Travel Tip: Throw extra earbuds in your travel bags


If you’re like me, every now and then you’ll take off on a trip, only to realize you forgot to bring your headphones or earbuds.

If you’re also like me, you’ve likely received a new pair of earbuds with every cell phone you’ve ever bought and you’ve acquired even more of them from airplane flights where they give them out for free, so you have a stash of them at home.

Why not put those extra headphones to good use? They don’t take up much space, so toss an extra pair in each of the bags you typically travel with. Sure, they might get banged up a bit, but they’re not doing any good in that random junk drawer you have.

You can stick a pair in a small compartment, this way you’ll never find yourself unable to listen to music or watch video on your phone or laptop when you’re on a flight or a train journey or a bus ride.

And don’t even think about being the person who listens to entertainment without them, unless you want to be the appetizer if the flight turns out like the movie Alive.
