More Packing List Essentials

Duct Tape - Many travelers swear they would never leave home without their travel sized rolls of duct tape. Think 'torn luggage', for one.

Plastic Wire Ties - If you can't fix it with the duct tape, you might be able to fix it with the wire ties. I also use mine to lock my suitcase when it is left in a hotel room during the day. (Just make sure you have something to cut the ties open with.) I have found packages containing multiple sizes at the dollar stores.

Travel Scissors - And speaking of something to cut with, I would never travel without my folding scissors. I have carried these through security and NEVER been stopped because of the scissors. I 'lock' my luggage with the plastic ties and store the scissors in an outside pocket of my suitcase.
