Traveling for summer break? Check out these tech essentials on eBay

It may still be cold and snowy where you live, but look ahead to next month. Think about the grass turning green, leaves sprouting on trees and that summer break trip that’s seemingly taken forever to get here.

For most people, it should now be less than a month away so let’s discuss your packing list. Now I’m going to assume you’re heading to a warmer climate so we’ll talk about those essentials. Don’t forget things like shorts, sandals, sunglasses and sunscreen. Maybe bring a good book or two.
