Monday Rave: Real Smart
It's a cruel irony: People with clutter problems love buying magazines about how to control clutter, thereby creating more clutter. That's why I like Real Simple Magazine's Web site and its hordes of useful -- and paperless -- tips on organizing. Imagine my glee, then, when I discovered they have packing tips, too. Hooray!
I love Real Simple's focus on using everyday items in surprising ways (I seem to remember a whole story on new ways to use aluminum foil), and their "4 Double-Duty Vacation Items" slideshow doesn't disappoint. If only I'd thought of sticking an address label on my lost iPod!
In the site's travel section, there are the usual round-ups of packing tools (really, I don't think I need to buy a packing cube), but it also has bright little stories like ideas for car games for kids, instead of, say, telling parents to hand a child a GameBoy.
As for us Travel Loggers, we love travel, whether writing, reading, thinking or dreaming about it. Now I've got one more resource to scour for packing tips -- none of them involving aluminum foil.
I know there are other sites out there with similarly no-nonsense advice and easy browsing. Any other faves out there?
