Day-bags and just a tote.

After day-bag.
Foam and extras.

Charlie and I travel for weeks and even months with one Rick Steves carry-on size back-pack and one day-bag each. Day-bags must be light weight and flexible enough to go under plane/bus/train seats or sit in our laps.
I had two of these school sized back-packs.

Every ounce counts, so I removed every extra foam, clip, strap turning them into day-packs. Ready to go!!!

Pink shopping tote.

I have always carried totes to work and in the car. I am trying to carry an extra empty tote for shopping. Except for Aldi our stores are not charging for bags, but I still want to avoid the plastic bags.
This pink bag had extra foam which I removed. I have a laptop sleeve so do not need the permanent foam in my bags.

This is not unlike cutting your hair for the summer or clipping your pooch so he's more comfy!

Clever ideas - thanks for sharing.
