Checking a bag today can cost 25$ per bag per flight, add an interisland flight to that and we will be paying 100$ to bring one checked bag with us! Before these charges were put into place, I would bring one checked bag and Martin would bring one checked bag. Now, we are consolidating and saving, and we'll be squishing our clothes, shoes etc into one checked bag, with carry on's. We're going on vacation for a week and that means clothes for the beach, dressy clothes for going out, workout clothes for hiking, and lounge clothes for walking around...which also means, flip flops, heels and a pair of sneakers for the hike! (minus the heels for Martin lol). I figured out a way to fit all this into one bag...and two carry on's:) Rolling clothes! Every shirt, bathing suit, shorts, dress will be rolled and everything actually fit! With some room to spare! (barely any...but at least the suitcase isn't busting out at the seems lol). Here is how our suitcase came out- not too bad right? We just might need an iron when we get there!
