Are you travelling to somewhere soon on a budget airline? Then, you will know about the 7KG carry-on luggage limit!
It may seem daunting to some to stuff everything they need for a holiday in a small cabin luggage without exceeding the weight limit but there are some simple hacks you can utilise to keep your luggage light enough with additional space for some souvenirs!
Read on to find out more!
#1 Plan your clothes wisely
If you are taking a budget flight, chances are you will be going somewhere that does not require thick, heavy coats and won't be there for a long time. Pack dresses or jumpsuits as they take up less space and choose clothes that do not wrinkle easily. Keep your number of outfits to the number of days you will be spending overseas and remember, you can always re-wear those pair of jeans for another day!
#2 Roll your clothes
With only 7KG of baggage available, you definitely need to Konmari everything! Roll your clothes and make use of packing cubes to keep everything compact.
Here's how you can pack everything in:
#3 Only bring essentials!
Do you really need that pair of sandals and that pair of slippers on a 4D3N trip? Learn how to let go of things that you don't need and pack in stuff that you will need! For example, choose footwear that is comfortable and easy to match with many outfits such as white sneakers and leave those heels at home!
#4 Pack your items in order
Packing your luggage in the correct order is an art you have to master if you travel frequently. The general rule of thumb is to start heavy and pile up the lighter stuff. Put the heaviest and bulkiest items near the wheels such as shoes or jeans. Then, placed in your rolled clothes in and leave the top layer for light but big stuff such as umbrellas or hats. Stuff all the small random items like medicine box and socks in the nooks and crannies last!
