Unique Ways to Make Your Carry On Lighter

Readers Digest says 57.4 percent of travelers are packing lighter and 56.5% plan to check fewer bags. Here is their article.

Empty Your Wallet of store credit cards

Dump coins. 

Take specific pages from travel guides. You can place them back in the book later.

Borrow on line from your library.

Scan and save as images heavy trip documents. These should be carried on, so lighten the papers and binders. 

Don’t fill to the brim. If you have to fill a carry on so that items don’t move around, use bubble wrap for spaces. 

Lay your clothes out on the bed first, put aside  what you would need if luggage is delayed. Only carry these emergency items. Statistics that luggage will be delayed are very low. 

Treat Yourself to a lightweight carry on bag. Then use some discipline.
