The Carry-On Queen

How to pack lighter & smarter

I consider myself a carry-on queen. I use a two-piece luggage combo consisting of a hard-shell 20-inch carry-on and a 14-inch mini cosmetic case. When I pack, I use one side of my luggage for shoes and pajamas. I use the enclosed other side for my clothes. In my mini cosmetic bag, I keep all my necessities, such as toiletries, wallet/passport, headphones, hair products, sunglasses, a pen, and a small notepad. Depending on the occasion, I may add additional items as needed, such as books, makeup, and so on.

Here are some tips for packing a carry-on:

  • Only pack the essentials.
  • Choose versatile clothing that can be mixed and matched to create multiple outfits.
  • Roll your clothes instead of folding them to save space.
  • Use packing cubes to keep your belongings organized.
  • Pack a small cosmetic bag with your toiletries.
  • Bring a change of clothes in your carry-on in case your luggage is lost.
  • Wear your heaviest shoes while traveling to save space in your bag.
  • Be sure to bring your passport and any other necessary documentation.

By following these tips, you can easily pack a carry-on for any trip.
