Are you planning your next trip, but want to avoid excess baggage fees? With proper packing techniques, enough stuff for at least seven days can fit into a carry-on suitcase without incurring excess baggage fees. Switch out paperback books for an e-reader and ditch those “just in case” items you can pick up at your destination later; also pack performance fabrics like merino wool or synthetic materials which breathe and dry more quickly for clothes you can bring onboard.
Traveling light isn’t just beneficial to your wallet – it’s also better for the experience overall. With less to carry, it will be easier to navigate crowded airports and make last-minute plans without having to find somewhere for your luggage. Plus, you’ll spend less time loading and unloading heavy airline carts, saving both your back and feet from extra strain!
Your packing list may differ depending on your personal preferences and climate of destination; as a general guideline, pack one hat, two pairs of shoes, three bottoms (pants or skirt), four tops (long- or short-sleeve or outer layer), five pairs of socks and six underwear sets to last at least two weeks on travel; laundry can then be completed midway. Finally, include any necessary specific items related to itinerary – for instance travel-sized detergent, stain stick or waterproof bag might come in handy on rainy days!
