So, last month I experienced my first time packing light when I got to travel to Florida to see my parents. I never packed light before in my life. So, let just say that this was sort of a challenge for me because I often bring my whole life, which includes me always bringing extra pairs of clothes and shoes. I was proud to say that I only brought my small backpack with a few shirts and two pairs of sandals! This time around, I am headed to Atlanta, Georgia for about four days and packing pretty minimal again. If you regularly fly with Spirit Airlines, there is normally no mercy for those who choose to not sign up for their $9 fares and fully aware of the $100 fee to bring a carry on with you on the plane. I am one of them. I refuse. One of the reasons, that I do I like about Spirit is their cheaper airfare. So, I have to sacrifice and settle in bringing one personal bag with me to save money. Here are a couple of things that I do when it comes to packing minimal for a short trip, when flying with Spirit Airlines.
I roll my undergarments into my shoes and doing this helps by giving me more space to work with when I add my clothing on top.
Then after, I place it first in my bag.
When my clothes are rolled and placed nicely into my bag, I add my toiletries and makeup right after. These two small bags came from old subscriptions that I use to get from Essence Magazine.
They fit perfectly up top.
Who would of thought that a bag that my mother gave me as a gift from Dillard’s, would be super useful for my short trips out of town! I’ll enjoy taking this bag along with me whenever I choose to fly with Spirit Airlines.
