How Heavy is Your Luggage?

S;potted this cute item on Facebook the other day and thought I'd share with you all.  Thanksgiving maybe over....but the sentiment follows us right through the New Year when everyone breaks their resolutions about dieting, lol.

Did you travel for Thanksgiving?  It's the busiest travel time of the year.  We don't as 90+% of the family is here; which means others travel here.

 Do you carry on if you fly?  Do you find it hard to pack light enough you can lift the suitcase easily over your head to overhead compartments?  Will you be traveling for Christmas and or New Years?  Do yourself and the rest of your fellow travelers a favor.  Weigh your suitcase.  Seriously weigh it empty folks you'll be amazed how heavy it is.  These are 2 brand new light weight suitcases that can probably save you about 10 pounds!
10 pounds is huge when you're packing, whether it be for your carry on, or your checked luggage.  These are both Delsey, though from 2 different sets; just happened to be the configuration liked with outside pockets as well as the inside arrangement.  These are considerably lighter than our regular luggage.  We got these for our daughter who travels alot.  Being a book lover, 10 pounds could be several books!

Weigh your luggage, then put new luggage on your Christmas Wish List.  You'll be glad you did, and so will your fellow travelers as the plane will load quicker, the line checking in will move quicker when you don't have to unzip your luggage to find something to move from checked to carry on luggage to meet weight requirements.

Are you cold, and already tired of snow..........scroll back to the last 2 post and think warm, sun,'ll enjoy 2 posts by a guest blogger.

  1. Hi Sandy,
    I finally popped into my blog and saw your concerned comments. I am sorry that I disappeared. My Master's program is the hardest thing I have ever done, but I love it. I make time to post on facebook and that's about it! Hopefully I'll be able to blog again at some point, but right now I just can't fit it in.

    As for travelling - lately I've been finding the best way to transport my massive amounts of books for school back and forth from Fredericton, New Brunswick to Brandon, Manitoba! Talk about weight concerns! So far, I've managed to stay under the maximu:)m, but just barely
