6. Pack Your Carry-On Like You Are Going to a Sleepover

No one ever think they are going to be the person whose luggage gets lost until they become that person. This situation is stressful no matter what but, having items in your bag that can help you get past another day or two will lessen the burden if only by a little. For example, pack a day or two of extra attire, toiletries, and anything else you use on an everyday basis. The biggest nightmare you can face is having your luggage accidentally put on another flight and you’re left with just the clothes on your back.
