[Tools of the Trade]

Skip the hassle of tracking down mini bottles of grooming supplies with Travelon’s ( Toiletry Sheets (50 per pack, suggested retail price $4.99). Available in soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, shaving cream and laundry soap, the sheets suds up when mixed with water. So you can use that one-quart bag to pack yourself a snack instead.

Tired of setting off the metal detector with your belt buckle? Beep Tec’s Beep Free Belts (, $20 to $29) boast composite, metal-free materials that let you glide on through without a sound. Once you arrive at your destination, you can trade the nonmetallic buckle for a dressier brushed nickel one ($8) before heading into your meeting.

Organize your outfits and keep your suitcase neat and tidy with Magellan’s ( Packing Cubes ($16.85). That way, if a TSA agent needs to open it up to take a closer look, he or she won’t have to delve through your delicates to do so.
