To dream the impossible dream

It's not pretty, but the carry-on is packed - minus one pair of jeans, my laptop and makeup bag. I haven't been this proud of myself since I figured out how to program the VCR.

Fantastic, BG! My bag is open and laying on my bed right now, too. One more tip. I premeasure out whatever prescription meds I might need to take while in flight. I put these in a separate little pill bottle. That way I don't have to take out every bottle to get just one. Also, eliminates the risk of spilling them. No charge!

Excellent suggestion. Thanks! Have a safe and memorable trip. Talk to you on the rebound....

WOW! Way to go, Cathy! Have a fabulous trip...

Bummer, peeps! The bag is 10 pounds overweight by Lufthansa's standards. Regrouping!!!!

Regrouping is easy... delete some extra's from hubby's bag and take up the newly found space :)

Enjoy your trip and bring us back some recipies.

Are all those makeup bottles sub 4-ounces or whatever the weight limit is on that. They look big in the pix. Since I don't fly, internationally or domestically, I don't know what the weight limit is. Good luck on paring down. Have a great trip.

It looks like you have your travel size liquid bottles in 2 baggies. TSA can be very picky about the one baggie thing.

I like the idea laurie had of getting rid of things in hubbies bag and using that space! Too funny!

Cathy Hamilton said...

The bottles are less than 4 oz but I do have two baggies. I'll go to the store and get the biggest ones I can find. Thanks, everyone, for the help. God knows I need it.

You're a genius!

Cathy Hamilton said...

OK, I can't buy the biggest one I can find, but it's amazing how much you can cram into a one-quart bag. Thanks, Ann, for the catch. Had to let go of the hairspray, anti-bacterial gel and body lotion but I did it without crying.

Glad I could help! They can be weird about the one baggy thing.
I once saw a guy have only ONE 3 oz bottle and they took it away because it wasn't in the quart baggy!
