At least not in coach. If you’re LUCKY and you happen to be on one of the few that still have pretzels, you’ll have to dig those 2½ broken pieces out of the teeny, tiny bag while your tummy rumbles. As a travel writer, I have learned how to pack for moments like this.
You’ve seen my multiple packing posts and videos, but while I’ve shown you how I get the MOST into my little carry on, there’s one thing that I’ve left out. My anti-hunger pack. I am NOT going to be one of those foolish people who spends $20 on a cup of coffee and a piece of coffee cake at the kiosk by my gate. I like to arrive cheerful…Cheerios™ cheerful.
My little secret
Remember when your kids were small and you packed that bag with Cheerios™ in case hunger hit at the most inopportune time? Well, at 62 I do the exact same thing. I make sure to pick up a box of my favorite Multi-Grain Cheerios™ in the cereal aisle at Walmart.
Just like when Ben was young
I pack up a cup or two of Cheerios™…only now I put them in a container that’s a little larger than I need. I tape a spoon to the top, and once I’m comfortably on board my flight, and the attendant is coming down the aisle with drinks. I ask for a cup of black coffee and a glass of milk. While the passenger sitting next to me looks on, I pour the milk over my delicious Multi-Grain Cheerios™ and I’ve got a GREAT BREAKFAST in COACH!
Take THAT first class travelers.
Whether it’s a long haul flight or a quick road trip to a nearby beach, head to Walmart and pick up some Cheerios™ for your #SummerOfCheerios
Walmart is offering some Cheerios™ coupons, which makes it a great time to stock up: coupons
