here are 23 travel hacks for the airplane my tips and tricks will help
0:06
you when you are packing your carry-on suitcase and some of these hacks are
0:10
tricks that you can use on the actual airplane we travel on the airplane a lot
0:14
and I realized that a lot of things that are a way of life for me are really
0:19
travel hacks that I wanted to share with you they are solving a problem for me
0:23
and I hope they will solve a problem for you now this is a carry-on suitcase I
0:28
just want to make that clear while we are getting started these are both carry
0:31
ons this is a carry-on suitcase this is a crayon travel bag I do not carry a
0:36
purse as my carry-on when I have to go on an airplane because it will
0:40
inevitably fall off my shoulder when you’re going through in the airport you
0:43
want your hand to be free you’re gonna have one hand on your phone or either
0:48
carrying a cup of coffee in the airport and so the other hand is going to be
0:52
rolling that roller bag behind you your suitcase is going to be pulling behind
0:56
them so you only have one hand free and it’s gonna be on your phone or it’s
1:02
going to be carrying a cup of coffee or a baby so take my bikes and use a
1:07
backpack and then pack a little crossbody bag for later when you get to
1:12
your destination and then you’ll be hands-free if you use that backpack what
1:17
I do is I take my purse contents and I put them in separate little bags that
1:21
are gonna go into my carry-on backpack like I have all these little bags that I
1:25
take inside my backpack and they each carry different things like I would pull
1:30
out your Visa card your ID your insurance card and some cash those are
1:35
all gonna go in a little bitty wallet part not the huge wallet from your
1:39
actual purse I’m going to put chapstick in a couple of lipsticks that I might
1:44
use on vacation in a little bag and those are going to take up less space in
1:48
your carry-on backpack I do take a crossbody bag pull out and let’s have
1:53
gone through security or when I get to my final destination I put this little
1:57
thin crossbody in my backpack carry on and then when I get to my final
2:01
destination I can slip my little bags in there or just my cards and my very much
2:07
essentials that have to go with me when I’m out and about in a foreign country
2:12
or on my vacation another travel hack that I love and I just found out a
2:16
couple of years ago after like ten years of travels is to pack your liquids
2:20
horizontally in your tsa approved liquids bag you can actually fit more in
2:26
if you lay them horizontally when you are packing your carry-on suitcase
2:30
I suggest rolling each piece of clothing or folding them and putting them in
2:36
packing cubes I reviewed both of those ways and now I can honestly say I can’t
2:43
believe it but now I prefer folding my clothes and putting them in cubes rather
2:47
than just rolling another hack is for when you are watching the entertainment
2:52
system on the airplane it is going to drain your battery most likely even if
2:57
you have this cell phone on airplane mode so I suggest having a power bank
3:02
and this is one of my husband got me it is slim line there are several that you
3:06
can choose from we have used this pink one that I’ll list below also but this
3:11
is all you need and it gives your phone a full charge so when your battery is
3:15
getting really low on the airplane you’ll use your charging cord you plug
3:19
it into the end of this power bank and it will give you a full charge then when
3:24
you get to your hotel room you need to charge this or the night before your
3:29
flight you need to charge this so you stick this in the end of it and then the
3:37
little cord that it comes with is gonna go in here and you’ll plug that into the
3:42
wall and I just plug this in all night so that it gets I don’t know how long it
3:47
takes to charge this Powerbank all the way so I just let it charge all night in
3:52
my hotel room or in my house before I leave for my vacation if you did forget
3:59
to bring a charging cord for your phone you can use the little USB of your
4:03
little wire and stick it in the side of your TV and then hook that
4:08
to your phone to charge it or you can just bring a power bank and this is just
4:14
easier for me to remember another travel hack for the airplane is how to watch
4:17
something on your phone without having to hold it the whole time you want to prop
4:21
it up on something I did have a pop socket which works great there about ten
4:26
dollars on Amazon but now I use this to go walking with so I need something to
4:30
prop it up with you can unfold the airline magazine and then lean it
4:35
against the spine of the magazine and that helps but for me it works best when
4:40
I have a rubbery type case this is a little thin this one that I have now you
4:45
can also use they have all kinds of gadgets out there but you can also use
4:49
something like this and it holds your phone up for you I love this and it’s
4:55
easy it doesn’t get tangled up in your backpack you can also prop your phone up
5:00
on a very cheap pair of sunglasses sitting upside down on the tray table
5:04
they do not work on the Ray Ban sunglasses for some reason but they work
5:08
on really cheap sunglasses which that’s another travel hack is to bring in the
5:13
cheapest sunglasses from the dollar tree they sell sunglasses of all modern looks
5:19
for a dollar at the Dollar Tree so take those on vacation I’ve seen some
5:23
people putting their phone in a ziplock baggie and then poking a hole through
5:28
that baggie and clipping it onto the little tray table clip but I don’t like
5:34
that because I feel like it’s gonna be blurry if the bag is not completely
5:38
tight around the opening of my cellphone so I just use the little prop up hand
5:44
things I like to take headphones because you never know if you’re gonna have an
5:48
online entertainment system and I use a gift with purchase bag that I had keeps
5:53
my headphones flat they don’t tangle but for those of you who don’t have a bag
5:58
you want to use you can also just wound up your headphones like this and use a
6:04
Bulldog clip to just hold it like that and that would keep them a little bit
6:11
contained in your backpack or you can just use a little bag my husband uses
6:16
huge Bulldog magnet clip to hold the curtains together that is my next travel
6:22
hack you know that little space in the hotel curtains where it wakes you up at
