When traveling I am always in fear of leaving important stuff behind while distracted with the sights. I had some close misses.

I've been looking at the new toys on the market such as the Tile tracker. There seems to be a bonus for overnight train rides in India as it would beep if someone tries to take the luggage away.

But the reviews of Tile on Amazon are not great, and there seem to be other alternative trackers around. Has anyone used these and have they been useful?

Saw this idea (I forget which brand) online a few months ago, and thought it was a really good idea, for life, not just holidays (kind-of like a puppy? ). I think it was a bit too expensive for me at that time. If you start counting: keys, handbag, purse/wallet... plus travel cases....

I just thought: one for each shoe when you have to leave them outside! Didn't enjoy my last barefoot journeys!

It's 20 each here, and a similar one with slightly different features is 10. They are probably most useful in travel, where you can't easily go back to retrieve things. (I recently left my backpack, with laptop etc, in a taxi on my way to transatlantic flight, it was all a bit stressful, so I am really looking for good hacks.)

The language in the illustrations doesn't inspire confidence.
