  1. I travel a lot and I can easily vouch for these tips. They are all truth! However, I usually transport beer, not shoes and I normally store them in socks, then wrap a shirt or towel around them.

    1. I can honestly say I have never tried any of these. Well, I’ve wrapped liquor in clothes but that’s about as creative as I have gotten

      1. Never too late to experiment! The shower cap tip is also very handy. It keeps your belongings clean(er) and if you’re at a hotel, the caps are usually free (and dare I say unlimited?)

      2. Agreed!! I will definitely be trying the shower cap one. I have to admit, I am a hoarder of toiletry products. Everytime I stay somewhere and they have nice toiletries, they go right in my bag! Nice to have in my guest bathroom when people are over and staying with us 🙂 I think I have 6 or so shower caps haha!
        I do have to say, I’m still confused about the only left turns in security lines?

      3. I was scratching my head at that one, too. My personal tip for getting by faster is to remove anything that could potentially beep. For me, it’s usually loose change, phone, camera, belt, and shoes. Oh, and they’ll want your laptop and electronic devices out of your bag, too.

        Haha I used to be a hoarder like that, too! Shampoos, soaps.. anything I can get my hands on that’s free is all fair game! I drew the line though. I’ve too much. =P

      4. Ugh yes. I LOATHE TSA! I usually travel with my iPad and my purse is big enough that I can jus take it out of there and chunk it in a tub. I also wear shoes I don’t have to tie or untie. My husband is the worst. He always has to take off the belt, change, etc. Not to mention, we has had a few knives taken away. Serves him right.

        OMG I’m so glad I’m not the only one! I should probably stop, but one day… 20 years from now… I will run out and then I’ll have to start all over! Better safe than sorry 🙂

      5. Haha yea, I’ve learned to wear the shoes that require the least amount of work to wear and remove. It saves so much time! Especially since after passing the gate, everyone is frantically reclaiming their belongings while catching a flight. There have been times when I didn’t get a chance to reinsert my belt!

        You’re probably right. They will come in handy regardless of how many you’ve stockpiled. I find it really neat how the different hotels use different fragrances and brands!

      6. Can’t say I’ve ever been that crunched for time thank goodness! But the one time we missed our flight, we got upgraded to first class, so it wasn’t so tragic afterall 🙂 And no kidding!!! I was JUST looking at all the different brands of stuff I have last night as I was adding more to the pile. Gotta have a little variety in your life!

      7. Well we were going on a cruise and it’s all they had available or wew were going to miss our cruise!!! Lol I’m not sure what airline it was. I was thinking United but It was back in 2009. But when we went to Cancun in 2010 we upgraded to first class for $300 total!! Hell of a deal! That was Delta which is what we usually fly 🙂

      8. Ah I see.. My girlfriend and I love flying Air Canada. Haven’t had any major problems with them (knock on wood). The only bump in our travels were having two flights delayed due to de-icing. We made our connecting flight though, so it’s all good!
