    I think the travel tray is amazing. It keeps me from losing items in my luggage or leaving them behind at a hotel. It's like a teleportation device between the nightstands of wherever I go.

    Say for example I'm in Paris, heading to Africa. Mints, computer glasses, a Chromecast for hotel TV, a metro card. Before, I'd have packed up my main bag and either throw those things in to get lost or jam them in my pockets at the last minute. Since my travel tray is the first out, last in item, it's always out until I leave the hotel room, and I just throw anything in it without really thinking about it. That metro card I'll need in 2 week? Sure, why not. It's better than a jean's pocket.

    Then when I arrive, I open my bag and setup my travel tray; all the random odds and ends are right there again, waiting for me.

    It's really just a portable nightstand teleportation device. That's what it is.

    I used my Small Travel Tray in the way nolegrl suggested for an overnight stay last weekend, and it worked so well! In it I packed my electronic essentials (usb plug, phone and watch cables, and usb “goodnight light” as my 3yo calls it) and a toe separator/stretcher thing I sometimes use and never have a good place to pack. And at night I added my chapstick to it (but not my glasses, which I prefer to keep separate on the nightstand - I’m blind without them so there’s no chance of leaving them behind). It was especially useful the next morning when we were in a rush to leave. I threw the charger and cables in, added the hairbrush I had been using while my toiletries bag was packed into the car, and threw it at the top of my Pop Tote.

    I agree with everyone, the TT is magic. I use mine to hold computer chargers and cables. I have one for each computer: plugs, charger, adapters, a couple usb sticks. All in one package, and it chinches shut. All the cords are coiled, no kinks. Great!

    I use TT‘s to carry chargers and cables (etc.) for my laptops. The cords don‘t kink, they coil.

    I've always liked it for travel to contain my toiletries, but never found it as useful as when I stayed in the hospital for a few days. The TT kept everything contained on the little table next to my bed. If I would have knocked things off the table there was no way I could have gotten them myself. I would definitely gift one to someone I knew with a hospital stay coming up!

    At the risk of duplicating an earlier post, I use the large trays to hold my go bowls. Perfect. Just wish Bihn made a bag large enough to hold the go board (18 inches square, 2 inches thick)

    I have been using a small travel tray for my glasses at night next to my bed & I love love love the fact that people here said that it’s good for a travel bedtime kit/case because I have been guilty of forgetting things in the hotel room when leaving and I lost something very dear to my heart so I’m trying to figure out a way to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

    Thank you all for giving such amazing ideas!!

    I have a large Travel Tray that I've never used until yesterday when the light dawned. It is now on my dining room table filled with a variety of sewing accessories that were cluttering up the dining room table and acting as a cat magnet. It nicely holds the accessory pack with extra bobbins and sewing feet, small scissors, seam ripper, marking pen, pincushion and pins, sewing shears (these are a little too long so handle down and padded cover up) and other miscellaneous items. Our daughter and her two cats live with us and the .... cats took a huge liking to the pincushion. I found it on the carpet with loose pins around it ... probably very lucky they didn't eat one. In the travel tray is much better place for it than on top of the wine cabinet.
