Whether you'll be traveling by plane or car this break, we have some simple travel tips just for you. We've previously covered that you can protect the head of your razor with a piece of a drinking straw. An alternative to that could be a binder clip. Not only does it provide safety and a more durable cover for your razor but it can also double as a toothbrush stand. Simply prop your toothbrush with a clip to prevent it from touching dirty counters at a hotel. This is a quick and simple trick to use especially if you can't find anything else to put your toothbrush in. There's so many innovative uses for binder clips outside of the office. If you wanna avoid a tangled mess when storing your earphones, take a binder clip and place the earphones in the mouth of the clip then carefully wrap the wire around the handles of the clip and feed the jack through the opening. Now, you can clip it onto your backpack or just toss it in your travel bag. Another method which is less likely to damage the wiring over time is the devil horns technique. Hold the earphones with your middle finger and ring finger and wrap the wire around your index and pinky fingers in a figure eight pattern. Save the last bit of wire and wrap the end in the middle and stick the headphone jack through the loops that you just made to secure it. This method is especially effective because it doesn't require anything extra to keep your earbuds from unraveling. Plastic bags are an inexpensive packing organizer and a great way to recycle. Your shoes may be clean when you pack them for your trip but probably not afterwards. Pack several bags to keep clothes clean from dirty shoes or wet items. Like everything else, water usually costs a lot more at airports. You probably know by now that you can't bring a full bottle through security but there's no stopping you from cheating the system. Grab yourself an empty water bottle or jug and fill it up somewhere else once you pass through security. Yeah, it's pretty simply but having your own water bottle ensures that you'll avoid the dehydrating effects of flying and save money in the process. Ever struggle with getting directions to a desolate area without signal or Wi-Fi? Use Google Maps offline by tapping by OK Maps and the visible area within 10 miles will save for future access. Zoom in on a part of the map that you wanna save for later then tap that search bar and just type in OK Maps. Hit the Search button. Once it's saved, you can access the map even without a data connection. It's way better than taking a screenshot because your saved map let's you zoom in for greater detail. Also, it works on both iOS and Android devices. You should see a prompt indicating the map is downloading. It'll take about 10 seconds depending on the size of the map you've selected and the speed of your connection. Wait for the message that says the onscreen map area has been cached and you're good to go. One of the challenges you might face when traveling is keeping your clothes from getting bent out of shape or flattened in your luggage. Keep your shirt collar stiff by rolling up a belt and placing it in the neck opening of your shirt right before you pack it in the suitcase. This simple solution will keep your collar crisp and give you the perfect place to pack your belt. Now, here's a fun one. You can use a pen spring to protect chargers from bending and breaking. If you've never broken a laptop or phone charger then you're as rare as a unicorn. For everyone else, this probably looks familiar. Remove the spring from a pen and carefully stretch it out just a bit. Attach the spring near the end of the connector and roll it into the cable. It's that simple. For phone chargers, simply repeat this process for both sides. When you're packing for a trip, it's easy to forget a few things such as your charging block for your gadgets or perhaps there are no more available outlets where you're staying. Usually, the televisions in your hotel will have a USB slot in the back of the TV and they're gonna be capable of charging your devices. Give it a shot. When you're traveling especially with kids, eating fast food is not always the best option. Next time, turn a craft organizer into a customizable snack pack. These containers are a great option for feeding nutritionally balanced meals while on the go. The dividers can easily be moved around to accommodate whatever you would like to add to their meal. Pack 'em with a crunchy snack or fruits, veggies, drinks, whatever you want. They're easily accessible, stack and store conveniently. They also double as a tray table. Traveling for spring break, placing your toiletries in a sealed bag will help a bit but they can still get squished and explode. This can happen due to air pressure changes on the airplane. Now, you can prevent this easily by removing the cap and giving the bottle a little squeeze to let out any extra air then add a small amount of plastic wrap and pull it tightly over the opening. Once it's secure, screw the cap back on. For extra protection, store 'em in a Ziploc bag and tuck 'em in the corner of your suitcase where there's more cushion. Now, you can keep your toiletries where they belong, in their bottles. A huge thanks to Audible for supporting our video. They're the perfect solution for long car rides or flights.
