OK, OK, I get it! It seems impossible to pack for a trip in just one bag. I found this article that has several ideas to help you “consolidate” and, perhaps, help you have at least one less bag to lug around.
Back in the day, checking your bag on a trip only cost you 20 minutes of your time after a flight. Now you’re lucky if it only costs you $20. With rampant theft, high bag check costs, and overhead bins filled to the brim, learning how to pack efficiently matters more than ever. With the right strategy, you can fit everything you actually need into the seat in front of you.
I hate checking bags. I really hate checking bags. I’ve had luggage lost, items stolen, property destroyed, and a myriad of other issues. After an incredibly degrading experience with checked luggage, I decided to approach every future flight as a challenge. I tested new ways to ensure I get my bags on the plane and, more recently, that they can fit underneath the seat in front of me if necessary. After four years of practice, I can pack for a two week week trip and fit everything into a tiny space. In this post, we’ll look at how.
Try it, and don’t forget to comment on the article.
