I have a BUNCH of trips to prepare for this summer, and fall -- and have been dreading the idea of paying for checked-in luggage.
Well, maybe I won't have to.
Take a look at this New York Times tutorial. Forty garments in one carry-on bag, plus three pairs of shoes and toiletries...now that's my kind of math! (Other good packing tips are here. Mostly from pilots and stewardesses, who do this sort of thing all the time.)
Two weeks now, until Daughters and I go to New York City for 9 days. I already told them I'm not paying for checked luggage...I hope they're listening.
