The most anxiety-inducing part of traveling somewhere you need to pack heavy is the brief moment between zipping up your luggage for the final time and lifting it.


If you are traveling for an extended period of time or to somewhere with exceptionally cold weather, your luggage can start to get heavy pretty quickly. Most airlines have a limit on how heavy a single piece of checked luggage can be before requiring an extra fee. If you are like me before discovering this scale, you would weigh yourself on a bathroom scale with and without your luggage to make sure it was acceptable, but not anymore.


The Etekcity Digital Luggage Scale lets travelers weigh luggage easily and reliably. The scale has an upper weight limit of 110 pounds and is built with solid construction and durability in mind. The scale is small in size, making it an easy addition to your luggage without tipping it over the edge itself. The scale also includes a thermostat to make sure any temperature-sensitive pieces of luggage are safe during transit.


In addition to being handy, the Etekcity is simple to use with an easy-to-read display with overload and low battery warnings. The scale is also covered by a one-year warranty.


The scale is affordable, coming in at $13.99 from the manufacturer’s website.

The Redneck Games

One of Georgia’s greatest cultural gifts might be coming to an end. The Redneck Games, which began in 1996, have seen a dip in attendance in recent years. A lack of sponsors means many of us might never know the joys of “bug zapping by spitball” unless an influx of travelers can help revive the event.
