While I was on vacation, I realized that I needed to share with you something that I do when I travel:
This corkscrew stays in that pocket in my suitcase. I do not remove it upon return from vacation. Why? I never know when I’ll need a corkscrew on vacation! This way, I don’t ever have to remember to pack it. A little tip from me to you.
Of course, this is in my suitcase that I check when I’m flying. You don’t want to carry a corkscrew in your carry-on bag. It will most likely be confiscated at security.
Really, you never know where you’ll end up without a corkscrew:
- At a friend’s or family member’s house. Seriously, some people don’t own them.
- At a hotel.
For this reason, I’ve had Wine Tasting guests state that they actually keep a spare corkscrew in their purse or glove compartment. Brilliant!
The lesson here is:
You can never have too many corkscrews.
So today I’m doing my first ever giveaway!
