Must-Have Travel Items That Cost Under $10

We have several things we always bring with us when we travel. They’re not very large and we don’t need them every trip but we’re very glad we have them when we do. By this point, we don’t even bother to take them out of the suitcases when we unpack after a trip, because if we did, there’s a chance we’d forget to put them back. The best thing about these items are they all cost under $10 each and you might already have some of them in your own home.

Prepare To Never Be Stuck With A Low Phone Battery & No Phone Charger Ever Again!

OK, you guys…I know there are, like, a bajillion phone chargers out there. I mean, Joe and I have used an Anker brand battery bank for years and it’s really great in terms of being able to recharge multiple times before having to be recharged itself…but it’s a little heavy to carry with us everywhere. And we even did a whole write up on the Fuel Rod brand of cell phone battery that they sell at Disney parks.…but unless you’re near a Fuel Rod kiosk to be able to switch out your dead Fuel Rod battery, you’re pretty much SOL in terms of recharging abilities. But my friend Shawn passed this along to me the other day and after checking it out, yeah, it’s got to be one of the best things out there for a fast and easy way to get some extra juice for you phone when you’re out and about and just need a quick charge from something that’s small and light and east to carry.

The Airline That’s Shrinking The Size Of Carry-On Bags They Allow On Board

Full disclosure…this wasn’t one of those “Holy cow, who would have EVER thought they were going to do something like this???” proclamations. In fact, if you ask me, it was really only a matter of time.

Anyway, it was announced last week that starting on Monday, June 4th, Alaska Airlines will decrease the carry-on bag size limit from 24″ x 17″ x 10″ to the limits of what nearly every other U.S.-based airline has, 22″ x 14″ x 9″.

We’ve Told You Why To Use A VPN When You Travel – Here’s A Great Price For One!

As Joe and I have written in the past (here and here), when you’re traveling, it’s a really, REALLY good idea to use a VPN (Virtual Private Network). A VPN, (as per Wikipedia) “…enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network. Applications running across the VPN may therefore benefit from the functionality, security, and management of the private network.” (in other words, it gives you privacy when you’re online so no one can hack your passwords, banking or purchasing info, etc.).

If you already have a VPN, AWESOMESAUCE! But if you don’t have one, or if you’re in the market for a new one, we just got word of a great price on what has become our VPN of choice…
