Our readers are an ingenious bunch, and every issue we print 20 of their best travel tips. Some particularly clever ideas involve everyday items you have sitting around the house.

An upturned frisbee on your hotel dresser is a good place to keep loose change, keys, cell phones, and all that other stuff you don't want to misplace.

Bring a shoe organizer and hang it on a door. It's perfect for holding brochures, travel documents, toiletries, and, of course, slippers and shoes.

Bungee cords come in handy when you're on the move with lots of luggage. Strap a duffel bag to a suitcase with wheels so you can zip through airports and hotel lobbies.

A bungee cord also works as a makeshift clothing line for drying bathing suits and towels.

You could even string up dental floss as another way to dry your clothes. And in a pinch, it'll hold your glasses together when you inevitably lose a screw.
