You see the ubiquitous multi-plug everywhere. Sometimes they are in a socket, sometimes at the end of an extension cord. There are simple multi-plugs and fancy power strips with surge protectors, fuses and even on/off switches of their own. You see them everywhere except when you need one – that’s why we carry one with us whenever we travel.

   We have arrived at a motel room many times and found that every electrical socket is used. There are lamps, a TV, refrigerator or microwave in every available plug. That’s why we carry one.

Inexpensive Yet Effective

   Ours was yet another dollar store find that has served us well. Whether it was the diffuser, a charger our laptop or some other device, this little gem has been worth its weight in gold more times than not. Especially since, by the time we are settled in our room and find out that we are socket-deficient, you really don’t feel like going out again,

  Then comes the executive decisions. Do we want the lamp more than we want the laptop or the diffuser? Or maybe you have to plug your phone in at the bathroom, where there’s that one open socket for the hair dryer. Oh wait, the night light is in that one.

   This little multi-plug now frees us from such conundrums and is easily remembered, because when we unplug the chosen appliance, you take the plug right along.

  It did not take long for us to decide this was a tool we needed. And when we saw one hanging on a peg at the dollar store, we snatched it up. It is a small piece that fits well into our travel basket. The multi-ply certainly is a recommendation for your in-room bag for when you go a-traveling.
