How to pack an Under Seat Bag to Avoid Baggage Fees

November 9, 2018 in Family and Travel

Y’all,  I just got back from a 10 day trip using a rolling under the seat bag.  A little background, I usually fly budget airlines like Frontier because, duh!  “That Simple Life”.  The prices help me stay out of debt and I get to travel and see things.  The only problem is that you have to pay hefty prices for bags.  So how do I avoid that?  Well I travel with only an under the seat bag.  This takes some crafty planning and rolling of your items, but it can totally be done.  Here is what I brought on this 10 day adventure to Colorado and California.  This trip included 3 formal events as well so I had to be strategic.

2 dresses
2 pairs of jeans (1 I wore on the plane)
2 t shirts
2 blouses
2 cardigans( 1 I wore on the plane)
A pair of heels
2 pairs of flats
Sneakers (worn on the plane)
Toiletries/ makeup
A brush and curling iron
My wallet and phone
My laptop
Not bad huh?  Check out the video below if you want to see how I did it. (I promise you won’t see any chonies).
