As I’ve mentioned before, I must admit that I’m not very good at packing light. I’m more of a “throw it all in and sort it out later” kind of packer, but even so, there are a few things I always end up NOT packing…then wishing I had.
One of those things is a portable speaker. When I’m tossing things into my open suitcase, there are so many other things that seem more important at the time (shoes, an extra sweater, maybe my fuzzy bathrobe if I’m feeling extra indulgent). Somehow, a portable speaker never quite makes the cut.
But then I arrive at my destination. Somehow it always feels silly and not really worth it to listen to music on my phone, and my somehow my phone never ends up fitting into the in-room docking station, so somehow I just don’t listen to music in my hotel room. Normally, this doesn’t bother me, but sometimes you just want a little music!
So, when I learned about this travel hack, I was thrilled. It’s so easy, and it makes all the difference.
Just put your phone in the (empty) ice bucket. All of a sudden, you’ve got an instant speaker.
Hope you can use this tip, too. 🙂
