    Avoid additional airline baggage fees with this handy little tool.

    If you've flown recently, you're probably aware of the checked baggage fees most airlines have been charging trying to recoup some of their losses. Because of those fees, more fliers are trying to pack in as much as they can so they can getaway with one piece of luggage. If you're like me, you have been standing next to the scale as they weigh your bag, hoping it doesn't go over the allowed weight before an additional charge kicks in.

    Well, now you don't have to worry. Along comes the perfect tool: the Balanzza personal luggage scale. This hand-held device is a digital tool for weighing luggage before there are any surprises at the baggage check. It has a capacity of 100 lbs.

    The scale is available at www.balanzza.com and at Bed, Bath and Beyond for around $20.
