I got 99 problems and overpacking is one of them. Try as I might, I can never seem to pack light. Even on short trips, I usually bring a big bag — much to the frustration of my travel companions. Baggage claim is basically my home away from home.
But overpacking is such a hassle! From schlepping my suitcase down unpaved paths (channeling Cameron Diaz in The Holiday and Sandra Bullock in The Proposal) or paying extra to check my bag at the airport, it’s always an advantage to choose a carry-on instead. If you’re in the market for new luggage, then you’re in luck! We rounded up the 10 best deals on smaller travel bags that still give you enough room to store and organize your belongings. You won’t have to sacrifice style or space with these handy must-haves — all on sale!
