What To Pack If Your Carry-on Limit is 5kg/11lb:
If you’re like me then you prefer to travel with nothing but what can fit into your carry-on luggage. Avoiding extra fees and worries about your things getting lost. But what if you end up booking with an airline playing some weird game where they only allow their passengers a carry-on baggage allowance of 5kg/11lbs? This list will take the stress out of trying to figure out what you can take with you.

*The best thing I ever did for my hair was to buy a satin pillowcase and satin-lined beret. The friction caused by our hair rubbing against those cheap fabrics they insist on putting on airline seats and hostel pillows does a lot of damage and causes breakage and dryness. Now I just tuck my hair into my beret when I’m flying and I use my own pillowcase in hostels, hotels, everywhere. I could see the difference in the health of my hair almost immediately.
There you have it! A packing list for even the most restrictive baggage allowances. If your airline isn’t loony and gives you a normal carry-on bag size limit then use this packing list instead!
