– In real life, I just gotback from Kenya yesterday.
So I was supposed toget back two days ago, I missed my flight, a lotof mess up in New York.
Actually finally got home.
Now I have like 24 hours and I'm leaving again for Bali.
Not complaining at all.
I love traveling.
I decided in this shorttime that I'm unpacking and repacking, it'd be a good time to test a lot of travel hacks, because I'm trying to save a lot of time and keep things organized.
Anyway, let's get started with the video.
♪ Hungry they went forus to take us down ♪ – Anyway, my first trick islike for booking your tickets.
Just in general, a goodtip is if you book a window and an aisle seat, you're more likely to get an empty seat in between you.
This is normally if you'retraveling with two people or more people than that.
And this works reallywell on long flights, and it's really nice, because then you have an extra seat in between youand you guys can lay down, and have more room, orsomething, like a chair to sit stuff on.
Anyway, so it's a reallynice tip if it does work out.
And now, to move on tomore of the packing hacks.
I don't know if some of these work, I'm kinda testing these.
A few of 'em I have done, afew of these I have not done.
The first hack is using a glasses case to keep your cords andheadphones from getting tangled.
I never really have aproblem with mine getting majorly tangled, I do inmy backpack for school, but never really when I'm traveling.
So I don't know if this isreally like an actual problem that people have, butwe're gonna try it anyway.
So I have some cords, andI have a glasses case.
This is like a weird glasses case though, it's not like a normal hard one, which I don't know ifthat's what they're meaning in this trick, but we're gonna try anyway.
Yeah, this is not gonna work out.
I think this is what theymeant by glasses case like a hard, if you know what I mean, like this and not like this.
So my mistake.
To me, this seems pointless, kind of like a waste of space almost, and if you are wearing glasses, why would you put, I don't know.
It just seems a little weird to me.
It could work for people.
Personally, that's justnot it, so, next hack.
So, it says to use cotton pads, and put it in your makeupso that it doesn't crack.
I've only had makeup crack like once.
Then again, I don't really wear makeup, so I don't really bringit when I'm traveling.
So this could just not be a problem for me because I don't really bring it, but, I guess we could try it and see.
I wonder if it closes, actually, now that I think about it.
Pretty much all it's sayingto do is to take a cotton pad like this and to put it in your makeup, but that's just notgonna close it, will it? Wait, maybe it will.
It doesn't even close.
Do you see this? It's like, open still.
But it's protected.
It's going to spill open.
I feel like that's gonnamake it crack even more.
Fail? Maybe I got the wrong size cotton pads? I don't know, do people actually do that? It's just not practical at all.
That hack did not work.
Wow, we are off to like a bad start.
None of these are even useful.
All right, next, use a Tic Taccontainer to hold bobby pins.
Oh, okay, this is actually a good one.
I am actually going to usethis Tic Tac container.
What am I gonna do with these? Wait, this is gum.
Tic Tacs have gum? (crunches) Okay, so, I have an emptyTic Tac container now.
I just literally pouredthem all over my desk.
I also grabbed some bobby pins.
And it's literally justsaying to stick them in the Tic Tac container like this, I guess? I'm actually gonna use thisbecause I was just thinking literally five seconds beforeI started filming this video I needed to pack bobbypins but I never know where to stick them, so, Tic Tac container.
This one's a good hack! I like this one.
Good job, internet.
You got one right.
Next hack, binder clipsto protect your razor.
So I just kind of stuck it on.
I don't think this one'sgonna work out though, because I don't know if Ihave the wrong size razor, but does that seem protected? Maybe a little bit.
I see the idea behind it.
I just feel like it's gonna pop off.
I don't know.
I'll keep it in and see what happens.
Okay, so, this hack saysto use a contact case to carry your liquid makeup.
I assume they mean ifyou're traveling carry-on and this would flag it.
I don't think it would though, actually.
Is this going to be enoughmakeup for somebody? I mean I guess it works, causeyou just squeeze it in there.
Okay, so it's full of makeup now.
This looks horrible.
Okay, so you put it in that.
Which is what they're saying, and then you have enough makeup, but is that enough makeup for people? I guess if they're going carry-on they're really not staying very long.
Maybe you'd have to bringa couple contact cases.
This could work for somebody though.
I guess it works.
It's in there.
I give this one like a halfyes, half works, half fail.
Oh, I've used this one before.
Use straws to keep necklacesfrom getting tangled.
This is a good hack, actually.
Because my necklaces doget tangled when traveling.
Here are some straws that I have.
I'm gonna grab some necklaces.
You take a necklace and you take a straw.
You open the necklace like this, and you pretty much justfeed it through the straw if that makes any sense at all.
Oh, what if my necklacedoesn't fit through the straw? I think I found the hack fail.
This is not gonna work out.
I only got it halfwaythrough before it got stuck.
So I guess your necklace wouldhave to be really skinny.
Probably no beads on it like this one has, otherwise it's not gonnago through the straw.
But I have used this hack before.
I don't know how it workedthen and now it's not working.
I think it's just this necklace.
These travel hacks arejust not working out.
This one's good.
I actually use this, and Iknow a lot of people who do.
Use dryer sheets to keepyour clothes smelling nice.
You basically just likestick them in your suitcase, or if you're bringing a laundry bag, bring them in the laundry bag, that way once you do have laundry, you stick them in that bag, and it does not smell as bad.
I just used this on my Kenya trip, because we had lots of laundry.
We were out working every day, so everything was smelling horrible.
That's a good one.
All right, then the next hackuses an Altoid container, and I just cannot keepall these mints everywhere that I just emptied out for this video, so Paisley is taking them.
