Packing light

What are your best tips for packing light? I'm tired of paying the baggage fees for all of these airlines and southwest isn't an option for me sad

Thoughts?

I am soooo not the person to answer this question..but I would think packing outfits that can over lap would be a good start like a sweatshirt that goes with everything..two pairs of pants or shorts instead of 8..I have been known to do that.

You could consider an Owner's Locker. I find that an interesting option.

Much easier to pack light in the non-sweltering months. I've been known to reuse an item of clothing now and again, but if you sweat a bunch, that's not happening. We do sometimes use the laundry. It's a chore, but if it lets you leave a suitcase behind it's worth it.

We do laundry in the middle of the trip, just so much easier and the laundry is right by the pool so that's a slow evening activity for us

@Bella: Overlapping is a good word. I'll think "re-use, re-cycle"!

@dsoup: We just don't go often enough to do the Owner's Locker. Plus, I don't know WHAT I'd keep in there! Smile

@Brad: I think you're stuck either way. Sweat in the summer, but you have bulkier stuff in the winter! No matter what -- heavy suitcase!

@JustCar: That's a good idea. It forces a relaxing night, too!

We always drive so packing is not much of an issue. I do always do laundry while we are there though so I still pack very little.

Yeah, that's because we have to make sure we have enough room in the car to bring home everything that "we" buy! muchlove Love you dear!
