Reader tip 1Bring Rubber Shelf Liner
Today marks the first installment of the reader-submitted travel tip, which we’ll be sending out every Friday from here on out. It’s a good one, and it comes from reader Lynn R.:

“Since I often travel with my husband & we enjoy a good gin match, I’ve found that bringing a piece of rubbery shelf liner to lay on the tray table stabilizes playing cards or a phone, or a pen. A piece cut to about  8 x 9 inches can easily be brought along.”

Here’s what Lynn’s referring to (I think!),  (UPDATE: Now the correct link!) for less than three dollars ( shipping). Thanks Lynn!

    I bet it’s this stuff:
    Anyone with a tool box probably has some scrap lying around.
    Is there a standard airplane tray table size? I never really paid attention.
