Travel Packing Tips

Before going on a trip, you need to pack your bags and prepare. For many people, this can be quite a challenge. Airlines have regulations on how much you can bring; each bag can only weigh so much, and carry-ons cannot be over a certain size that is measured before you board the plane. Even if you are going to drive, you have only so much room in your car. You have to decide what to bring and what to leave behind. These Greenville travel tips can help you choose the right items, and they can also help you bring more along on each trip.

Pack Clothes in Your Carry-On
It is a good idea to have at least one change of clothes in your carry-on bag. This way, if your luggage is delayed and will not show up until the next day, you have clothes to wear at your destination. 

Know the Regulations for Carry-On Bags
It is also good to know the regulations about how many bags you can bring. People often assume they can bring just one, but the truth is that you can bring one bag and one additional small piece of luggage. A good idea is to stuff your actual carry-on with clothes so that it is easy to compact and fit into the overhead compartment, and then bring a messenger bag for your computer, your phone, books, contacts or glasses and everything else that you need. This way, you can get twice as much stuff in before you even start packing your checked bag. 

Pick Out Everything That You Want, then Reduce It
A good way to make sure that you do not pack too much is to pick out anything at all that you would want to bring, even if you know it is too much, and then begin reducing it. You will often notice a lot of repetition - do you really need three sweaters, or could you get by with just one? - whereas packing everything piece by piece can cause you to overlook these repeats and bring things that you do not need. 

Remember What is Most Important
Even if you forget everything else, make sure that you have your wallet and your plane ticket. These are the only two things that will make it impossible to go on your trip if you forget them. Everything else is replaceable and can be bought once you arrive.
