47 Travel Hacks (My 2019 List)

This video is about 47 travel hacks. These travel hacks are from my 2019 list that you have shared with me. These tricks and tips are hacks that you can even use in the airplane, in a hotel or for a road trip. These travel hacks are not the ones we have all heard of like packing razor blades in sunglasses case or putting lotion in contact case. I have been keeping a list this year and have 47 hacks to share with you while you travel. #travelhacks
The number 1 travel hack is to use a beach ball inflatable for a foot rest. I bought a foot hammock this year to keep the blood flowing in my legs on a long haul flight. I love these tips and tricks for travel.

    I always bring a small flashlight and I have two plastic S hooks to put over the shower curtain rod so I can hang my bathing suit or towels or whatever you want. I haven’t done this yet, but on my next trip I will bring a clothes hanger that you can put over the door. There never seem to be enough places to,hang things. I’m also thinking about bringing some command hooks that can be put on the wall or door and then they can be easily removed when you’re ready to check out. Hope this helps.

    I like to pack some over the door plastic hooks for extra spots to hang items. If your hotel door is metal, pack a small magnet and you have somewhere to hang tickets/itineraries so that you don’t forget them heading out the door. Also, I believe if you squeeze in the sides of liquid containers…it creates an airlock and prevents spills.

    I love this hacks. Thanks Laurie!

    Laurie, my cell phone service provider doesn’t have any options for international data plans. What do I do about not having a working cell phone while out of the country?

  5. Becky Wampler September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    Any ideas for shoe bags? I use old pillow cases to pack my boots.

  6. Linda Heard September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    Have you ever travel to southeast asia?

  7. Kathy Aubrey September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    I'm on a road trip and some tips have come in handy such as flushing toilet first!! covering the peep hole and fabric/air freshener for the room. Thanks

    I just saw this product a few days ago at bed bath and beyond and it is amazing. It is a Samsonite Silicon collapsible 16 oz water bottle. When unfolded it looks like an actual water bottle. When rolled or folded up it is 2 by 3 inches big. Plus for me is it does not look like a colostomy bag like some others do.

  9. Carole Weston September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    I always pack a Foldable Pop Up Mesh Laundry Basket Hamper to keep all the dirty clothes in. It folds flat when not in use but holds loads of laundry. Available from Amazon. Also keep the complimentary plastic shower caps in hotel bathrooms and use to pack shoes.

  10. Marie Holcomb September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    Love the travel too about flushing the toilet. Also check the shower/tub to see if there is hot water & to see how well it drains. Found that out the hard way, smh.

  11. Diana Sanchez September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    Where can I buy the foot hammock? Thanks

  12. Deborah Parker September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    Thank you Laurie ‼️ Brilliant ideas‼️🌹💞🌹

  13. Chrystal Tuckness September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    I place my belts around the outside edge of the main compartment of my suitcase. They take up “no” real room.

  14. Nielle Smith September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    Hi there, love these hacks! I'm with your friend….we bring zip lock bags(reuse) every trip to put our TV remote in and Clorox wipes to wipe the room down before we do anything! Now, we will also flush the toilet. Thank you!

  15. Lori Putz September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    Love the ideas! Two "exceptions": don't put nail polish remover on cotton ball and then store in baggie. It will melt the bag. Also, putting plastic wrap over bottles and add screw tops is a great vhf idea BUT the liquid can't be acidic. I just got back from a cruise where I did that with lemon juice. When I opened it. The lemon had eaten the plastic.

    Hi Laurie I loved this video w all d hacks & specially d piece of self liner to secure ur cup or cell on table. 🙏😊👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  17. Heather J September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    Maybe not the best idea to leave any kind of bag with your cellphone charging. I've seen this and they have to announce that a bag was unattended and it causes a bit of worry. I say keep all your things within arms reach.

  18. Kelly Smlth September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    The walls inside cruise ship cabins are metal. We always pack magnetic hooks for hanging things that don't fit in those tiny closets.

  19. Amelia Zidek September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    I love you Laurie always and forever ♾!❤️

  20. Monica Wilson September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    Lots of great tips. I love your channel and content and friendly presentation. I use a collapsible dog bowl for a valet on the hotel nightstand for my wallet, keys, jewelry, glasses and phone. I put my Bible and iPad under or beside it. I have grabbed these important items quickly a couple of times when the alarm in the hotel has sounded in the middle of the night.

  21. Sharon Casey September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    If you antique shop or buy fragile things on your trips, here’s a great tip! – pack a roll of bubble wrap and some really big rubber bands. You can then protect your items on your way home and if you need to unpack anything when you go through security you can easily unwrap and rewrap everything! Worked great coming home from Paris after shopping at the Paris Flea Market and finding several lovely little breakable antique items.

