Baggage fees are a traveler’s worst enemy, but sometimes they seem unavoidable. We thought this, too, until we learned to ask ourselves these two simple questions. Whenever you are packing, go through this process, and we promise - you will never over pack again!
Can you buy it there? If the answer is yes, leave it. This is especially true for those items you aren’t sure if you *might* need them, such as bug spray, band aids, umbrellas and aspirin. If it something that can quickly be picked up at a pharmacy or general store and you aren’t positive you need it - leave it!
Will you miss it if it gets stolen? That favorite necklace that was your grandmothers? Yeah, we love it too, but if it gets taken, you will be wrecked! So, avoid the situation and leave it at home! Any item that is absolutely irreplaceable is better to be left at home.
