Everyone has packed too many things for a trip, whether long or short, and lived to regret it. There’s nothing quite like having to haul around a heavy bag and realize at the end of the trip you could have packed much lighter. If you plan on flying, packing light can save you time and money as some airlines charge for checked baggage.
1. Ditch the extra weight
If you buy souvenirs and can’t seem to fit everything in your bag, ditch the things you brought with you that you can live without. This is the perfect chance to dump old shirts or even the sample toiletries you brought along.
