Have you ever lost the charger for your smartphone while traveling and dashed out to buy a brand-new one? Next time, you might want to think "lost and found" to score one for free. The next time you're traveling for work or pleasure, ask the hotel's front desk if they have a charger in the lost and found they can loan you. Chargers are the No. 1 item left behind at hotels and also the item least often reclaimed by hotel guests. In most cases, hotels will let you keep the charger if the item has been in the lost and found for more than 30 days.