That is a lot of mints.
What are you going todo with all of those? – Eat them.
– All right, well there you have it.
Next hack says to use a mint container to carry your medicine.
I just don't understand this, because if you have medicine it should be coming inlike a bottle or a box.
If it's over the counter, it should be in something like this.
So, why would you putit in a mint container when it's already packaged? Especially if they're talkingabout, like, ibuprofen or something.
I feel like it'd just bebetter to bring a bottle.
And they have little travelsized ones at the store.
Could you imagine somebodythinks you have mints, and they take one and it's medicine? Anyway, this just seemslike not a great hack to me, so I'm going to stick withthe bottles and the boxes and give the mints to Paisley.
So, there you go.
Next hack says, “Store itemsin your shoes to save space.
” I think they're meaning like tennis shoes.
I normally do stick mysocks in my tennis shoes that way I'm saving space with that.
So that's a good hack ifyou have the right shoes and stuff to stuff in them.
For packing, the last oneis to use plastic wrap and you put it over your bottles so that it doesn't spillout all over your suitcase.
Basically what this one is saying to do is to take a piece ofplastic wrap and your bottle, and you unscrew the lid.
Can't do this one handed.
All right, take five.
You unscrew the lid, and thenyou stick the plastic wrap, and you stick it on top of the bottle, and then you screw the lid back on.
So basically what thisdoes is it keeps your stuff from spilling, like evenif it explodes somehow, it shouldn't really spillall over your suitcase and it kind of prevents spills and stuff.
So this is a good one.
I never really have things spill, and I keep all of my liquids in a bag so that if it does spill, it doesn't spill all over my clothes.
But if you don't have that, then this is a good option or alternative.
All right, we're at the airport now.
Hack that we figured out fromexperience is to do what? You don't— Take a picture of your parking spot.
– Yeah, there you go.
You got it.
Take a picture of yourparking spot, the number.
That way you don't loseit, the little card.
You'll always know where you parked.
Because we've definitelyrun into issues with that.
So that's a hack, and a good one.
Not a fail.
All right, so our nexttravel hack is for security.
We always bring empty water bottles.
and we empty them out with water, and then you can fill them back in once you get through security.
That way you always have water, you don't have to pay for it.
But we did figure out thatyou can freeze liquids, and then they can go through security.
Which is a good hack if you have a certain drink that you wanted, because it'll unfreezewhen you're on the plane, and then you have it, sothat's our hack for security.
So we just checked with TSA agents, the like guard guy that was there.
We asked him if youcould take frozen liquids through the TSA screening, and he said yes, you can, so now we know.
– I would have guessed that was a rumor.
– It's true.
Yeah, now we know.
That's actually a good hack.
I feel like I'd actually- It is a good hack.
– use that.
But yeah, you could freeze otherstuff and bring it through, and then you have it on the plane.
Now we know.
Now that we're on the plane, we have two more hacks, and this one I actually didn'tknow about until recently.
So if you're in the middle, and normally you can't move this bar.
There's a switch rightthere that you press.
And then you can lift it up.
So it's right there.
Anyway, so it's a hidden switch, so that you can let that armrest up, and then you have morespace for whatever you want.
That's that trick, and it works.
All right, and then our second hack is if you want to watcha show on the plane.
If it's one of the planesthat doesn't have a screen, like a TV screen, like this, and you want to use your phone, you stick your phone into the bag, like so.
And so you zip it up and then you take wherethe little switch thing is.
You fold it down, put itback, and then close it.
And then you have a littleholder for your phone.
There you go.
Those are our plane hacks.
And Bailey is here, too.
So we finally made it to Bali, but unfortunately my luggage did not.
So here's a tip: don't lose your luggage, which really you can't do anything about.
Anyway, we finally made it to Bali, and we thought of another good tip which we actually brought, but we didn't really thinkof putting in this video until now, and that is tobring an extension cord.
So a lot of times when you'retraveling out of the country, obviously they don't havethe same plugs as you, so you can use your adapter and converter, and then just plug into an extension cord, and then you have like fiveplugs instead of just one.
So it's a really goodhack that we figured out, and it's worked really well this trip.
So I highly recommend that.
And then, in Australia, wehad a layover in Australia, I accidentally left mypassport on the plane, and didn't really figure it out until we were at our next gate, anyway long story short, don't lose your passport, but you can bring aphotocopy of your passport, which I would recommend doing.
Stick it in your bag orsomething, and that way if you do lose yourpassport, you can get home.
I believe you can gethome with a photocopy.
That's what they say.
So that's my next trick.
Just don't lose your passport in general, but I would keep a photocopy just in case so you can actually get home.
So another hack that wehave figured out does work, and I actually, not even gonna lie, this isn't even really a travel hack because I use it at hometoo, but if you shower and you need something dewrinkled, well with typical hotelshowers this works, you can just kind of hangit like this in the bathroom and then the hot water willsteam it, and you can actually bring a bottle of dewrinkler and spray it on whateveryou're wanting to steam, and it will actually completelyget rid of all the wrinkles.
So this is a very good hack especially if you need to look nice and you're in a time crunch, just shower and then you have yourstuff not wrinkled anymore.
So it's a good tip, but I know it works cause I've done it multiple times.
So hopefully you guys enjoy this video.
I hope all my tips and tricks helped.
This was like half testing, half telling.
Well now hopefully youhave some more tricks that help you when you're traveling, because traveling is verystressful, and anything that can help helps.
But hopefully you guys enjoyed this video.
Thank you guys so much for watching, and I'll see you guys next week.
