Hey Friends! This is my first post for tips for traveling, so I decided to go with my favorite “go to” item. Every since studying abroad I have brought rubber bands with me. I take about 10, just in case. Here are 3 ideas for using rubber bands while you travel.
1) If you tend to indulge in a lot of culinary temptations while on vacation, you might see your jeans are not fitting too well and you can’t get them to button. LOL! Use a rubber band buy putting it through the button hold and attach it to the jeans button. This will give you a little wiggle room prior to hitting the gym when you get home.
2) You may roll your clothing to get more space in you luggage like I do, but why not use the rubber band to help keep all your rolled clothing from unrolling and maximize your space. This is a great help once you repack to head home. This little trick might help to make a bit more room for souvenirs.
3) I can’t take created for #3 but this is brilliant! Take a bunch of your rubber bands and weave them together to make a chain. Use the chain for a laundry line when traveling. You might need more rubber bands for this one. I did this in college and it worked great! Click on link below to see a video.
