My daughter just got home from taking a trip and I wanted to give you a few tricks on how to save on luggage fees.
First of all, you may want to consider purchasing this luggage scale. There’s nothing more frustrating that being at the airport to find that you’ve gone over the 50lb weight limit to be charged an extra $25.00.
The other way to save on luggage fees is to pack lightly and taking your luggage as a carry-on rather than checking it in. For most airlines this will save you $25-$35. But the question I know all you girls are asking, Is how do I pack all of my items in a carry-on.
Ways to do this is to wear “like” colors, put together outfits that you can wear the same shoes with and so on. An example will be black slacks. Black slacks would be perfect to wear to an evening outing, church etc.
Another tip, is to pack vertically! This will save you so much more room. You can also roll your clothing but I personally find that vertically gives me so much more room. Also fill your shoes with your accessories and Sign up for free samples!! This way you can take your favorite brand of lotion, shampoo etc with you and the smaller bottles will be easier to stuff in your shoes and in between items. The best part is they were free, you can take them on the plane with you and you aren’t compromising on the brands you enjoy!
