  • Yup. I have a serious problem with overpacking....:)
  • No. One bag. One carry on.
  • I'm amazing, unless I go for more than 4 days. Then it's a catastrophic failure. I wind up taking too many pants, but not enough shirts - or vice versa.
  • Yes, way to much, we don't use half of what I pack. With airlines charging now, I'll rethink my packing big time.
  • If or when I travel, I'll ship my clothes ahead of me by fedx or something. So, it'll just be me with no baggage and no hassle.
  • My marry poppins bag is quite quintessential =)
  • I am a super light packer, comes from my backpacker days. I like to have one bag, hopefully for the two of us. If not, then maybe a second bag and something in a suitbag. If you bring more clothes, you have to take care of more and clean and fold and blah blah blah. I want to enjoy my trip, not do housework or packmule. And I hate carrying dirty clothes. Rinse and wear is my motto.
  • I prefer to take fewer baggage; I find it detrimental to the vacation if I take a whole lot.
  • I'm a one-bag packer. I packed for two weeks on the road in one suitcase, then left said suitcase in Texas. Didn't discover it until 1200 miles and 19 hours later in Sedona AZ. Fortunately they were able to overnight it to me, because all I had was the clothes I was wearing!!
  • It depends on the length of my trip. The last few trips I took, I only took one or two bags, no carry-ons.
  • I travel a lot...so I've mastered the art of packing light ;-)
  • just enough. I have gotten REALLY good at packing light.
  • Usually I do. Domestically, I take too much. Internationally I find myself not taking enough. :-(
  • Nah, usually I travel light.
  • I take enough to get by.
  • Oh Yes! i am a material girl, i cant leave home without my conforts
  • If I'm flying I either take only what I can fit in a carry on or I have a big suitcase that I use when I check my luggage. If I'm driving I tend to take alot of stuff.
  • I travel as light as possible. If I can do laundry where I'm going, then I pack very lightly.
  • If traveling by car, yes. I just don't worry about it and throw in more things into the car. If by plane, it depends on the length of the trip and the different climates I'll be in (e.g. going to LA and San Francisco on the same trip for most of the year requires different clothes for each)
  • Only two back packs. One for the wife and one for me. Those packs hold a tremendous amount of everything.
  • No, I take as little as I can get away with.
  • Yes i tend to bring over what I should and i nevr wear half of the clothes lol
  • No I am quite conservative.
  • If I go somewhere for a week just one big suitcase and one carry on.
  • One suitcase and a small backpack.
  • Just one backpack. Usually. I buy a few clothes at my destination.
  • One suitcase and my laptop bag.
  • Almost enough, when it's not too much.
  • One huge red suitcase.
  • I flew to Maine three years ago. I took a giant zip up on wheels that I found in a dumpster. Airport security waved their chemical wands through it. I thought I might be in deep doo doo because I didnt know the history of that piece of luggage. I passed. I also take a small carry on that contains a change of underwear and minimal bathroom necessities incase I get separated from my luggage. Plus camera and cell and things I cant afford to lose.
  • One small suitcase and my Caboodles. I am a very light packer.
  • Too much.
  • I NORMALLY SEND ALL MY LUGGAGE TO MY DESTINATION BY UPS, SO I'LL KNOW IT ALL GETS THERE. AS FOR FLYING, ITS BETTER WITHOUT THE LUGGAGE PROBLEM.
  • Did you see the stuff on the news in America about the stealing of luggage? I am not going to travel because of this. PHOENIX - Locked safes, medical equipment and clothing piled from floor to ceiling were among the hoards of personal belongings sorted by police on Thursday after a couple was arrested on charges they stole luggage at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. Clothing from nearly 1,000 stolen bags took up entire rooms at the couple's home in Waddell, where police served a search warrant Tuesday. Police also uncovered about 25 guns at the residence, although it was unclear if the weapons were stolen from the luggage, said Sgt. Giogi Chiampo. Keith King, 61, remained held Thursday in a Maricopa County jail on a $25,000 bond. His wife, Stacy Lynne Legg-King, 38, posted bond and was released from jail, according to police etc.
  • My pockets are filled, keithold! ;-)
  • Never more than one bag.
  • It depends on the kind of holiday you are taking.If once you reach your destination you are staying put you can take more luggage than if you are going to be on the move constantly. You have to allow for weight if you are flying ...20 kgs is not a lot.In USA you have more weight allowance but if you are going outside of the US and flying, you won't be able to take the extra weight so need to go with the smallest allowable weight. Carrying luggage around can be difficult,frustrating and spoil a holiday.If you are getting on and off public transport you need to pack as little and as light as you can. Sometimes a backpack is better than a suitcase with wheels.Research your destination.If you were travelling to a country like New Zealand you may well be using a campervan or backpacking......little room for hard luggage, or lots of clothing. I was very happy to take a back pack to Cambodia as it would have been a nightmare using a suitcase travelling in a small tour van, rough streets, with impossible traffic etc. But on a recent trip to Japan and Jeju Island, South Korea we decided to take wheeled suitcases as we were using trains, flying and rental car.We did have to compromise on size as we only had a small rental car and packed accordingly. Next time I will take even less!It was still difficult up steps. Try and suss out the airports too. Some have huge distances to walk these days and not all have trolleys you can use, once you have gone through immigration. Planning carefully with light weight, easy wash,quick dry clothing is best.Take layers to cover all climates........ and you don't need as much as may think. You may want to allow for shopping purchases coming home too, so go with some spare weight and space if you plan to shop. Remember that liquids have to be in your luggage...not carry on...... which can also add to the weight. I hope this helps.
  • Hate luggage, i send I send it ahead
  • No, unless I can decide what I will wear.
  • No. My wife and I each take one hard, carry on size suitcase and a second carry-on like a back pack. We have done several 3 week trips to Europe that way. ALL our clothes are "quick dry". We take about 5 sets of clothes and usually wear stuff twice (2 days). Several pieces get washed out in hotel rooms every 3 to 5 days. Those big suitcases are very difficult to get around not to mention the airline fees. Travel in the US is easier because most hotels have coin operated laundry. One other trick: travel when and where it is warm, jackets and warm clothes are "space killers".
