When on a recent trip, I noticed one traveler attached a colorful nylon "scrubbie" to his luggage. Not only was it cute, but really stood out from the rest of us with ribbon attached to our luggage. The dollar store sells them and really makes it easy to identify your luggage. Happy traveling!

All great ideas! Also, I stand near where the luggage is coming out (not on the other side of the carousel). That way no one else has the opportunity to steal my bag if it's on the carousel too long. I travel for a living, and have learned that there unfortunately are people who hang around luggage carousels just to steal bags. Sad.

I paint pictures on my black luggage. It's unique and easy to find.

I have plain, black luggage, which looks like many others. To identify mine, I took acrylic craft paint, and using a stencil, painted a flower. On the larger pieces, I used the end of a dowel to put pink polka dots on them. They were easily spotted, even at a distance!

GREAT IDEA !! I did the yarn thing the last time I went home to La and I was not alone. I think I'll take this advice next time around. Thanks for the post !

I did that too, and it works well, plus sometimes you get compliments from other travelers.

Since so many bags look alike nowadays, we put colorful stickers from a local store (a marine supply one, actually) on our luggage to identify them on the luggage carousel.

Making your luggage easy to identify quickly saves time at the airline baggage carousel. I use a brightly coloured tape available at art or office supply stores, and create an 8 inch tall initial and stick it to my luggage.

To spot your luggage easier at the airport when it comes on the conveyor belt, use a decal and paint a picture on the back of your suit case. You will be able to spot it easier then using ribbons. Works great and you never need to redo this.

What I do with my luggage is put a cloth type red tape, like the gray duct tape, around the luggage. Then I put big angel stickers on the tape, and I always get my luggage the first time around!

When traveling put brightly colored ribbon on your luggage. The more colors the better. When your pieces come around you will be sure to get them on the first go around.

I travel quite a bit and the stickers have yet to come off! I'm an angel lover so I know what to look for! (03/14/2005)

Finding Your Luggage at the Airport

My family has always used pom poms made out of yarn to be able to find our luggage. My mom buys yarn in the brightest colour she can find, and we can always find our navy blue and black suitcases.

To make pom poms: gather many yarn pieces (around 10 inches) length-wise, as if making a yarn doll. Knot a piece around the middle. Fold in half and knot another piece around all the yarn. (07/31/2005)
