Shipping your golf clubs is clearly going to have the biggest impact on your ability to travel light, but some avid travelers I've met have other secrets that take things to a whole new level.
For instance, I used to think I was pretty clever using travel-size toiletries, but apparently even they have "unnecessary" space and weight (not to mention the the risk of leakage).
That's why some of these "traveling light" fanatics tell me they often use paper toiletries.
Not toilet paper. Paper toiletries. As in, shampoo, shaving cream, soap and even laundry detergent made out of thin sheets of paper.
You just add water, rub the sheets between your hands and they dissolve into foamy suds and lather. They smell quite nice, too.
Toothpaste? They've got that covered as well.
It's not paper, but chewable tablets. Apparently, one tablet is more than enough per brushing, so you can simply take what you need and leave the "unnecessarily large" bottle at home.
As for the paper toiletries, the packaging is slim, lightweight, carry-on compliant...and won't make a mess no matter how hard the baggage handlers slam your Samsonite.
Have you ever traveled with products like these? What's your favorite tip for traveling light?
