How to Pack Light and Go Far

Packing light has its advantages like avoiding baggage fees, not having to worry about losing your luggage, and being free when traveling to a new place. The most often asked question is how to pack everything into a single carry-on, even for trips that are longer than a week.

One Bag, That’s It

Start with a carry-on backpack that fits into the overhead compartment. Make sure to check and compare backpack weights and external dimensions when you’re shopping for a new backpack. Choose a backpack that meets your most important needs. If you need a backpack with an in-built USB port, make sure you can live with its downsides like not having a bottle holder.

Think Light

The contents you put in your bag expand to fill the available space, physics 101. You have to make tough decisions in your living-room so you can be free when you travel. Everybody loves a trilogy because three makes you free.

Three pairs of socks, three pairs of underwear, three shirts, two pants and one pair of shorts or skirt should do. Think light and choose materials that are quick-dry like cotton-poly blends, with matching colors and low wrinkles. Most places have hotel laundry and local cleaners to wash your clothes.


Using daily beauty products like creams, lotions, and hand sanitizer are very important for health. Forgetting your health and beauty essentials can result in undesirable situations like a sunburn. The usual travel containers spill and are bad for the environment. Leftover toiletry containers in hotels around the world make their way to waste landfills by the billions every year.
