Remember yesterday how I suggested photographing your bags so you know what they look like? Well, another tip my sister taught me is to tie an old tie to your luggage to make it more easily identifiable. My dad had a few old ratty ties lying around, and instead of throwing them out (they weren’t in good enough shape to donate), she uses them or parts of them to tie around the handles of checked luggage. That way they’re easy to spot—especially those typical black suitcases.
