Hate lugging behind all that heavy luggage when traveling? Most people pack entirely too much when traveling. People vow to never pack that much again, yet year after year they find themselves struggling with heavy burdensome baggage.

Get travel sized toiletries or better yet purchase containers made for travel and fill them with favorite toilet items to save money. If interested in learning how to travel light and still have plenty to wear, United Reservation Services is pleased to present a few tips on what to include, what to leave out and how to make trips easier than ever this year.
Only pack 2 pairs of shoes. Wear the bulkiest heaviest pair and pack the other. Pack a carryon bag which will allow travelers to pack your other items in a smaller, lighter suitcase.
Pack items in plastic bags making sure to remove excess air. 2-gallon zip lock bags are great for this and can greatly reduce the volume of the items travlers are packing often times allowing them to use carryon luggage for shorter trips and smaller suitcases for longer trips.
Plan on doing laundry while on vacation. Most travel destinations offer laundry services. Pack one pair of pants (or skirt) for every 2 days of travel, one shirt per day, 2 formal or evening wear items and pack about half the undergarments needed. By planning on doing laundry once per week, travelers will have less luggage, more room for other items and will not feel inconvenienced in any way.
Take the time to organize things on the bed before packing everything into the suitcases. This way travlers can avoid packing too many of one particular item by mistake.
Wear your heaviest pair of shoes and if traveling in winter time be sure to wear multiple layers using the heaviest and bulkiest items travelers are bringing on their trip.
When selecting clothing items pick colors that easily mix and match so travelers can pack fewer items and less accessories.
