Hints From Heloise: It's in the bag

Dear Readers: Heloise on the go! In late March, I did a HELOISE ROAD TRIP: three states, nine airports, two speeches and two newspaper visits in six days.

From San Antonio, Tx., to Dulles, Va., then Washington, D.C., to Albany and Troy, N.Y. then home. This was a working business trip, but David, my husband, came with me, and we did find a little time to enjoy the surroundings.

First was a speech to the Bed and Breakfast Building Business Conference. Next day, we stopped in at The Washington Post, which runs my column. Took a walk through the newsroom, said “Hi” to many friends and had a quick lunch with my editor. Next day, I stopped in at the Hearst News Bureau, then took in some sights and a quick drive by where I used to live in Arlington, Va., during my junior-high years!

Off to Albany and Troy for a visit to the Albany Times Union, which also runs my column. We went for a tour of the new, BIG printing presses. You want to talk about super-size rolls of paper! Thursday night, in Troy, I was privileged to be the speaker for a fabulous event for cancer “thrivers” at the Nancy B. Clemente Cancer Fund dinner. A big Heloise Hug for all of you!

Each hotel had a “breakfast on the go” in mini-handled paper shopping bags. Of course, I saved them and used them on our trip. Here are some ways they can be helpful:

  • Organize small purchases in a suitcase or carry-on.
  • Stow essentials (keys, lipstick, cash, ID and one credit card) for a day of sightseeing. No big purse to carry.
  • Use for trash in a rental car.
  • Add tissue paper and it’s a gift bag.
  • Perfect for newspapers and magazines.
  • Fill with nibbles for late-night munchies!
