Tuesday Tips

After talking to numerous customers already throughout this Travel Sale, a lot of people are concerned about weight limits. Airlines are now charging a crapload of money for bags that go over their set weight limit, which sucks. A few people have said that they've had to sort through their stuff in the airport and try and squeeze items into another bag so that they wouldn't have to pay the fee. Another person said they had to buy another bag to even out the weight. So of course, we have a solution to this problem. It's the Digital Luggage Scale. It's a very simple scale, just clip it on to your bag and it will give you a reading of how much your bag weighs. It can weigh bags up to 88 lbs. You can take it with you for your return trip. The scale itself weighs only 8lbs.
Today at work a coworker and myself had a little bet going about which was the best way to pack clothing. I personally have been turned on to the Pack-It system that we sell, but we were discussing which weighed more, rolling your clothes or keeping them folded flat. She was convinced that rolling your clothes made them heavier. I said that it would weigh the same because they're clothes, you aren't adding anything to them if you roll them. So we folded them flat and added them to a backpack and weighted them with the scale. It came out to 6.3 lbs. Then we rolled them and added them to the backpack and it came to 3.6 lbs. The only reason folding them weighed more was because she left them in the pack-it folder. She was dumbfounded. She couldn't believe that rolling the clothes was the same. She just couldn't wrap her head around it.
Anyways, the scale is on sale right now for $14.99 originally for $19.99.

Happy Traveling!!
