Each Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s reader tip comes from reader Martin, who shares a packing tip you can use to do good when you travel:
“I have an under-bed storage container where I put all underwear, socks and clothing, including shoes, that are on their last legs. Almost worn-out, or not things I’m going to wear again because of who knows: fashion, fit, color, etc., but have one or two more wears in them. I pack them, wear them, and strategically throw them out as I travel, to make room for new purchases, or I leave them with a note to please donate them after my last hotel stay. I’ve almost always come back with less then I left with.”
It’s a great idea. Reminds me of this tip. Thanks, Martin!
