Save on space by transferring products like foundation and liquid blush into a contact lens case. source
Pack your shoes inside shower caps to keep dirt from getting on your clothes.  source

Use buttons to keep matching earrings together and keep them from getting lost in the corner creases of your bag. source
If your heading to the beach don’t forget to pack some baby powder. Pour a small amount onto your hands then rub it on your skin to remove sand. source

Don’t forget about your house plants while you are away. Make your own automatic watering system by filling a vase with water. Using a 1/4″ nylon cord place one end in the vase touching the bottom. Place the other end into the soil of your potted plant about 3 inches deep. The nylon will wick the water from the vase and water your plant as needed. source

Car Travel Tips with Children

Posted in Reno Reservations, Reno Rooms, Reno Travel, Travel, Travel Tip with tags , , , , , , , on October 25, 2014 by Reno Lake Tahoe Reservations


No, you’re not almost there yet — in fact, you haven’t left your ZIP code. When a trip to the grocery store leaves your kids whining from boredom, the prospect of a family road trip is enough to inspire nightmares, and unless you have a bus fitted with private bunks and a fridge stocked with snacks, you might imagine your kids will spend the whole trip cranky and bickering. Don’t assume the worst, though. With plenty of advance prep and an arsenal of distractions ready to keep little ones happy, this is going to be your best trip yet.

Step 1

Outfit the car with gear that should keep the kids physically comfortable. Attach sun shades to un-tinted side windows to keep the back of the vehicle cool. Place a blanket at each child’s spot in the car in case he feels the air conditioning is too cold; you might also pick up battery-operated personal fans for kids to use when they feel warm. Stow a small pillow for each child to ensure comfortable napping; neck pillows are ideal for kids stuck in middle seats.

 Step 2
Create a seat schedule if your children always fight about who sits where and when. (This only works if all your kids are out of car seats.) Divide up each leg of the trip into parts equaling the number of kids; for instance, with three kids, break a nine-hour trip into three-hour blocks. Assign kids to their seats on a rotating basis, or let each child have his choice of seats for one leg of the trip. Keep the schedule with you in the front seat to avoid confusion about whose turn is when.

Step 3

Dress every child in his most comfortable clothes. Let kids wear pajama bottoms, oversized T-shirts and bedroom slippers if they want. Ask each child to keep one sweatshirt or light jacket with him in the car. He can use it to cover up a sloppy outfit before going into a rest stop or pull it on if he wants more comfort.

Step 4

Load a bag with snacks. Keep it within your reach, or stow it in the trunk and pull out a few new items at every stop. Pick low-sugar foods, since you don’t want confined kids on a sugar rush; nutrition expert Joy Bauer suggests string cheese, whole nuts, rice cakes and sliced oranges and apples as tasty low-sugar snacks. Dole out a snack every few hours to keep kids feeling satisfied. Keep a jug of filtered water in a cooler to refill everyone’s water bottles periodically.

Step 5

Give each child a paper bag to fill with books, video games, stuffed animals or handheld devices — including earphones and extra batteries — to keep at his seat. Ask that he pack the rest of his toys in his suitcase to prevent the car from feeling like it’s stuffed with junk. Pick up a few surprises, like new coloring books and handheld travel games, to pull out once you’re on the road.

Step 6

Schedule stops every two to three hours. Insist each child get out of the car during each stop, unless he’s asleep. Lead everyone in a five-minute walk around the rest stop, or pull the car over to an empty corner of the parking lot and lead kids in a quick round of yoga stretches and jumping jacks. Everyone will feel much less antsy once back in the car.

Keep loose chargers and cables organized with a glasses case.


Use straws to carry travel-size amounts of skin care products.



Put a dryer sheet at the bottom of a suitcase to keep your clothes smelling fresh.


Use a spring from an old pen to protect chargers from bending and breaking.



Skip the long lines for airport bathrooms.

It may seem like common logic, but the first bathroom in the terminal is the most crowded one. Use the next one to skip the long waits and save precious time.   Source:

Use a binder clip to protect the head of shaving razors.

If you forget your wall plug, charge devices through the USB slot on a TV.

Roll clothes, instead of folding, to save tons of baggage space.

If you have clothes that need to be folded, use tissue paper to keep them from wrinkling.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
