On The Move

items. Instead of putting all your chips
behind one suit, why not take along
a blue blazer that, while not quite
dressy enough for the boardroom,
serves adequately as an evening
jacket? The all-wool blazer travels
well, and if you bring along two
different pairs of pants, you've got
two different outfits.

PACKING RIGHT

• BY RON GASBARRO

S

omeone once
developed a rule
of thumb for
packing: Put everything
you think you need for
your trip on your bed.
Then put half of it back in
your closet.
Packing for a business
trip means you have to be
even more space-frugal.
For a three-day zip be-
tween two cities, every-
thing you tote should fit
into one bag. You cannot
afford to have the luggage

you check go on to
Anchorage when your
meeting is in Pittsburgh.
Because your clothing
must look impeccable,
taking along a clothes
steaming brush is not as
extravagant as it sounds.
One of the best ones
around is by Franzus
Worldwide Travel Products
and sells for around $45.
Not only is it a powerful
unwrinkler of lapels, ties
and pants, it has a crease
attachment.
By steaming and
pressing the creases of
shirts and pants, your
clothes have that "just
back from room service
look." The Franzus model
is dual voltage and also
has a lint remover.
Franzus also makes a
mini cordless shaver that

operates on two AA
batteries. It has an angled,
twin-head screen for close
shaves. And it features a
protective cover that has a
built-in mirror for those
quick touch-ups on the
way to a meeting.
Because space is at a
premium, you cannot take
your entire collection of
rolodex, memo file,
personal phone directory,
calculator, clock, calendar
and computer with you.
With the Casio BOSS
64KB hand-held computer
(9000 series), you can have
all these items in a six by
four inch device
that you can slide
in your coat
pocket.

When you get back to
the office, this unit can be
connected to your office
computer so you can
transfer information back
and forth. The company
has also released a series
of data cards that fit into
the Casio BOSS, with
information on medical,
legal and financial topics.
The Casio BOSS sells for
$299 at Sharper Image,
and other top-quality
department stores.
If you are a shutterbug
and love to take snaps be-
tween appointments, the
Canon Sure Shot Date not
only has a built-in alarm
clock and a self-timer so
you can get in the picture,
it also identifies each
picture with the date and
time it was taken. It sells
for about $248.
Finally, you need a bag
to throw it all into. The
Ultimate Flight Bag (UFB),
new from Insell, holds a
week's worth of business
wear in its three roomy
compartments. It fits under
airline seats and rolls
through air terminals in its
six wheels.
The UFB costs $150 and
can be purchased at
throughout the Detroit
area.
