  • Alisa Nicole
    Alisa Nicole 1 месяц назад My rule for a checked bag is whatever is in there, you have to be ok with never seeing it again. If you love love love a certain item, then pack it in your carry on. Pretend you’ll never see your checked bag again. And that’s the things that go in the checked bag. We shouldn’t have to do this, airlines should be more responsible but, whatever....you can’t have everything. Love the reenactments, so funny.
  • Kelly Hills
    Kelly Hills 2 дня назад So hard tho when you're traveling for weeks, both business and pleasure.
  • 765respect
    765respect Неделю назад @Stephanie Sanchez I check the largest suitcase I can, packed with a very small suitcase with the absolute bare necessities. Around that small suitcase is bubble wrap. Cause I'm bringing home mementos. If I forgot or need something, I'm buying it on the local market. Also if I really like something, I'm buying it then and there bc I will never go back. Too many places in the world to investigate, so no repeat returns.
  • Stephanie Sanchez
    Stephanie Sanchez Неделю назад My souvenirs! I'm only bringing a big suitcase for that reason!!
  • Pr1vate Citiz3n
    Pr1vate Citiz3n 1 месяц назад that’s how I feel too. If you’re saying goodbye to it at check-in you may never see it again
  • Purple Ash
    Purple Ash 1 месяц назад Which is exactly why I take carry on only. Also packing cubes are a must, such a lifesaver.
  • T S
    T S 1 месяц назад (изменено) Alisa Nicole that’s my rule too! And my daughters name is Alyssia Nicole, so I had to look twice lol

  • Becca Irene
    Becca Irene 1 месяц назад Alisa Nicole Yes, yes, yes!! 100% agree. And haha thank you 😂
  • Jeff P
    Jeff P 2 месяца назад I've always thought baggage handling should be added to the Olympics. "There's Joe from United with the 10'8" 50lb Samsonite toss for the world record and gold medal!"
  • Laura Valancy
    Laura Valancy 4 недели назад gj lui 😳😳😳😳😳😳😳
  • Numa.K
    Numa.K 1 месяц назад 🤣🤣🤣🤣 ... or the tiny little lady trying to move my 70 lbs. bag from the scale to the bagge belt behind her 😩.
  • Becca Irene
    Becca Irene 1 месяц назад 100% they are some of the hardest workers out there! This was moreso just a tip for people to protect their personal items, no shade to the baggage handlers! I got to work with them a lot as a flight attendant and they were the coolest dudes 👍🏼
  • gj lui
    gj lui 1 месяц назад Jeff P I’m not trying to defend the bag handlers, but since they have very limited time between flights(usually about 45 minutes)to unload the bags and then get the next set of bags on the flight they have to hurry and “throw” the bag around to get them on and off the plane. Also those same bag handlers are usually the people who guide the plane into the arrival gate, go on the plane and clean it, and prepare it for the people getting on the plane to leave, and also guide and push the plane out of the gate. They have a lot to do and not a lot of time to do it in.
  • S E
    S E 2 месяца назад Lol. Priceless
  • Becca Irene
    Becca Irene 2 месяца назад Jeff P 😂😂👌🏼
  • Madeline Maureen
    Madeline Maureen 1 месяц назад the only thing I would add is to wrap your shoes in a bag of some sort. Worn shoes next to clean clothes isn't going to keep the clothes clean.
  • 765respect
    765respect Неделю назад Plastic disposable shopping bags, preferably from the place you are visiting.
  • Charlotte Gabutan
    Charlotte Gabutan Неделю назад Madeline Maureen Shoes and slippers should wrap with something
  • J. Spot
    J. Spot Неделю назад Ziploc gallon bags are perfect for me. Worn shoes mixed with clean clothes is simply GROSS! She probably doesn't mind since she laid clean clothes on the floor anyway. Equally, suitcases on the bed... yuck.
  • J. Ho
    J. Ho 3 недели назад I thought that too, 😯😯
  • Idea Baker
    Idea Baker 1 месяц назад Madeline Maureen Agreed. A shower cap is great for covering the soles of shoes if a proper shoe bag is too much of a splurge. 🙂
  • TheBestYoucanB
    TheBestYoucanB 2 месяца назад I would have to put those under garments in a zip bag before putting in my shoes.
