Traveling with a curling iron? Pack it in an oven mitt.
Tight connection? When booking, pick an aisle seat near the front.
Traveling several months from now? Sign up for fare alerts at Kayak, FareCompare, Hipmunk, and others.
Checking your luggage? Use an expandable suitcase. As long as it doesn’t exceed the weight amount, you will be able to add more by expanding the suitcase.
Need to save room in your suitcase? Try travel space bags which will compress your clothes and usually keep them wrinkle free.
Have a long flight and want to stay comfortable? Wear breathable fabrics like silk, cotton, or linen on the plane.
Forgot your laundry soap? Baby shampoo works just as well. You can also use it to defog your swim or ski goggles. Just dab a small amount and rinse. Throw in some dryer sheets. One in your dirty clothes bag helps with smelly clothes. Use another one to remove static. Place one in each shoe to keep them smelling better.
Need thread? Dental floss works well.
