Looking for some inexpensive gadgets to help traveling for business or pleasure easier for family's on the go? Check out these two cool products from iClever & Esky!

Let’s face it, traveling can stressful, especially if you bring your pets along for the ride. We regularly bring our dogs on 10 – 13 hour car drives, which can lead to quite a few messes , especially when you take into account we grab quick food that we eat on the go. Things can get even trickier when you are living out of a hotel room for a week. To make things easy on us for work and fun, we try bringing with us a variety of helpful items to make working on the go even easier. You may even be surprised how inexpensive some of these nifty gadgets can be for people who are constantly traveling!

    I like all of,these and I am pleasantly surprised that they are not expensive. The stain urine detector would also be good for the home.

    I don’t like sitting in the car for more than ten minutes. I get very antsy. I usually bring along a crossword puzzle book.

    Hi I hope you are enjoying your day so far? I just wanted to thank you for this post b/c it’s one that is helpful to just about anybody that travels! We have 2 Cats & 1 Sweet, Aging Husky so we are unfortunately not able to really go on vacations right now and even if we were, not many places will allow you to bring a big 95lb dog with you! We used to take her to the beach b/c my parents have a little place at the beach but my poor Lexie is almost 15yrs old and unable to travel now b/c she can not jump in & out of the car anymore, God Bless her sweet heart! It is so sad that you love your pets just like they are your children but they are only around for a short period of time! I know a lot of people that can use these very helpful tips and I will sure relay each of them to my family & friends! Thanks for the Post & Have a Blessed Day…Jana
