Scent Tips: Travel Defrag
- USB Drive: go paperless. A flash drive discretely holds 4-8 gigabytes for documents, passport information, presentations. Get water/scratch-resistant.
- Lip Balm: in change purse below
- Mini flashlight: add to keychain or luggage zippers, you'll be glad you did.
- Hand Sanitizer: on-the-go must for cruise, airports, plane, everywhere. CDC recommends alcohol-based-60 percent.
- Change Purse: Have change, money, a credit card, stash for small items
- Pen: a must, at least 2, customs lines.
- Multi-Use Tool: not carry-on, be prepared w/scissors, tweezers, bottle opener

Pre-Departure Travel Tips
Changing time zones makes your body's sense of timing tip. Being little miss sunshine means exposure to light will catch up with your brain. (even if you thought you already lost it)
- Trade in some nights for going to bed later or getting up earlier to match the time zone you're heading to.
- That goes for your eating schedule, you need your body to be your friend when you travel.
- Avoid alcohol a few days before you head to that dreamy destination wedding or massive conference - let's face it you know the bars and tropical concoctions are waiting for you, they are not going to run out of rum, wine or beer before you get there. ON the other hand you may run out before you leave or even finish business.
- If we've reserved an all-inclusive getaway for you, awesome! You won't make it to your room without champagne or a rum punch welcome. If you have never flown with a hang-over, you will probably only do it once.
- Eat light meals during the day, get up and exercise, stretch. You are going to need your mind and body. Fresh fruit, vegetables, less deep fried and prepared food will help your time zone transition.

This trick for how for hiding money while you travel is a good one. Stash an emergency bit of cash inside a lip balm tube and keep it with you. (your wallet which is the usual target.)
Use a tube of lip balm laying around the house. Turn up and remove excess lip balm, fold your bill(s) in half length-wise, choose your bills and amount, tuck it in! Want a video on this? Click Hide Your Money title above!
