Cooltips: Travel-Related New Uses for Old Things

Summer time (for the northern hemisphere) is just around the corner. Winter is almost arriving to the southern hemisphere.  Are you planning a trip?

When packing for your next trip, put these household items to use:

1-Suitcase as Linen Storage
Keep off season linens and other decorations in a suitcase when you’re not traveling.

2-Luggage Tag as Gift Label
Slip a gift label inside a tag.

3-Luggage Tag as Decorating Aid
Avoid decorating mistakes. Tuck fabric, wallpaper, and paint swatches inside so you can ensure a perfect match.

4-Hanging Wash Bag as Cord Storage
Store chargers, power cords, and extra headphones in the clear pouches of a hanging jewelry organizer. You’ll be able to find exactly what you’re looking for and packing your tech is that much easier.

5-Button as Earring Holder
Travel is best done in pairs (think of Lewis and Clark or Thelma and Louise). To keep a set of earrings together on your next overnight jaunt, fasten them to a button so they won’t get lost in your suitcase pocket.

6-Matchbox as Travel Sewing Kit
Once the sticks are gone, fill a matchbox with a few sewing essentials: needles, thread, buttons, and a few safety pins. No more need to panic when a button emergency strikes on a business trip.

7-Socks as Shoe Protectors
Use athletic socks to sheathe your nicest shoes inside a suitcase. Protecting them from wear and tear when you’re on the road.

8-Eyeglasses Case as Makeup Brush Holder
Store makeup brushes in an eyeglass case when you travel. That way, you won’t spend 20 minutes looking for your blush brush.
