With the cost of flying increasing at a frustrating rate, it seems as though just purchasing a ticket isn’t enough for many airlines. They’re charging for drinks, snacks, use of headphones, and now they’re charging for carry-ons, and checked bags are charged according to their weight.
So how do you know what hidden fees you’ll experience as far as baggage weight before you get to the airport? It’s not always convenient to try to weigh your large, awkward luggage on your scale at home, and any self-respecting human being has already set their scale back at least 5 pounds (right?).
So, would you rather be welcomed to your flight with a big fat surprise overcharge for a bag you thought didn’t weigh that much, or invest a small amount of money on an investment that will save you money with every bag you check?
The EatSmart Luggage Scale
is lightweight, easy to read and to use right out of the box, and is compact enough that you can take it with you on your flight to weigh the many souvenirs you’ll be bringing back home.
Just wrap the straps around your luggage handle, click the buckle, and turn it on. You can even select the unit of measure you prefer. It also auto-calibrates, so you know it’s accurate, and can weigh bags up to 110 pounds. And, to be honest, if you’re bag weighs more than 110 pounds, you should seriously re-examine your priorities.
I even weighed my purse and discovered that, even after it was cleaned out, it weighed 3.1 pounds. Not bad, since I’m sure I removed at least 5 pounds of change first!
The EatSmart Precision Voyager Digital Luggage Scale is a must-have for any traveler, whether you’re packing for business, or one of this year’s premier blogging conferences, you’ll want to invest this useful travel companion. In fact, it’s on sale for $19.99
