We just returned from a weekend trip late last night and this was our very first time using carry-on bags ONLY.All these years we have checked our baggage and now some airlines are charging 25.00 to check a bag. That would add 100.00 to the cost of our round trip so we decided to carry on our bags. They were of course the size that will fit in the overhead bin.

The TSA has rules in place for carrying liquids and gels on board. They must be in a zip top bag amd be 3.oz or less. Here is how they define what goes in the bag.

So as I said this was the first time I had to carry-on the liquids etc.Here are photos of the bags. One for me and one for my husband. I have more in my bag because it takes more to make me look good.. Very Happy

It doesn't make any difference how many items you put in the bag, it just has to be 3 oz. or less and that should take you through a week, maybe more.

Because of the charge for checked baggage, more people are taking advantage of the carry-on. Now, the airlines have to have so much weight in the bottom of the plane coompared to the weight inside the cabin so they are asking people to bring their bags to the agent and they will check them for FREE to balance the weight.Also, too many bags and too many large bags are brought onboard now. So, if your friend paid 25.00 to check a bag and you are carrying yours on, you can get it checked for free at the gate.

Also you may want to bring something to eat if you are flying for 3-4 hours. We were on American and nothing is provided except a beverage. You may bring food onboard but it has to be sealed..in a container etc.

Hope this is of some help to those travelling soon.

Went to Ohio this past weeknd. Carried all my stuff in a 20"X20" tote. Guys don't care if our clothes are wrinkled.

My clothes don't get wrinkled. I roll them instead of folding in squares. Sometimes I use a cleaners plastic bag to roll my fancy dancy party clothes.
