Why you need a luggage scale

Packing is quite a daunting task, even for someone who travels all the time. Add to that the stress of not knowing if your baggage is overweight, and it can all dampen your holiday mood.

Some people try to hold their luggage while standing on a bathroom scale, but the best and most accurate way to know the weight of your luggage is by using a digital luggage scale.

Here’s a quick look at why you should have a luggage scale when traveling.

Save money

Excess baggage fees can be extremely costly, even if the weight of your suitcase exceeds only a little. By staying within the airline’s luggage weight limits, you can avoid paying these fees. Plus, you won’t have to toss out any items and then replace them later on, saving you even more.

Save time and effort

You really don’t want to be that person who is frantically redistributing and moving items between your bags while rushing to get everything checked in. When you know for sure that your bags are under the weight limit, you don’t have to waste any time or effort in repacking your bags.

Reduce stress

Having a luggage scale means you won’t have to be worrying about whether or not your baggage is overweight. One less thing to make you stressed out, so that you can fully focus on the upcoming holiday!

Pack lighter

Most people tend to over pack with items that they actually do not really need. With a luggage scale, you will know when you are close to the limit, so you can take out the unnecessary extras. You will also know how much space to leave so that you can have enough room for souvenirs!

Essential packing tips

Here are some quick pointers to help you with your packing as you prepare for your holiday:

  • To save space and to avoid creasing, roll your clothes instead of folding them. You can also put them into vacuum compression bags.
  • Separate your items with packing cubes, so that you can find things easily and more quickly when you arrive at your destination.
  • Ziplock bags are one of the best and overlooked travel essentials. You can use ziplock bags to store snacks, electrical items, keys, medication, and other loose items. They also work well to keep your belongings from getting wet.

Remember, baggage allowances differ from airline to airline, so it is always good to check with yours before you pack up and go.
