Travel Thursday: Free Hotel Items

Remembering to pack everything for a trip is nearly impossible, but hotels often give away some of the items travelers commonly forget to bring.

Some of the free items are obvious like razors and toothbrushes, but what about a charger for your phone? Chargers are left behind so much that hotels will keep them and lend them out to other guests.

Hotels sometimes even keep fresh pairs of new socks on hand at the front desk.

If you're traveling with kids, keeping them busy isn't a problem if you forgot the electric games at home. Hotels can provide anything from crayons to bathtub toys.
