Traveling via plane is great, as it lets you get to faraway locations in a fraction of the time it would take in a car. Unfortunately airlines are trying to find new ways to increase the cost of flying. One of their favorite ways to stick you it by charging you extra for multiple pieces of luggage, and overweight bags. The latter is especially tricky because people don’t often remember to weigh their bag when packing. Heck, I don’t even have a scale in my house, so I just hope that I’ve not packed my suitcase with too much stuff.
If you do much flying, you may want to check out the Balanzza Mini, a travel scale. This tiny scale will take up very little space in your bag (and only adds 1/3lb to your overall weight), and could save you a bundle. You need only attach it to the handle of your suitcase, and lift. The device has a 100lb capacity, which should be more than enough to deal with your luggage. The $25 price tag assures that it will pay for itself in no time.
