Never Pay Unexpected Baggage Fees Again When Traveling


                              I received a sample of a digital luggage scale.

  My family is traveling this month to New York for parents weekend at the Merchant Marine Academy. This is my son's first year at the Academy and we are so excited to check out the Academy. My son has a list of items that he would like me to bring to him, most of it is healthy food. That boy is always hungry. I would normally mail the items to him but since we are traveling there, I will take advantage of saving money on shipping costs. I will also be bringing 20 boxes of protein bars to the academy for the Cookie Cafe next month. Sure, I could just ship the heavy protein bars but again, I want to save money on shipping costs. The trip is already costing us a lot of money so saving money by not shipping items is always a good thing. I am glad that person in charge of the Cookie Cafe said that we could bring the goodies with us for parents week as they can store them until next month. I know it is a cookie event for the students but they also requested healthy items that the kids can take back to their room for snacks. Since I am an ambassador for Genuine Health, I have plenty of protein bars to bring. Now I just have to make sure my suitcase does not weigh more than 50 pounds. I am glad that I have my Digital Luggage Scale to check the weight before we get to the airport. Sure I could use a regular scale to weight my suitcase but I don't have one because I don't weigh myself anymore.



Never rearrange your luggage at check-in or pay unexpected baggage fees again!


Weighs up to 110 lbs 

  My Voyager Digital Luggage Scale is also great for when I travel to blogger conferences for bringing back all my swag. This scale is small enough to tuck into the front pocket of my suitcase. This scale weighs items up to 110 pounds and is easy to read too. This awesome luggage scale beeps too!  I love that it shuts off after 20 seconds so it does not waste the battery. When I do need to replace the battery it uses one small Lithium Battery

  I am glad that I have this luggage scale as all these protein bars sure do weigh a lot! I have to also pack other food items for my son. Sure I could distribute the items between all the suitcases that we will be bringing but I want to keep all the food items in one suitcase as we are just paying to check one suitcase. We are checking all the food items as I don't want to risk having any of it taken away at security. I remember my last trip and having security swipe all my food items and that was a big hassle. 


Save time and money now with this easy-to-use travel scale.


 While we are on the subject of traveling smart, you need to check out how to fit more in your suitcase with these Packing Cubes. My boys love using these Packing Cubes when they have to share a suitcase when we travel.

  1. I always use a travel scale! There is nothing worse than having to re-pack your bags at the last minute in the airport because one of them is overweight. And yes - I learned that lesson the hard way. Everyone should have a luggage scale!

  16. I don't think I could travel without my weighing scale. I don't like unespected fees so I make sure to know how much I've packed ahead of time.

  17. I have done a little bit of traveling post them putting the weight amounts on carryons and charging more for checked in luggage. But most of my traveling was before. Having that digital scale seems like it would be a lifesaver.