  • joyfuljaj
    joyfuljaj Неделю назад @thankyou next i also stuff socks into my shoes. Usually i put underwear "inside" bras to help keep their shape. looks like she stuffed a bra into her shoes, but I don't wear ones that smush like that. I'm also curious where she is going where she could use both sandals and boots.
  • thankyou next
    thankyou next 1 месяц назад I always stuff in socks
  • Jessica Tracy
    Jessica Tracy 1 месяц назад TheBestYoucanB Agreed! And I would put my shoes in bags before putting them on top of clean clothes!
  • DiDIG
    DiDIG 1 месяц назад I laughed so hard on the bag throw 😂
  • Dominique Pauyo
    Dominique Pauyo 2 дня назад Lmao! Me too! 🙄😂🤣🤦🏽‍♀️
  • cherrysha
    cherrysha Неделю назад DiDIG same 😂😂
  • Gayle Provan
    Gayle Provan 1 месяц назад Can tell you don't fly budget in Europe, that 2nd bag would never pass as a personal item, it's a handbag/laptop bag size max (some don't allow a 2nd bag at all)
  • Precious Prieto
    Precious Prieto 2 дня назад I agree! I used to be a ground crew for an international European airline and that personal item shouldn't be about the size but about the weight along with the weight of your rolling carry-on. 12 kgs is the total max or 25 lbs.
  • Nicole Ávila
    Nicole Ávila 5 дней назад Alitalia allows carryon and a little backpack that fit my computer and some clothes still...
  • J. Ho
    J. Ho Неделю назад With Flybe, a budget UK airline, one bag means ONE bag. Thomas Cook hand baggage allowance is strict. Made me weigh mine , it was out by one kg, 😫... Luckily my check-in bag was still with me, so was able to relocate items into it.
  • JB Loveday
    JB Loveday 2 недели назад And some only allow 7kgs total cabin baggage!
  • Margot 839
    Margot 839 1 месяц назад KLM does tho, i always fly economy (sometimes first, but mostly economy)
  • Jay Sterling
    Jay Sterling 1 месяц назад Some do now but check the website.Ryanair do ..but..you have to buy priority boarding and if(?) they'll gone, tough biscuit.
  • María Rodriguez
    María Rodriguez 1 месяц назад I flew economy to France last month with Air Canada and I was allowed a carry on and a backpack
  • Becca Irene
    Becca Irene 1 месяц назад Gayle Provan Yes, it’s hard to speak for all airlines in an 11 minute video but I hear ya!!
  • themori3
    themori3 2 месяца назад Re enactments are hilarious and also spot on! 😂😂😂
  • sateenma1
    sateenma1 1 месяц назад Personal item for me always includes a change of clothes and underwear AND my toiletries. In case my suitcase gets lost I'm not completely stuck.
  • Catherine Allen
    Catherine Allen 1 месяц назад When flying more than 10 hours international, I'll take 2x change of underwear and 1x change of outer clothes (2x if summer) and some washing liquid in carry-on. I've always thought it was overkill and always did it. On our most recent trip to Australia, our checked luggage was delayed almost a week! I was so glad we each had 2 days' clothing and the ability to wash it.
  • BJ Hurley
    BJ Hurley 1 месяц назад I agree completely. I’ve had some flights get delayed and had to spend the night in a hotel room. It felt so good to take a shower, put on clean clothes (undies!), and fix my hair and apply some makeup. And you’re right - replacing makeup can get expensive, even if you grab some from the cosmetics vending machine ($12 for travel mascara!). You just never know...
  • Kay
    Kay 1 месяц назад same. toiletries and makeup, if that gets lost the trip suddenly gets a whole lot more expensive, for no good reason.
  • Nichie Speaks
    Nichie Speaks 1 месяц назад Suggestions... 1: Put you underwear in Zippered plastic bag before putting them in your shoes (more hygienic). 2: Put your shoes in a plastic bag first ( hygienic).
  • JLynnEchelon
    JLynnEchelon 5 дней назад I carry mine in a mesh delicates bag and in a zippered pocket in my carry on.
  • Cooki Oreo
    Cooki Oreo 6 дней назад Nichie Speaks what videos?
