Travel, Without the Baggage

Air travel is stressful. While some stress may be unavoidable, like the long lines at security, other sources of stress, like dealing with luggage check-in and baggage claim, can be reduced. If you think checking in luggage for your two-week vacation is inescapable, think again. Here are some ideas to help you get by with just a carry-on and by-pass the hassles (and fees) of checking in luggage.

HOW TO PACK LIGHTLY

There are several simple strategies that may help you survive your next getaway with only carry-on luggage.

START WITH A SMALL BAG

Humans tend to fill up the space allowed them. So, start your packing with a bag that will meet the carry-on criteria.

MIX AND MATCH

Pack clothes that can be mixed and matched so you can wear a variety of outfits with fewer clothes.

BRING THE RIGHT CLOTHES

Ready-to-wear and fast-dry apparel will allow you to more readily re-use clothes.

TWO SHOES MAXIMUM

Shoes take up a lot of room, so consider a one pair for active use and another for the casual nights out.

DON’T BRING WHAT YOU CAN BUY

If you can buy items at your destination (e.g., shampoo and suntan lotion), then don’t take up valuable space with these items.

Finally, consider not just what you pack, but how you pack it. Use space efficiently by rolling your clothes and using your shoes’ foot space for packing smaller items.
