1).  Rydir wraps 

Don’t you hate when you’re taking a turn with your rolling suitcase and the bag you had on top falls over spilling all its contents?  To prevent this, and to prevent the clumsiness of having to carry all the extra things you want to carry onto your plane (but that won’t fit into your carryon suitcase), you might think buying that clip, the cup holder, or baggage straps are a good idea.  But those only specialize in holding one thing.  The Rydir wrap will hold it ALL and more.  travel hacks, travel products, best travel productsIt holds weirdly shaped items like the Vietnamese cone-shaped hat I bought while traveling Vietnam (pictured above for instance).  And it will keep your hands free of having to carry the blanket,  the neck pillow, and the water bottle at the airport.  It’s such a simple invention with its stretchy tube top-like design. But it brilliantly holds so much while also packing away into a weightless, bundle when you don’t need it.  AND did you realize, it doubles as cover for your precious designer bags?  I always found it so cringy that you end up having to stowe away your bag under the seat.  This will protect your purse.  Simply wash the Rydir afterwards.  

2).  Universal power adaptor

Back in the day, you might have had to purchase and collect separate adaptors based on whatever country you were planning to visit.  No need to stock a full suite of power adaptors anymore.  Buy this all-in-one and just store it in your suitcase and you’ll be ready to safely charge up at every destination.  Every frequent flier needs this!  Here is the best-selling, highest rated one that covers more than 200 countries.  It’s on sale now here.

Upgrade your old packing cubes to the latest compression packing cubes with hanging hooks and you’ll never look back!  Pack more in with the zipper compression and layering system. Then at the hotel, forget individually transfer items into the closet or cabinets.  Just pull this out and hang.  Instantly, you’re unpacked AND organized. You no longer have to throw around all the contents of your luggage to find what you were looking for!  It makes repacking so quick and mindless too. travel hacks, packing cubes, best packing cubes, pink packing cubes, compression packing cubes
