How To Pack Your Bag Properly for Business Trips

Let Me Teach You How To Pack

Time and time again I see people with massive suitcases at the airport stressing out with these massive bags! Some people show up with a huge suitcase, and then a carry on bag, and a laptop bag! Why? Are they going to Australia for three months? And what are you bringing with you that you need so much stuff? Stop the insanity people (unless you want to try Shaun T Insanity)! Most of the people that walk through the isles bumping everyone with their over-sized bags, are only going somewhere for a couple days! Let me teach you how to pack. First off, here is a picture of everything I packed into a backpack:

This means I carry one bag with through security, one bag on the plane, and I only have to focus on one thing! That's it! No laptop bags, no carry on bag, no bag to check. I check-in to my flight 24 hours before, get my boarding pass, done! And when I get to the airport, I head straight to security. This is the way the pro's travel.
