Packing Efficiently For Light Travel

If you need to save time and money on your travels, pack only the necessary items. Read this article before you start packing.

If you are going to take the plane, pack a carry-on bag. Airlines have different policies regarding the weight and size of carry-on items; make sure you give them a call or look up this information on their website before you pack. In most cases, carry-on bags are free but you could be charged for every bag you check. Some airlines allow you to have a carry-on item as well as a laptop or a small handbag. Measure your bag carefully and weigh it before leaving for the airport and do not hesitate to buy a small bag or briefcase if you need to: it will still be cheaper than to have your bag checked in some cases.

Do not bring more items than you will need. You should plan your outfits ahead of time and restrain from bringing any additional items. Find out if you will be able to do laundry while you are on vacation. Bring a bar of soap to hand-wash a few items if necessary. Avoid bringing too many accessories and remember that you are on vacation to relax and have a good time, not to impress anyone. You should also plan your activities ahead of time and pack items you know will be needed.

For instance, take a good pair of boots if you want to go hiking. Check the weather before you leave so you know what kind of clothes will be appropriate.
