Step 1: Create a packing list Create a packing list that includes only the items that are absolutely necessary for your trip -- and stick to it. Tip A packing list will help you to stay focused. Most people use only about half of what they pack, so edit, edit, edit. Step 2: Choose a carry on Choose a carry on bag that has a rectangular shape to maximize interior space. All carry on luggage should measure less than 45 inches when the length, width, and height are combined. Step 3: Buy miniatures Purchase miniature toiletries or fill small bottles with shampoo, conditioner, soap, or lotion and place them in sealable plastic bags. Step 4: Choose multi-function clothes Choose multi-function clothing items that can be worn more than once. If you are traveling in a cool climate, choose a sweater or jacket that can be worn with multiple tops or bottoms. Tip If you are going to be away for a long period, you may want to pack laundry detergent to keep the clothing you pack to a minimum. Step 5: Roll your clothes Roll your clothes instead of folding. This will maximize your space and keep you from having to iron later on. Step 6: Be a one-bag packer Be a smart, one-bag packer. This will set you apart from the poor souls that paid extra and still have to wait at baggage claim after a long day of travel. Did You Know? Did you know? The Unclaimed Baggage center in Scottsboro, Alabama, has been selling unclaimed baggage items since 1970.
