Busy professionals can hardly spare time to shop before a business trip--even for the bare necessities.
With that in mind, consider the following two catalogs, which feature an array of travel products and accessories designed to increase your productivity without wasting your time.
- Finding travel-sized shampoos, deodorants and sewing kits can be a daunting task, even for seasoned business travelers. Convinced there isn't a better way, many continue to force full-sized toiletries into already crammed suitcases.
If this scenario sounds all too familiar, it's time to kick the habit. The PackLite quarterly catalog could be the answer: It does the hunting for you, coupling convenience with a surprisingly extensive array of essentials.
Everything in the catalog has been downsized to save luggage space, including shaving cream, mouthwash, toothpaste, hair spray and gel, lotion, sunscreen, body soap and more.
Miscellaneous items that can be life-savers on the road are also included, from hosiery repair kits and spot-remover sticks to lint brushes and ear plugs. Prepackaged travel kits come in a variety of brands, allowing you to choose a mix that fits your needs.
- When you're preparing for your trip, don't overlook mobile office accessories--these can be just as important to business travelers as an efficiently packed suitcase. If you'd like to take your office with you on your trip but know it won't fit in your suitcase, check out The Mobile Office Outfitter.
Available since 1995, this annual catalog offers a line of products to help mobile professionals maintain productivity while doing business on the road. Page through a copy of this handy catalog, and you'll find an extensive selection of mobile desks and workstations specifically designed to help you keep a handle on pens, files, calculators and other miscellaneous items while you're away from your office.
Or you can select from a variety of power inverters for notebook computers and printers, as well as power extensions that enable you to set up as many as three electronic items at once.
Portable organizers for important documents are also available, as are laptop cases and cellular phone accessories. For executives seeking personal development in the areas of management, sales or organization, a collection of booklets is also available.
