Dear Dave,
You can imagine that I travel a lot for business.  As such I'm always on the lookout for great travel hacks.  I'm guessing most of you love passing your favourite travel hacks along to your clients.  Here are some of the best I've seen:
1. Use empty eyeglass casses to keep charging cords and ear buds organized (I actually prefer sandwich bags as they take less space)
2. User dryer sheets in your suitcase to keep clothes smelling great
3. Roll rather than fold clothes
4. Put socks and underwear in shoes to save space

5. For women, use those weekly pill organizer containers to keep multiple sets of ear rings organized.

Thanks for this website for some ideas, but just Google "travel hacks" for more great ideas!

Happy and selling!
Dave Emery
