Dear Traveler:

Happy Holidays! Just in time for the traveler on your gift list, I’m thrilled to announce that Anne’s Packing Board™ is available now at most AAA Travel Stores, fine luggage stores & on line at

As seen on The Today Show, it’s the most innovative way to organize your suitcase. Illustrated packing tips & my favorite checklist are printed right on the board to make packing easier for any trip. Bonus: Be sure to write your name & contact information on the board in the space provided, just in case your bag-tag is torn off, you’ll have your information inside your bag.

Another great gift idea for both men & women is the
3-in-1 Travel Blanket, Towel & Sarong. Available in four colors: Blue, Pink, Plum & Gray it’s packed in a deluxe travel bag that you can use at the beach, pool or in your car.

Travel Tip Contest Winners
Thanks to everyone who entered our contest! Here’s one of our recent winners tips:

To help stay moisturized while traveling, I place water activated baby towelettes which contain baby oil/lotion in a small Ziploc® bag to use in the shower. These are dry so they don't add weight or leak and are so much softer than hotel washcloths. They also work well for a quick freshen up on long plane/train trips. -Thanks to Grace from Kent, WA
