[watch Travel baggie hack on YouTube; running time 3:01]
Amazingly simple tip that has helped quell my (considerable) anxiety about arriving or departing without mission-critical dongles, USB cords and other electronic doodads when traveling.
- the appropriately-sized zippy freezer bag for electronic crap
- an index card and writing device
What you do:
- make list of the crap that goes with your crap on index card
- stick in bag
- check list ITEM BY ITEM when packing on either end
As I show in the video, you want to account for all moving parts, as it were. So I don't just list "remote", I also list "USB stick for remote" and "hideous foam case for remote." (Well, I abbreviate.)
And don't forget: putting your name and number on all your stuff makes you a nerd, but it makes you a nerd with a much higher chance of being reunited with your crap if the two of you become separated.
