It’s the ultimate compromise; cheap tickets and two nights at the beach for an exotic weekend away in return for the limitation of only bringing your carry on. Usually, this proposal is enough to turn people off the idea of the cheap holiday. If you’re sick of missing out because you can’t pack everything you need into a carry-on, we’re here to help.
The first place to start is with the dimensions of your carry on. When a sale becomes available, look at the baggage allowance carefully to find the dimensions of your carryon bag. You will be surprised at just how large and heavy the bag can be. Once you’ve found it, scour yours and your friend’s closets for one that fits.
Once you have found the bag, head to your local $1 store and buy small clear squirt bottles. These little bottles are perfect for packing your toiletries into. Instead of taking a whole bottle of moisturizer, just take as much as you expect you will need.
Speaking of what you will need, give the hotel a call to find out what is included in the bathroom. Often items like shampoo, conditioner, body soap/wash, and many others are provided. If they tell you it’s in the room, leave it at home.
You don’t need a lot of choices. When you are going away on a weekend vacation, just take some sensible clothes. Start with basics range from the Groupon Coupons page for J Crew for clothes which can cover a range of scenarios. Too many people think ‘what if I need a smart jacket, what if I need pumps, what if…’. Plan simple, and if the need comes up and you can’t go to dinner because you don’t have a jacket, you can easily go somewhere else.
Did you forget your personal item? That’s right! In addition to a carry-on bag, your flight will likely also allow you to take a ‘personal item’ onboard with you. This can be a small backpack or a handbag. These items are best packed with your electronics and bulky items to make it easier to check while you go through the security screening process.
