For me, one of the more stressing moments of airline travel is the baggage claim. My luggage of choice are black duffel bags from Wal-Mart, which means that I get excited a lot as black duffel after black duffel pops up–only to be disappointed when I realize it is not mine. Or, even worse, I mistake someone else’s luggage for my own and begin to leave with it.
However, I have a solution for this problem which plagues me: duct tape. Specifically, leopard print duct tape.
I make certain to apply this leopard print duct tape to all four sides of the bag–usually on the handles–to insure that no matter the angle, I will be able to spot my luggage. Bonus points for the fact that no one else will mistake my black duffel bag for their own.
