Bring a Rubber Door Stop
Greetings from the JW Marriott in Bloomington, Minnesota! I’m here for Natalie’s destination baby shower at Mall of America (yes, it’s a new thing). If you want to follow my travels in real time, here are my social channels: Facebook | Instagram | Periscope | Twitter
Now on to the tip: Each Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from an anonymous reader, who says:
“No matter if I’m traveling alone or with my husband, a few hours or a thousand miles from home, I travel with a rubber door stop to use at any hotel. When I turn in for the night, the door is locked, and I push the rubber stop in under the door—closest to the opening jam. Just another layer of security.”
A great tip. Thanks, anonymous reader!
