5 Things to Leave at Home on Your Next Trip

There are a handful of things everybody packs for a big trip that they don’t really need to. According to The New York Times, here are five of those items:

  1. A voltage converter. The power adapter that comes with nearly every electronic product likely already converts all incoming voltage into what it needs. 
  2. Hair dryers and most bathroom items. Pretty much every hotel, hostel--and most Airbnbs--are going to have a hair dryer available for you. The same is true for things like shampoo and soap. 
  3. A fist full of dollars. A.T.M.s are everywhere and are usually cheaper compared to those in the United States. Ideally, you should bring a card that doesn’t charge foreign transaction fees.
  4. Most of the clothes you’re bringing. Fact: you don’t need a different outfit for every day of your trip.
  5. Anything you “might” use. Rain gear is fine; two umbrellas in case you lose the first one is excessive.
