So you’ve been bitten by the travel bug? Congratulations, now you’re in for a fun time that involves some of the smartest hacks and tricks.
If you think that all there is to travel hacks is finding a cheap flight or downloading Google Maps offline, you’re in for a surprise because there is no limit to how creative you can get when you really want to make your travel smoother and more comfortable.
It can go from saving more space in your checked bag to keeping your shoes in a shower cap, there is no limit!
Now check out this list of 6 travel hacks that will make you wonder why you hadn’t thought about them before. Pack your travel bags and get your flight tickets ready. Let’s go!
1. Put your shoes in a shower cap
You don’t have a shoe bag or plastic bag? That’s not an issue, you can always use a shower cap to separate your dirty shoes from the rest of your clothes while packing on the way back home.
And if the idea of keeping shoes (dirty soles and all) in a shower cap makes you cringe, remember that you can always wash it like you wash your clothes!
2. Roll your clothes for more space
You don’t have enough space in your travel bag? Rather than folding your clothes, try rolling them, which will save you more space for other items to put in your bag and keep your clothes from wrinkling. Pretty simple and neat, right?
3. Cover razors with binder clips
Trust me, you don’t want to deal with bloody fingers while traveling, and the best hack to avoid that is by using a binder clip.
It’s very easy to cut your fingers while searching for an item in your carry-on bag, so make sure all your blades are protected. You can even go a step further and order a razor blade cover from Amazon.
4. Mark your bags as “fragile”
Now, this is what I call the ultimate travel hack. If you want to be the first to get your bag at the airport, mark your luggage as “fragile!” Not only will your baggage be handled carefully, but it will also be at the top of the pile in the airplane’s storage compartment. Clever, am I right?
