I would think that the baggage fees the airlines have imposed this year to improve their bottom lines would help focus the mind regarding how much to take.

Bon voyage!


I know how you feel. I pack at the last minute too and I always over pack, thinking of every scenario in which I might need (fill in the blanks). But unpacking the last few trips has felt so painful that I'm not remembering when I pack, how much I'll have to unpack. Enjoy your trip. Happy Thanksgiving.

Yes those baggage fees probably help everyone feel more motivated to take less. And Kat I've had the same feeling about unpacking which is almost as bad sometimes as packing. Last night I was so tired by the time I finished I have no idea what I took. But I made it safely and that's what counts.
Thanks to both of you for commenting, and Happy Thanksgiving.
