Some posters have suggested to hold up a hem on a pants leg, hold a suitcase together if the zipper breaks, mark luggage for easy identification, general repairs. We bought a flat, bright orange package at WalMart a couple years ago and just used some this past February to secure our boxes of beer we bought at the Pacifico Brewery in Mazatlan.

Also, sometimes in addtion to duct or packing/strapping tape we would bring knocked down boxes or mailing tubes. You can use the tubes to protect aquired posters, calendars, artwork or small items and reassemble the boxes with tape for fragile items, filling the boxes with socks and such as your 'popcorn.'
