I subscribe to the magazine Budget Travel and my favorite recurring feature is the “20 Tips” submitted by their readers. As I’ve been catching up on some reading over the holidays, I ran across this cooler tip from the November 2008 issue that I thought could be helpful for Hawaii travelers. This double-duty cooler idea submitted by a Budget Travel reader, Kelly Sortino from San Francisco.
If you’re planning a vacation and want to bring cold drinks drinks to the beach with you, use a [flexible] six-pack cooler as a toiletry bag. When you get to your destination and unload your toiletries in the bathroom, the bag can be used as a cooler for he rest of the trip.
Excellent idea, Kelly! I have a lunch bag cooler that I think I’ll use to try this trick on my next visit to Hawaii. Do you have a trick that’s cooler? Let’s hear it, please!
