Air Travel:Getting Through Security

Airline rules have changed and getting through security for air travel requires a little bit of planning. I’m not one who likes to wait and once I was completely unorganized and had to go through a security check. It was a bit embarrassing because I had lots of folded papers and old candy wrappers etc in my pocketbook which was in my backpack. There were also a lot of coins at bottom of my pocketbook that may have caused a problem along with hair clips that were metal. I had a laundry ball in my backpack (used as a natural substitute for laundry detergents). It cost me 50 dollars and because it contained gel, I had the choice of going back to the airline counter and re-checking it in my luggage or having it confiscated.
