Pack These Things on Your Next Trip

by UNIGLOBE Donaldson Travel -

Sometimes, it's the small things that really matter. 

This is especially true when you travel and are without the conveniences of home. 

Sean O'Neill of BudgetTravel.com posted a list of "8 Items You Will Never Pack ... But Should." A lot of these things you probably have around the house and tossing them in your travel bag could come in handy on your next trip. 

Among the list are bandannas - something that I know from personal experience is incredibly useful for a variety of reasons, especially given how easy it is to pack. I've used it for all of the reasons listed in the article: "hand towel, lens cleaner, eye mask, hair tie, headband, scarf, cooling device ... pillow ... sling for a sprained arm ... " and particularly, a "hobo handbag." That last one I've definitely used, whether it was for collecting shells on the beach or keeping jewelry together.

One item I never thought of before is a travel mug:

"To prevent damage, transport sunglasses or delicate souvenirs in an empty travel mug with a wide mouth—just make sure it's got a secure screw top. During your trip, the mug can be an ecofriendly to-go cup or a great decoy for stashing valuables in your hotel room (a coffee-stained thermos is an unlikely target for thieves)."
