Pack "everything" in clear plastic bags!
The airport people appreciate it, & its much easier to find things!

Indeed, those gallon and 2 gallon size plastic bags are great to pack clothing. TSA people have said to me that they do not like touching women's personal items and the clear bags are a perfect option. I pack t-shirts, slacks, shorts, sleepwear, underwear, swim suits & beach coats in the bags too. If your suitcase gets wet while waiting on the luggage cart on the tarmac or while going up the conveyor belt into the airplane, you will discover how wonder those plastic bags can be....your clothing is not wet!!!


If there is a malfunction with your suitcase and a spill out of contents occurs, then the suitcase contents are in plastic zip bags and easily retrieved. Always remember to carry one full set of clothing, underwear, sleepwear, swimwear-sandals, etc. in your carry on bag just in case you get separated from your checked through suitcase.

Well, I don't know if this is "preparation," as you have to do it when you get to your destination, but my advice is to always visit the Tourist Information Center or Welcome Center in the town you are visiting FIRST, before going to any attractions. We learned this in Huntsville, AL, when we went to the Welcome Center the day after we went to the Space and Rocket Center-- they had coupons we could have used to save several dollars on admission.
