This is the second in a series of three blogs/videos about traveling light. Never checking luggage again involved making three major decisions. The first decision is what bag/suitcase will I use as my carry-on bag? The second decision is what to put in that bag. The third decision is how to pack that bag.
Our first blog/video in the travel light series covered some of the options for the first decision: What bag will I take as my carry-on? This post deals with the second decision: What will I pack in my carry-on. I have made a video that covers some of my thought process when it comes to deciding what to pack. I use the example of a two week trip that my husband and I took last summer to illustrate my packing list choices. A complete packing list can be found at the end of this post.
