I don’t know about you, but when I’m packing for a trip my apartment is a wreck. I have clothes everywhere – usually spread across my bed, toiletries in shopping bags fresh from the store and the washer and drying going at full force. Trying to decide what stays and what goes is a big decision. Packing, for me, is the least fun task that accompanies a trip.

So, when I got the chance to chat with Simon Cowell and Howie Mandell at the finale of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” for The Jet Set I had to ask about their travels across the United States conducting auditions and what it was they couldn’t leave home without. Take a look:

After shave? What? Really? That’s a product I haven’t ever used! Maybe I should take a tip from Simon and add it to my luggage now so it’s something I don’t cut later. On Howie’s comments though, I can also be a little weary of hotel sheets and linens. I can’t possibly find the room to pack my own.. but it’s a good thought.