  22. Christine Tulipana September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    When we travel to Europe we take cheap wash cloths from the Dollar store and just leave them behind because in Europe most hotels don't supply wash cloths and my husband & I use them. Also we take our oldest underwear (save them up for traveling) and leave them behind thus saving on dirty laundry coming back with us.

  23. Kathy Omlor September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    Love some of these new tips!! Great ideas!!

  24. Chris Franke September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    To keep all my charging cables from getting tangled place each cord in its own zip lock back. The will all lay flat and you do not have to keep up with rubber bands or ties. I then put all the bags and the plug adaptors in the small mesh packing cube. I tend to take it out when going through airport screening. It may not be needed but a friend had her back flagged for extra screening since the X-ray machine showed a butch of cords in the middle of her bag. By pulling it out it is easier for the screeners to see what it is and since it is in one packing cube it is easy to take out and put back in my back.

    Brilliant, Laurie! Going to use at least three of your ideas on my upcoming trip, thank you!

    So many useful tips… excited to use some for my upcoming trip!

    Hi Laurie! My 10 year old daughter and I love watching your channel together. Our travel tip is to use REUSABLE baggies for packing. I have ones I use everyday and some I keep just with my travel stuff. Reusable baggies are much more durable and come in super cute patterns and colors!

  29. Linda Curtis September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    Hi Laurie, great video! My tip is to schedule your return air home as late in the day as you comfortably can. I pack my day bag with my travel clothes and wear my bathing suit. I have my hotel keep my luggage safe after I check out and spend a few hours by their pool. Many Southern hotels have an pool snack bar which can offer you lunch. Before it is time to go, I use their spa shower, put my bathing suit in a “wet bag” or zip lock bag and now ready to travel back home after a restful day! 😍

    Love, love, love these videos! I needed a way to identify my bag, and I love the idea of a "monogram" painted on.
    One more tip I have – if you travel with a pillow, put two pillow cases on it. That way you can use it on the plane or the car, but you can take off the outer case and have a clean one when you sleep at night. I don't know how well it protects you from germs, but if you're carrying the pillow (and haven't packed it), taking off that outer case makes me feel like I'm not sleeping with all the travel grit and grime – especially if the pillow accidentally falls onto the ground.
    One last thing – I got some little tiny pill cases and used them for my lotion on my last trip. Such a great idea! They held a lot more than I thought they would. I'm a lotion fanatic and I only used 2. Special thanks for that one!

    Great Tips!!!  I have the Costco lunch box!!

  32. Robyn Guest September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    Excellent travel tips. I really enjoy your videos. 👍👍

  33. paogim30 September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    Laurie, thank you for your great tips. I stick to my cables/chargers a washi tape and write down my initials, some times when you are traveling with other people, they can get mixed up. And yes, I normally pack a change of cloths and underwear in my carry on or backpack just in case my checked bags don’t arrive the same day, I also told my husband to pack his cloths in two different luggages just in case one doesn’t arrive, witch already happened with his luggage the last time we went to Colombia, I gave him that advice just on time 😅

  34. UtahTabby September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    I think nail polish remover will eat through plastic sandwich baggies, but you can get polish remover wipes in foil packets. Although last item I flew with a ton of cosmetics, lotions, medical creams, packets and wipes etc, I got searched and wanded and scanned like crazy. They couldn't figure out what set off the machine, finally let me through. Now I don't take anything I don't KNOW I need, I figure I can buy anything else there in a small size and use it up or leave it with people I'm visiting.

    I use the hack with the ironing board to extend my bathroom counter space, however I place a clean towel on top of it to protect both my makeup / toiletry as well as the ironing board 😀

  36. Chris Hough September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    Great tips! I am flying from California to Washington DC in October, (I am so excited!) and several of these will come in handy! Because of neck problems, I have to take a special cervical travel pillow with me, and I accidentally left it in the hotel because it had a white pillowcase on it. I called, but they never found it. I now take one that’s teal blue and stands out. Love your videos!

  37. Paloma M. September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    I didn't get the washcloth/underwear hack. What is it that you are throwing away and why?

  38. Cheryl Wiens September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    Great video, Laurie!! Thanks for taking the time to share all these tips with us! ❤

  39. Dimitri Katzoff September 13, 2019 at 4:01 am

    I absolutely love all your tips and hacks, very helpful thank you…
    I have one Airline hack that may be useful for some folks. I love when they serve you a little Ice Cream for dessert, but it's usually frozen solid. So, what I do is order a cup of coffee or hot tea and dip the spoon in the hot liquid to help scoop it out of the container. Only works if the flight offers you metal utensils. 😉
