8 Ways to Keep Luggage Light When Traveling

Toiletry Organization:  Store toiletry items in small containers for easy access, ensuring they are always full and ready to go to save space and pack light.

Medicinal Preparedness: Include a day-to-day container for medicines and three extra days' worth to cover delays or extensions of your trip.

Carry-On Essentials:  Pack important items like makeup, extra clothes, and medications in your carry-on in case your luggage is lost.

Mix-and-Match Outfits:  Choose outfits and accessories that can be mixed and matched, focusing on versatile colors like black, white, and navy blue, along with travel-friendly knits.

Minimalist Footwear:  Select one or two pairs of shoes that can be worn with multiple outfits to reduce weight and space in your luggage.

Outfit Packing:  Pack each day's outfit with accessories in a 2.5-gallon plastic, Ziplock bag, removing air by sitting on it to save space and reduce wrinkles.

Luggage Identification:  Use colorful tags or scarves to easily identify your luggage and avoid mix-ups.

Organized Return:  Sort dirty clothes by color and pack them in plastic bags for easy washing upon return home.
