Suggestions needed for luggage and packing for our trip. This is the first time we are flying, and I am not sure of all the new rules on what to pack and not pack. All suggestions and hints or tips are welcomed!!

First, I pack lite! I pack for 1/2 a trip. So if we are going for 8 days I pack clothes for four plus a couple extra tops. If you are taking full size luggage and checking it in to go under plane, can pretty much take anything, full size shampoos and such. If you are taking carry ins there stil is a oz limit(3) and your liquids and lotions have to fit in a quart size baggie and it has to be pulled from luggage at security check point. - mmddgp  1283.4 #5 9:31AM
You can always go to www.tsa.gov for more info - firestorm64rt  43.0 #119 10:49PM
Get a luggage scale from tj maxx or marshalls. We use space bags. Keep your bags at 6 lbs less than the max weight. We pack as much of our clothing in space bags and keep them in our carryons. They dont weigh the carry ons... use TSA locks only. And dont forget to pack a dryer sheet in each bag. Keeps things smelling fresh! - amajam  20.8 #172 9:25AM
On our carry on we pack cameras, 1 day of clothes and anything valuable. Wendy packs all essentials in a clear carrying bag with all clothes in the suitcase. We put locks on them. The locks we have TSA has a key. You can buy them almost anywhere. You can always go to the airline you are taking and get info. Remember checked baggage you don't have to go by 3 ounces. Hope this helps - tomevans13  251.9 #39 9:35AM
If you stay more then one week, just pack one week worth of clothes...I usually pack one to 1 1/2 week of clothes, then wash laundry when needed...if you or your other half is military you get two bags free up to 75 pounds... - islandgirl58  479.6 #19 10:20AM
I'm not sure what kind of phone you have but I know iPhone has a tsa app. So if your not sure about if you can bring something you type it in and it will tell you the rules. - Schramke  709.7 #13 10:51AM
Well what we normally do. Checked bags, clothes are packed into those bags that compress. Darn it, I am drawing a blank on the name all of a sudden. Just one extra pair of shoes. One carry on bag per person, that is always empty when we leave home. In our backpacks, camera, phone, charger, iPad, and he takes his DS. - Lelundrial  784.1 #260 11:00AM
Can you bring a backpack and a carryon or are they both considered carryons? - ncjal  321.0 #28 11:56AM
One carry on plus one "personal item" like a purse if briefcase. You can probably get away with a small backpack that will fit under the seat. If you have too much, they will check items for you at the gate. If its a full flight, you may get to check at the gate free if charge to make room for others! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1457.0 #3 1:53PM
So after the airlines list our luggage we do not check bags any more. We each bring a 21" carryon suitcase. My kids are 9 and 12. The can pull it themselves but hubby tends to take my 9 year olds for convenience. We also each bring a backpack. My kids used to have little one but now we just use regular full size ones for them. My hubby uses the roll method for the clothes and it fits a lot more that way. Everyone wears sneakers and has an extra pair and a pair of sandals for pool use. We all usually have shirts that we wear twice each. Toiletries are all 3oz size and mostly mine, lol. We have them in 4 quart size baggies and all in one backpack. They have to be removed at security but as long as there are 4 people and 4 bags they don't care. We used to each carry one but hubby realized it didn't matter where they were before and after security only that they were removed for security. We have never been over weight. That us really hard to do with a carry on suitcase. If you need to you can get on a human bathroom scale and hold the suitcase and see what it weighs. - mzdisnee  569.4 #15 8:28PM