6:26
like 5:00 a.m. because you’re in the hotel room that’s facing the Sun just
6:30
clip it together using a Bulldog clip wherever you want to get one from and it
6:35
will help close all those curtains together they block out the light when
6:39
you’re trying to sleep late on your vacation on the fifth day the last day
6:44
because you can’t sleep late until like your fifth day of vacation if you’re
6:48
like me and take old deodorant sticks to your vacation spot and they start
6:54
breaking off because you’re at the very bottom of the barrel just put those
6:58
pieces on a folded up piece of Kleenex and then just wipe them under your
7:03
armpit for part of the deodorant stick around to the end to the number one so
7:09
brilliant travel hack that I just heard of especially if you are going to a
7:14
remote location I suggest for this travel hack of using google maps offline
7:19
and what you’re going to do is you’re going to type in the address in Google
7:24
Maps while you are connected to an internet wireless connection and there
7:28
are directions online on how to do that and then you just pull it up when you’re
7:32
at your remote location and it pulls it up for you you don’t have to be
7:37
connected to whatever it is you can connect to to use Google Maps in a
7:42
remote location another travel hack especially if you’re going to another
7:45
country is to get cash from ATMs throughout the country not the currency
7:50
exchange little kiosks in Airport there’s a much higher rate of exchange
7:54
in the airport when you do get cash from the ATM store them in different locales
7:59
one of the smartest travel hacks I know is to take a picture of the inside of
8:03
your passport and your driver’s license and your insurance cards and put those
8:07
in email email them to someone who might know you from over in the states and
8:13
then if you are in trouble with the law like the good old boys never meanin know
8:20
if you are in trouble with the law or if you need it and you lost your passport
8:25
you can always get a hold of it electronically by signing into your
8:29
email I also recommend taking an empty water
8:32
bottle it can be small or the taller version because airports now have the
8:36
water fountains that you can actually stick a bottle with underneath another
8:40
travel hack is to store your necklaces in a straw and that is way too high
8:44
maintenance for me so I recommend using like a gallon baggie and then roll it up
8:50
very tightly and then secure it with like ponytail holders or you can use
8:55
this thing that I have I found it and the reason I like it is because these
9:00
necklaces do not move the space for you to put your necklace into is very narrow
9:05
and I can also store my earrings in there and I roll it up and these things
9:09
right here are super super super tight so the necklaces don’t get tangled like
9:18
look you cannot hear the necklaces moving around and getting tangled up
9:23
these little doohickeys would be great for earrings or holding earrings I just
9:28
found these this past week the reason I like these is because they’re one-handed
9:33
use it just makes them a little fancier anyway they have plenty of room for you
9:38
to store little earrings or the larger earrings and they are secure this is a
9:43
great travel hack for two different kind of liquids that I can recommend Vaseline
9:48
because for if you have rash a rash between your legs from walking on the
9:52
beach with a wet swimsuit you can store them in these little bitty discs that
9:56
actually have a ton of room in them I have one for cleanser and the reason I
10:02
suggest using cleanser is because my bottle of cleanser is huge and you only
10:07
need a little dab like a pea-sized dab of cleanser each day and you just put it
10:12
in there and the cleanser is thick I cannot recommend a moisturizer because
10:18
my moisturizer leaked only one time out of all the times I’ve stored my
10:22
moisturizer in those little discs but the moisturizer was too runny and
10:27
and Vaseline those are thick products that will not leak ever and I’ve
10:32
probably taken them on six airplane trips another travel hack is to wear
10:36
your heaviest shoes on board the airplane not storing them in your
10:41
suitcase that way you have more room in your suitcase one of my subscribers gave
10:45
me this great travel hack and this is to wear two pairs of socks through security
10:51
you wear both socks going through security take off your shoes and then
10:55
right before you put your shoes back on take off that outer second pair of sock
11:00
second sock and trash it a smart way to save your socks another trial hack is to
11:06
pick the busiest time of day to travel and that’s late morning or in the
11:11
afternoon and then volunteer as soon as you get to the airport to get bumped if
11:16
it’s too packed birds it’s over solo flight another travel hack is to put
11:20
your leg through the strap of your purse and then keep that purse in between your
11:25
two feet while you’re at a sidewalk cafe eating in another country especially I
11:29
will link below an article by USA Today about how to avoid getting pickpocketed
11:35
in Barcelona which one of my friends that happened to we also check Trip
11:40
Advisor for things to do in places to eat in every single city where we are we
11:45
won’t like to eat where the locals eat but another travel hack is to check
11:49
Pinterest and you can just type in their things to do or places to eat in that
11:53
city great idea that I didn’t even think of now the number one travel hack that I
11:58
think is brilliant is using water-soluble paper you lay it out on a
12:03
table and you brush shampoo or liquid soap on one side with a paintbrush and
12:09
then you flip it over and paint and paint the soap on the other side of the
12:14
paper and then hang it up to dry and then you cut it into these little tiny
12:19
rectangle pieces and then store them in like
12:23
little container like this and then when you get to your final destination and
12:26
you didn’t get to bring your liquid bottle of soap you can pull out one of
12:30
those and it will activate with water wash your hands get soap all in it I
12:36
think that is brilliant and then the paper either dissolves or you can just
12:40
trash it when you’re done with it but those little bitty rectangles I think
12:43
that’s so smart let me know if you have a travel hack for your airline of choice
