 I am always willing to give a shout out to other travel bloggers when they have great packing posts. While we all should be traveling lightly, these posts are especially useful if you are coming up against airline imposed weight limits.  Enjoy!

Brooke Schoenman from Her Packing List  is my hero!  She recently traveled for 3 weeks with a small tote that came in at 8.2 lbs (3.7 kg). 

Eytan from Snarky Nomad shows us how to make itty bitty deodorant sticks from lip balm tubes. These are smaller and lighter than deodorant crystals! I recently tried this trick with my NARS multi-stick. Anything to save an ounce. 

Sarah Murdoch from Adventures with Sarah has a great post on how we need to consider the weight of our clothing when we travel. I found this to be true on my own recent trip to South America.
