As I do more and more travel and I stand at baggage claim watching little black suitcase after little black suitcase glide by and people frantically checking name tags trying to claim the correct one, I thought I’d share one of my best tips for travel. How to pick a suitcase. You see, I never have a problem spotting mine on the carousel simply because I chose to be different.
Choose a suitcase that is BOLD!
Don’t be afraid of color and a unique style. My bag is a large purple duffle bag with a blue heart luggage tag. Try something like this set pictured below with a fun tag and you will always know which luggage is yours!
Now tag it too!
I promise you when you see it coming, you will know it’s yours!
Not sold yet? Well let me tell you the other reason I love a bag like this:
The rollers let you push it while standing upright OR while walking. I didn’t think that was a big deal but it’s much easier to push a bag in line when it can stand upright and be pushed along (especially when you pack heavy like I do).
Picking a hard shell protects your valuables much more than a soft sided bag.