  • Nichie Speaks
    Nichie Speaks Неделю назад @Kim Roach 😊 Love your videos. Keep up the good work.
  • Kim Roach
    Kim Roach 3 недели назад Nichie Speaks I was thinking that too! That’s how I pack when I’m going on vacation and it doesn’t run the risk of the bacteria on the bottom on my shoes getting on my clothes
  • Connie Jose
    Connie Jose 2 месяца назад Grate tips. I’m so happy to see iou don’t pack a ton of make ups. I like watching packing tips video and most of them packs tons of make up. I always wonder how much makeup do you need? Do you really need 50 brushes?? So thank you. I just subscribed.
  • Becca Irene
    Becca Irene 2 месяца назад Connie Jose 100% agreed! It’s so unnecessary lol. Thanks for subscribing!! :)
  • Rebecca Leah
    Rebecca Leah 1 месяц назад at 8:13 did anyone else hear "or i'll put a person there" instead of "or i'll put a purse in there" ? LOL
  • Christa Franken
    Christa Franken 3 дня назад Well, puting a person there wouldn't be a bad idea, save out on an extra ticket
  • Elen Kristin Meberg seim
    Elen Kristin Meberg seim Неделю назад Rebecca Leah i didnt hear that i heard purse
  • Becca Irene
    Becca Irene 1 месяц назад Somebody else said this too 😂
  • Numa.K
    Numa.K 1 месяц назад 💀💀💀💀💀!!!! I’ve watched them toss my double stroller & I TRY not to be “that passenger” but the moment we seen the wheel literally come off my stroller, b/c homeboy wanted to practice Olympic shot put, ohhhhh best believe momma was hot!
  • Tippytoe
    Tippytoe 3 недели назад (изменено) Numa.K That was me. I had 3 kids all in less than 4 years. We went to Hawaii and my eldest was barely 5.
  • Numa.K
    Numa.K 3 недели назад Tippytoe - seriously! Esp when your traveling by yourself with 3 kids under 5 😭
  • Tippytoe
    Tippytoe 1 месяц назад I’m okay with them tossing my luggage but not my stroller. I need to be able to push my kids around when I get to my destination.
  • Becca Irene
    Becca Irene 1 месяц назад Numa.K 😮!!!!! Oh heckkkk no!! I would be walking out on the tarmac like EXCUSE ME ☝🏼 LOL
  • Merida Nikole
    Merida Nikole Неделю назад I wouldn't put my underwear in my shoes, where I put my feet in tbh. But just a personal preference thing I guess.
  • Giulia Rose
    Giulia Rose Неделю назад i would at least put them in a zip lock, or clean my shoes before and use a ziplock
  • That Guy
    That Guy Неделю назад In your case I would be worried about your underwear contaminating your shoes
  • NurseMegz
    NurseMegz 2 месяца назад This video was so well made, informative and hilarious. Especially 6:40-7:10😂
  • mel
    mel 2 дня назад i missheard "I'll put a purse in there" with "I'll put a person there"
  • Trina D
    Trina D 2 месяца назад 😂😂👌🏽, especially the baggage handler throwing the luggage, entertaining as well as informative, thanks 👍🏽.
  • Susie Choban
    Susie Choban 2 недели назад In all honesty, that needs to be made illegal. No airport has the right to damage your luggage in any way, and every single luggage gets tears or scratches from that disrespectful treatment. It boils my blood, and I always file complaints with the airline, and get my compensation.
  • Becca Irene
    Becca Irene 2 месяца назад Trina D LOL. Thank you and you’re welcome 😊
  • sunshineyellow
    sunshineyellow 1 месяц назад Marie Kondo's method is good for drawers for everyday, you can see everything all at once, it's not for max fitting in suitcase.
  • Melissa
    Melissa 1 месяц назад sunshineyellow agree
  • Mary Eby
    Mary Eby 2 недели назад I always wear my “heaviest” clothes to the airport (coat, boots, hoodie, etc.)
  • Laurie Huber
    Laurie Huber 1 месяц назад I wouldn’t be able to lift a personal item bag with all that in it! Traveling by air used to be enjoyable. No longer so! Thanks for all the tips.
