If you travel in any capacity you are all too familiar with baggage fees and carry on restrictions. Here are some tips from our professionals
Don't pack toiletries. Buy travel sizes at a Target or Walmart near your destination and toss them before you return. You will avoid the TSA "do you have liquid in your carry on" because you forgot you threw them in there. Plus you remove some weight from your suitcase.
If you plan to shop for clothing, consider wearing the new stuff on your trip.
Sign up for Mileage Memberships for the airlines you are traveling with. Most of them have reduced baggage fees if you are a member.
Get a small hand held scale and don't go over 50 pounds per bag.
Since you're allowed one carry on and one personal item, fill your purse as mush as you want to carry. Just be sure to remove prohibited objects like sharp nail files, pocket knives, tweezers, etc.
Same goes for your carry on. If you can lift it over your head, you're good to go.
Leave room in your back for a jacket, sweater or light blanket. It can get chilly on the airplane.
A snack wouldn't hurt, especially if you are traveling at add times. You could wait a while for meal to be served.
