That’s a couple of years ago, with my son Michael. Working in news taught me how to pack lightly…

Everyone is expected to have a “go bag” ready, what you’d take with you on an unexpected overnight trip for breaking news or weather. I’ve had my share of those, with last minute trips to places like Hollywood, Washington, D.C., New York, and even Birmingham, Alabama…to interview Willie Nelson!

Along the way, I found a few tricks that may help you pack for spring break.

1)  Roll, don’t fold.

Tightly rolled clothes take up less space than folded ones. Bonus: they don’t wrinkle as easily.

2) Forget your phone charger?

Don’t stress, you’ll find a USB plug-in on most hotel TVs.

Here are more of my favorite  Life Hacks that are great for packing.

Wherever you’re headed, have fun, take lots of pictures and make great memories!
