Wrap your shoes

Whether it is for a week of vacation or for an entire year abroad, in addition to clothing we usually like to bring more than one pair of shoes. The problem is that in the suitcase they take up space but also dirty the other clothes.

To avoid the drama use simply a shower cap and wrap your shoes with it, the trick is so simple that we wonder why we didn’t think about it earlier.

The good thing is in general when you go to a hotel they give them for free when you rent a room. Don’t hesitate to ask your friend and family, like that this little object is going to have a second life.

Store your cables

Phones, laptops, external batteries all of these items have one point in common. They need to be charged and almost every time after we use it for some of them. 

But when you leave your house, you need to take all of them with you! We know it can be a mess with all the cable, to avoid that you only need a sunglasses case. 

Thankfully, an empty one can save your life, much more practical. Bye to the mess!

Write Down The Address Of Your Hotel

Sometimes, after a really long flight using your phone for games or Netflix, your battery could end up dead.

And you forget your external battery, what are you going to say at the taxi/uber driver? Nothing because you can’t remember the name of your hotel.

It is ridiculous but it happens to just fall asleep and forget about your battery so do not laugh.

Just write it down before leaving and it will maybe save you.

Bring a spare bottle

During the process of packing your suitcase just put a spare bottle in your backpack.

Everyone knows how airports are super strict about liquids. However, you can take an empty bottle! It is allowed. And after passing the security just take the water from the bathroom if it’s drinkable of course. You are going to save a lot of money and help reduce plastic. 

The same thing actually for your grocery bags, just take with you 3 tot bags, they are easily transportable and also help the planet.

So thank you!

Invest in a multi-socket and an adapter

Between the laptop, the tablet and the computer you need a lot of sockets, and sometimes you don’t have as many sockets as you need.

No worries just take a multi-socket. It does not take up much space and is really indispensable.

This trick can also be combined with the one to always leave with an adapter like the  3-in-1 adapters which are very convenient by the way.
