My travel hack list

Since I'm flying to Chicago this week, I've been looking up the best travel advice I can find. It will be at least 20 degrees colder in the Windy City than it's been in the south, so in addition to packing light (ha!) I also have to consider much cooler temps. Has anyone else been in this situation lately? I'm one part definitely overwhelmed, two parts excited! I'm ready to be on the road though - challenge accepted!

I spent all my free time last week, or what remained of it, scouring the interwebs for travel tips and hacks to make my somewhat daunting situation a lot easier. Luckily, I'm only going for three days, so I don't have to cram dozens of outfits into a suitcase. Though I tend to overpack, I'm hoping that not checking a bag will force me into realistic packing. Since I found a lot of helpful lists, I wanted to share them with you! Maybe you'll be able to find some help for your holiday travels.
