Trends Watch: Lightweight baggage
Getting ready for your big trip, but not ready to spend the extra money to pay for your big heavy luggage? Yeah, same here. We checked in with the Baggage Cheque in the Riverwalk in Edwards for some tips on finding a carry-on bag that won’t leave your pocketbook too light. These bags have all the compartments necessary and provide you with the same space as a much larger bag, but are a little easier to tow around. And if you’re having trouble mastering the art of packing light, the Baggage Cheque is offering seminars starting in September. Contact the store at (970) 569-3650.
