If you want to travel light, it’s not merely what you pack that matters — it’s what you don’t pack.
Yet you need not be a minimalist with featherweight shirts and quick-drying underwear to be a carry-on-only flier. The key is knowing what you can buy at or have delivered to your destination.
Below are 10 items to keep out of your bag.
Don’t want to waste vacation time at a big-box store? Outsource your shopping. Should you be visiting the San Francisco Bay Area; San Jose, California; Chicago; Dallas; or New York City, you can try eBay Now. Using Ebay.com/now or the eBay Now app, you can buy items from hundreds of retailers, and in about one to two hours a messenger will deliver your order to your door. The service is $5 an order, and you must shop one retailer at a time. Another option is to hire someone to shop for you through a site like TaskRabbit.com.
At the end of your vacation, you (or someone you hire on TaskRabbit) can send everything home via UPS or donate it to charity.
