and Traveling Lite

How-to Pack and Travel Lite
In this day and age of traveling cephalalgia, there are a
few packing tactics to employ. To cut out an extra thirty
to forty minutes at the arriving airport, start with packing
small luggage. Since carry-ons can not exceed a linear dimension
of 45 inches, you can escape the fiasco of the baggage terminal
by simply packing and traveling light. To learn how to pack
all your needs into one suitcase, read more.
Use the following pithy packing tips to make your travel light:
Make a list. Compose a pack list. Be sure to coordinate shirts
and blouses with bottoms. To maximize your traveling wardrobe
fashion savoir faire, stick with solids and versatile basics.
Rule-out any clothes that do not match other items.
Roll em up please. The best way to fit all your clothes
is by rolling pants and shirts. First fold each item in half.
Then simply roll. To try to maintain any creases, start on
the bulkiest end of the article of clothing.
Gear up. How to make an awe-inspiring impression out of a
basic or mundane outfit? For the most glam appeal, accessorize
with a vibrant tie (for him) or a florid scarf (for her).
Multihued accessories can liven up just about any attire.
Minimize bulk. After you check for space, edit outfits
ruthlessly. Try to pack microfibers with wrinkle and stain
free comfort. With most of your attire, stay in the same color
scheme in case you have to layer up for warmth.
Employ shoe smarts. For men, any leather rubber-soled shoes
can make the day and night transition, easy. For woman, a
pair of flip-flops, strappy sandals and comfy wedges can serve
all casual chic dressing needs.
Put under garments on the top. To reduce the embarrassment
of under garments becoming the side show attraction of the
open luggage scan, place all panties in a plastic bag free
of any clippers, lighters or other questionable paraphernalia.
For expedient security review, place the transparent bag on
top of your other items so security can access the bag without
ruining your efficient packing method.
Lose Extra Baggage. Leave the heavy travel guide at home.
Duplicate important resources to keep your luggage free of
extra pounds. Since most hotels and resorts provide irons
and blow-dryers --leave yours at home for light travel.
Leave restricted items at home. If you want to make it through
security extra fast, avoid any firearms, weapons, box-cutters,
scissors, razors, lighters and any other item that may be
used in a terrorist situation.
