A digital luggage scale should be part of every traveller’s bag of tricks. Airlines are clamping down on sizes and weights of every piece of luggage you take with you. Recently, I was visiting relatives in Mexico and taking a few presents with me. Without my own digital scale, I would have been over the allowance. Be on top of your game with a scale that makes weighing and re-weighing easy. All digital scales are not created equal, but this handy scale is small enough to store away in a drawer or shelf when not in use.
The easy-to-read, LED backlit screen displays pounds or kilograms. It beeps to confirm that the weight has registered. A friend was going on an adventure to New Zealand recently and borrowed my digital scale to weigh the sleeping bag she was taking as every ounce of her six-week journey counted. Always weigh the case empty and again with everything you think you need. If you are over, remove extra items you couldn’t resist packing and check the weight again. Weigh your laptop case, your purse or knapsack, and know your limits. Take care of it all in the comfort of your own home so that checking in is as streamlined as possible.
