Reader Hack: Use Different Color Suitcases for Each Family Member

colored_bags1.pngI use packing cubes from eBags.com. Same kind of idea as the pack it envelopes.

I have 3 sons, and we go from Boston to Disney World every year. I use a different color packing cube for each kid. Cuts down on unpacking time, too, as I just drop the cubes in the drawer and I’m done.

Once, at the Orlando airport a skycap said our bag was too heavy. He brought me a cardboard box and I opened my suitcase, whipped out a few of the cubes, and my repack was done. He commented it was the fastest he’d ever seen.

Since that event, I’ve bought several smaller suitcases. Airlines really have low weight limits, so for our family it’s better to bring 3-5 small bags than 1-2 larger ones.

Someday if it is just my husband and I maybe I will try the carryon only trick
