I’ve made the mistake too many times of over packing for a trip into a big, oversized suitcase. A few years ago Joel and I travel to Amsterdam and around Belgium, and I stubbornly brought a modestly full big suitcase because I thought I’d bring a bunch of souvenirs home. Turns out I’m not as much of a souvenir junkie as I expected and we were stuck lugging around this big half empty suitcase from place-to-place, train-to-train, and it was terrible. Lesson learned. So, now my first goal when packing for any vacation is to pack only in a carry-on – no matter the length! I’m sharing all my weird/awesome/clever carry-on packing hacks I’ve learned over the years in the video above! If you have any other awesome packing hacks please share them with me!
