Gadgets on the Cheap

Travel Blog  •  Eva Holland  •  07.22.09 | 3:36 PM ET

Frugal Traveler Matt Gross has just posted his latest in the New York Times: the top ten travel gadgets that cost less than $50. It’s a good list—I’ve never been much of a gadget lover myself, but I especially liked his suggestions of a money clip instead of a wallet, a power strip with multiple outlets, and a good old notebook and pen.

My travel gadgets list includes a pair of noise cancelling headphones, unpleasant sounds can ruin an otherwise pleasant flight. Its also nice to have a power adapter kit, to limit the number of chargers you have to bring. Portable DVD players, PSP’s and video iPods are all a good way to pass the time when you’re waiting on your flight or in the air.
