Ok, so I am starting a new feature where each week I am picking one awesome travel item/deal/whatever to tell you about.
Some of these is because I love them, some are affiliates (and I will only become an affiliate of a company or product I love and use often).
This weeks awesome travel item comes from ThinkGeek.com This site is amazing and has all sorts of nerdy, random and useful items.
This weeks item is the
Grid-It Ultimate Organizer.
This cheap, ingenious device is seriously a bunch of woven elastics that hold your shit.
($9.99 for the small one, $14.99 for the large one.)
No more needing to dump your entire bag to find a pair of headphone, that pen, or you flash drive. You know, those items that undoubtedly have made their way into the very bottom of your bag, and are now hiding somewhere in the seam.
Nope, now you can store all those little, important, often used yet often lost items easily. I think this is pretty amazing. Its simple. Its cheap. It comes in 2 sizes. It fits in your bag or carry on makes finding stuff easy.
(small = 4.5 ” x 7.5″, large = 5″ x 10.25″)
Because as a traveler, we all know that we will loose these items when we are in a rush. Or trying to get somewhere.
Or really, really want to listen to music to drown out the sound of the 2 girls in the dorm who are all,
“OMG! I know, he was SOOOOOOO cute. I totally could have hooked up with him.”… “I mean, that chic was SOOO drunk. What a slut!”…or, my favourite…“ I mean did you see those people? They are like so poor and uneducated. They didn’t even know how to speak English! It’s like I wanted to help somehow, but I didn’t want to get my new white pants all dirty. I just bought them. Aren’t they cute?”
You know…those people….
So yes, find those noise drowning out headphones, or your small, stabby pocket knife faster with the
It could save you sanity.
ThinkGeek.com is awesome and its why I became an affiliate. I have so many ThinkGeek points racked up. I seriously buy a ton of stuff from here myself.
They are also a great place to get the coolest gifts for people. Especially when you are travelling. Order awesomeness online and have it shipped directly to the receiver. Save a bundle on international shipping.
