Sigh, I was supposed to be on a beach in the Bahamas, but Hurricane Matthew postponed that trip. However, being the anal retentive person I am, my bag was already packed a week ago. You know I’m the queen of the I-don’t-do-checked-bags!

Travel Hack: How Unpacking for One Trip Helps You Pack Better for Your Next Vacation

It’s been a great week here at Looking Fly on a Dime. On Monday, the crop top I styled for BuzzFeed was posted. And today, I’m sharing a few travel hacks I provided to oprah.com!!

You guys know I’m the carry-on queen {see how I fit 7 outfits, 3 pairs of shoes and accessories in my travel packing hack video} so oprah.com asked me to share additional hacks I live by and there’s one in particular I wanted to elaborate on.

How to Pack A Carry-On Like a Pro {7 Looks, 3 Pairs of Shoes & More!}

Though I consider myself the queen of carry-on, I know others who look at packing as a major challenge. And that’s why I teamed up with ESSENCE Live {Essence magazine’s weekly online show} to demonstrate exactly how to master the carry-on life.

Even though I haven’t booked anything yet, I’m already thinking about what to pack.

But, I’ve noticed most people pack unnecessary items that just take up space and weigh their bag down. So here’s what not to pack for your next vacation.
