Short Cuts:BETTER YET
With a little foresight and
a dash of proactive creativity, travelers can avoid carry-on
distress. Try these easy-to-implement tips culled from road
Zip it. Resealable, transparent sandwich bags
are ideal for storing toiletry items, makeup products and the like.
Not only do they allow security scanners to see the contents
clearly, they help prevent countertop spills when further
inspection is called for.
Lose the laces. Now that footwear is a major
focus of airport security forces nationwide, consider wearing some
type of easily removable shoe, such as mules or loafers. With no
laces to fumble with, they can speed up the boarding process
Pocket the goods. With carry-on restrictions
more stringent than ever, space is a precious commodity. A travel
wardrobe of jackets with multiple pockets and roomy cargo pants is
ideal for stashing items such as cell phones, snacks, bottled water
and small cameras.
Ship it ahead. Still stressing? Consider
overnighting those travel necessities. The shipping cost may be
well worth the lower blood pressure.
