If youâ€™re an experienced snowbird or simply vacationing in a warmer climate for the very first time, itâ€™s important to be prepared when you make that long journey, especially if youâ€™re traveling by car. You probably already have the basics covered: snacks, a cooler and your medications, but did you know that there are some fantastic new products available to help make your trip even more comfortable and convenient?
We picked five must-have items that can help make your next journey more enjoyable:
Sitting for long periods of time can cause leg fatigue, cramps and even blood clots. To combat these common problems, consider investing in a massager. This lightweight item is designed to fit around your calf. Its small size makes it easy to pack, and its pumping action can relieve aching muscles, stimulate blood flow to your legs and even build strength because it works the calf muscles by simulating exercise. Itâ€™s cordless and runs on AA batteries, making it a convenient choice for those on the road.
When it’s time to let go of your car, you might wonder how you’re going to enjoy your favorite outings or run errands. But when you stop driving, you don’t have to lose your independence. On the contrary, you might find a new sense of freedom now that you’re unburdened from the effort and responsibility of car ownership. There are other options for getting around town and other ways to connect with family and friends. Read on for four suggestions on how to be independent without a car and enjoy a new sense of individuality.
1. Take a Stroll
Find out what’s within walking distance of your home and set out for a pleasant walk to pick up a prescription or grab a bite to eat. This also kills two birds with one stoneâ€”you get your daily exercise while getting your errands done. Walking with a neighbor or friend during the daylight is a good way to make sure you stay safe. If you’re less solid on your feet than you once were, a helper like the Metro Walker or Walkabout Rollator can keep you walking strong without worry.

Tis the season for giving, and that means it’s also a time of hauling, carrying and carting. There’s no better way to get through it all easily than with a handy Versacart! You’ll find yourself reaching for it again and again, on errands as well as around the house. Here are some of our favorite creative uses for this transit cart.
1. Christmas Shopping
It’s lots of fun to wander the shops in search of the just-right gifts for your family and friends, but it quickly gets tiring when you’re lugging your purchases around. Enjoy shopping more by stashing your stuff in a Versacart; the swiveling front wheels make it effortless to push in any direction. Cooking a holiday meal? Be sure to take it along when you get groceries to save your arms the strain of hauling bags in from the car.
2. Gift Wrapping and Giving
Store your gifts and wrapping supplies in your cart and tuck it out of the wayâ€”at under two feet wide, it’s a snap to hide in your closet. When you’re ready to wrap, just wheel it to your work surface; everything you need is right there! And it’s easy to put away when you need your table for something else. Once those gifts are wrapped, just pop them back into the cart. It’s ready to take along to your holiday gatheringsâ€”just like Santa’s sack, but without the back strain! And if you have packages to mail to far-flung loved ones, your cart makes that post office trip so much easier.
3. Holiday Cleaning
Expecting guests? Let your Versacart help you get ready. Its roomy nylon bag has space for all your cleaning supplies, so you can fill it up and wheel it from place to place as you do your chores. And once your company has left, cleaning up is a breeze: gather used wrapping paper, wash up table linens, take out the recycling and more without strain.
4. Post-Holiday Errands
After Christmas, there are always lots of little chores: returning gifts, taking down decorations, carting recyclables to the bin. Your Versacart makes every task easier by relieving you of the strain of carrying multiple objects or hauling something heavy. And as the year progresses, you’ll come to rely on your cart for all kinds of things: trips to the farmer’s market, laundry day, gardening and shopping. This is one holiday helper that makes your life easier every day of the year!
