10 strategies for packing light
from The Boston Globe
Diane Bair and Pamela Wright write, "'Pack light' is our mantra, and here's why: You lose the independence of hopping onto a different flight if you've checked a bag through. You look like a tourist (and an attractive target to pickpockets) if you're loaded down with bags. You lose valuable time waiting for the luggage to arrive on the carousel. And it will cost you money. Last year, the airlines collected $3.5 billion in baggage fees. Not to mention, airlines lose bags, temporarily in most cases, but it's still a huge inconvenience."
