Reducing our Footprint

Shareable Luggage


A few days ago I looked at the two carry-on’s that reappeared at our house and it hit me – we do not need one-family only luggage. No family does! Nobody travels all year long. (Well, I know a few but…). What if a few families shared luggage? We do. Carry-on’s anyways. One is ours. One is borrowed from another couple. They have been travelling back and forth, not only from vacations, but also from household to household. I’d love to lend out our luggage more. It uses up space. So I say, instead of buying new luggage try borrowing some. Maybe buy a few good sets to share amongst your extended family or great friends. I’d bet there would still be weeks each year that the luggage would sit idol.

Hmm… sharing your luggage. It seems like a good idea.


Some  guys travel with expensive Louis Vuitton luggage but it gets all scratched up  under the plane. I’d rather not spend too much money on something that’s just  going to get messed up.

In  my hand luggage I always have my camera, iPod, make-up bag, tooth brush,  cleansing products, clean underwear, socks and a change of clothes in case  anything goes missing at the other end – and of course my passport.

One thought on “Shareable Luggage

  1. Much agreed. Anytime I go on %source_url&%, I find a website that is
    useful and thought-provoking.. It’s certainly helpful to examine posts from other authors and use things from other websites.
