    o.k. so I have written hub on this but for packing to travel light on a motorbike. Best idea I have used is to roll your clothes and then pack the item into airtight bags. Works a treat and saves space!

    Bring only a few things. If you really need something, you can always buy it wherever you are. My husband and I just finished 6 weeks in Spain and Portugal with just our carry-on.

    It's always a good idea to stash a couple plastic grocery bags. Those can really come in handy!

      Ziplock bags are great.

    Pack as much lightweight and dry foot in as many nooks and crannies in your baggage as possible. Take crackers, oatmeal, granola bars, dried fruits, etc. Naturally you can bring fresh fruits, meats or vegetables.

    It's much cheaper to bring food on a trip than buy it at major tourist destinations.

    Take your suitcase out a week before your trip and start placing items you want to take with you (like your swimsuit or beach hat) but don't need before the trip in your suitcase. This makes packing so much quicker and and easier. Also, it prevents you forgetting anything important.

      This makes so much sense. Waiting to pack the day before becomes so stressful and ends up lingering over into packing the day of which; making it even worse.

    Always weigh your baggage before leaving for the airport... It is frustrating to pay for those extra kgs...

      So true. And you don't have to buy a luggage weigher. I simply put mine on my bathroom scale and see how much it comes to. It has never steered me wrong.
