25+ Tips and Products to Travel Light and Compact

Tips to Travel Light and CompactIt’s hard to imagine what people (oops, I almost said ladies) take with them on a short business trip. Their luggage looks like they plan to travel around a continent for the next six months. A real vacation luggage assembly, in its turn, makes you consider calling the movers instead of the taxi company.

A golden tip that I read long ago goes as follows: Place everything that you want to pack on the floor next to your luggage. Then pack half of it and take twice as much money as you’d originally planned to. Traveling too heavy is no fun, and can be expensive if you exceed the luggage allowance. Worse, airport fluid restrictions can force you to leave your stuff at the security check, so you end up flying to your destination without your contact lens fluid or shaving foam.

Buckle-Up Your Pet in Your Car – Pet Seatbelt

In many places it’s prohibited to take a pet with you in your car without a partition between the pet and the passengers. And that’s for a good reason: Did you know that the average Labrador has an equivalent weight of 1,800 pounds when it hits you after your car crashes at 30 mph? But some cars might not offer enough space for a divider, or it might not be convenient for you. That’s where a pet safety belt comes in handy.
