What’s worse than getting hit with “Excessive Baggage” Fees when you’re trying to make you way to a summer vacation destination all in one piece? One could say getting hit with those fees on the return flight, having no week long vacation nor a delicious pina colada waiting on the other end of the day’s journey, but bringing up the post vacation lull is just plain cruelty!
Being one who has received their fair share of “Excessive Baggage” Fees, I can say that it stings much more when they are in multiples, ie…when you pack for others, like the whole family.
In keeping with the theme of “lean and mean” on the luggage this Summer season, I’ve put together a few Summer Packing Musts for the Whole Family. Check them out and let me know if you’ve come across any packing musts for your family that I might have missed.
Need to get your hands on these goods prior to your departure date? I’ve got you covered!
