8-Tips for Packing 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 ?C ruthlessly. Try to pack microfibers with wrinkle and stain free comfort.
With most of your attire, stay in the same color scheme ?C 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 ?C 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.

A few tips for better posting.
Do not post in rtf/html format. Many news clients can not decipher the
code. Makes for hard reading.

Learn to press the "enter" key a few times in a long line.

Learn to use "word wrap" more efficiently.

Your post shows 178 lines while it only contained about 20 lines of
text. Very bad netiquette.


Maybe you need a bigger monitor. His post displays perfectly on my 1680 x 1050 monitor. The wrap is flawless at the screen's width.
No screen width is wasted. Yours is truncated with the lines breaking midway. Kind of stupid to only use half your monitor's
width. And for people that say its hard to read a long line? Wake up to this age of widescreen monitors. Learn to read properly.
Half empty screen widths are wasted screen widths. People need to get away from the utterly brainless default posting width of 72
characters. Hello - we've moved up from 14" CRT monitors!

So get your netiquette together and drag your sorry ass into the 21st century. HAR HAR. Can't stand usenet "traditionalists" that
live in the past. Wake up.

Hi,

The best clothes for a trip are lightweight travel pants, made of soft nylon derivatives are very light, tough, and pack small. Don't pack important documents, like passports and identification, in your luggage. Carry these on your person, preferably in a security pouch or interior pocket.

These are really great tips. I always find that I pack too much uneccessary stuff and it ends up taking up so much space. I didn't realize that rolling your clothes is better- I always assumed that folding them flat would be the best way to minimize space. I will keep these tips in mind next time I travel!
