Here are some tips for packing light:

  • Roll your clothes instead of folding them. This will save space in your suitcase.
  • Wear your heaviest shoes and clothes on the plane. This will reduce the weight of your carry-on luggage.
  • Bring a personal item, such as a backpack or purse, in addition to your carry-on luggage. This will give you extra space to pack your essentials.
  • Leave non-essential items at home. If you are unsure whether you will need an item, it is probably best to leave it at home.

By following these tips, you can pack light and avoid overpaying for baggage fees.
