Wednesday—Good For You, Good for Your Suitcase

Clever packing tips for your suitcase from DaveHax, Efficiency Engineer at Holiday Inn Express

Neat ideas for travelers!

1.  Portable Hanging Shelves — Use collapsible closet compartments to separate and neatly organize clothing items.

2.  Use the under-2-minutes shirt folding technique — Check out Dave's you tube on how to fold shirts in under 2 minutes.

3.  Tuck belts into the collar of business shirts — This keeps collars from being squished after the suitcase is closed.

4.  Use cling wrap under screw top lids to seal plastic bottles — This provides an extra layer of protection from spilled liquids.

5.  Use an alligator clip to cover exposed razor blades — A handy alternative if you lose the plastic cover from a disposable razor.

6.  Use an alligator clip to wrap cables for small electronics — Store loose cables in an old glasses case for easy retrieval.

7.  Use the television USB plug-in if you forget your recharger — Make sure that the TV is on!

8.  Amplify small device music by placing it in an empty cup — This is handy if you want to leave your device plugged into the charger.

9.  Pack suit jackets inside out & fold them in half, then in quarters —This helps to prevent wrinkling.

10.  Use a business card as a suitcase ID tag — A professional & safe way to leave contact info.

11.  My tip:  Don't travel with expensive luggage!  It is a known fact that thieves target expensive luggage, assuming that expensive bags contain valuable cargo.
