I've already made this mistake in 2022. I took way too much stuff on a vacation. We all take 'just in case' items on trips which makes suitcases harder to close.
Here's some advice from NY Post:
- Make a list so you don't forget stuff or bring stuff you don't need.
- Roll your clothes instead of folding them. That will save tons of space.
- Be versatile in choosing items from your closet that can be dressy or not dressy.
- Wear the heaviest items so that your suitcase isn't overweight and it's not as hard to pull through the airport.
- Bring a water bottle
So here's to packing better than I did and to hoping that the airline doesn't lose your luggage - which happened to me for the first time EVER!
