Save money on travel by using your carryon. A carryon is simply the smaller luggage piece that can fit in the bin or under the seat.

You can save money and time by using a carryon instead of a larger bag!

(If you are not reading this post at or in your feed reader, it may have been stolen from my site.)

Of course if you really need a lot of items then a carryon may not work for your needs. However if you can fit all your needs into a smaller bag why not do it.


-You don’t have to pay a checked bag fee

-You don’t have to wait at baggage claim

-You don’t have to struggle with a large, bulky suitcase


-You can’t carry as much

Of course the drawback is not really serious. The biggest issue is that you may need to be creative with your outfits. You will need to plan carefully so it does not look like you are just wearing the same thing all the time.
