Make photocopies of all your important documents and store them separately from the originals. If you lose your original documents, having a copy will speed the replacement process.
Plan what clothes you will wear ahead of time to avoid over-packing.
Pack clothes that will allow you to adapt to changing weather conditions (For example: A light jacket that goes with several of your shirts, some long-sleeve shirts, jeans that look good rolled up at the bottoms).
Bring clothing that you can wear more than once. Layering clothes is a good way to re-wear items, but also deal with changing weather.
Also try to be aware of the weather where you will be staying
In the Southern part of the United States, the weather is warmer but you will still need a warm jacket for cooler days.
In the Midwest/Northern part of the United States, the weather can range anywhere from Hot-to-warm-to-cold all depending on the season. Please make sure you are dressed appropriately for the weather conditions outside.
Keep your most important items in your smallest bag and keep this bag with you at all times.
Most airlines allow passengers to bring one small and one medium piece of carry-on luggage on to the plane. You must check larger luggage items at the check in counter before you proceed to your gate, and may be charged a fee.
Since you will most likely be stowing the larger of the carry-on items in the overhead bin, avoid putting items up there that you will want during the flight (ex. a sweater, book, or snack).
Please check the airport guidelines for information about what you can and cannot bring onto the plane
