If you ever fight with your significant other about how much to take on a trip, be sure to read "Four Signs You Have a Packing Problem" on one of our favorite sites, the Independent Traveler.com, covering these warning signs:
#1: A Wrinkled Wardrobe
#2: Damaged Goods
#3: Too Much Baggage
#4: Pre-Trip Panic
In addition to the good advice in the article, remember that B&Bs rarely have elevators, and while innkeepers are generally pleased to give you a hand with your luggage, carrying your bags from the car to the house and up one or two flights of stairs is not really in their job description!
Still not convinced? Pack up your suitcase, then carry it from your driveway into your house and up the stairs and repeat. It will help you rethink what's essential and what's not!
