow during your stay. You can use a pill container to store your jewelry. If you like that fresh clothes small, go stick a dryer sheet in your suitcase with your clothes. For all the ladies; put your bobby pins in a Tic Tac container to keep from losing them, and you can turn a pot holder into a case for your flat iron so you can pack it even while it’s still warm.
We all love our phones, even while at a waterpark or the beach; make sure you put your phone in a plastic bag so you can carry it with you. It’d be terrible to lose a plug you need, so make sure to store your loose cables/chargers in a sunglasses case to keep everything in one place. This next hack is super important: call your credit card or debit card company before traveling internationally so that you’re authorized for vacation purchases. Also make sure you scan your passport, ID, and itinerary and e-mail it to yourself so you have a digital copy in the event of loss or theft. It will save you a lot of headaches. When packing your suitcase, wrap your shoes in a shower cap. Something good to know is that you can carry an empty water bottle and fill it up around the airport so you don’t have to buy their expensive water bottles. You can also carry miniature alcohol bottles on your flight if you have that sudden urge. Enjoy this one.
If you’re on a road trip, there are also some fun hacks to know. You can turn a cereal container into a trash can for your car. You can buy a shower caddy from the dollar store to use it for easy eating. A good hack to know is that if you want to use Google Maps offline, type “ok maps” and the current area on your phone will save for later. When you’re driving in a new city and need to remember where you parked, drop a pin on Google Maps or take a photo of the parking space with your phone, or even just take a photo of the cross streets you parked near will help you.
Hope this helps you for your next fun journey to a new place, or even a revisited spot. These hacks will make traveling more fun and less hectic. Good luck.
