We recently took our little family on a trip to the Gold Coast for my younger brothers wedding.
"Packing for a holiday can be daunting enough without the drama of oversize baggage fees."
I am yet to take a flight where I haven't seen someone having to shell out for excess baggage. Our companions on this fair got stung an extra $50.
We only had one checked baggage allocation plus carry-on and with two littlies to manage as well, I didn't want to be carting more than necessary.
So how do you pack light, while still looking stylish for your trip.
The secret is to:
Select outfits including accessories for each person, each day, and take photographs so you dont forget;
Stick to a few basic colours so that your accessories, hats, shoes and jackets work for several outfits;
Another great tip is to plan outfits that can be:
We only packed one pair of shoes and one hat each for both kids, so all of their outfits needed to work with them.
A little extra planning before your trip makes dressing everyone each morning a breeze, and ensures you know what extras to put in your bag for the day and evening out.
