If you're going on vacation in summer and you're traveling by plane, watch out for baggage fees. According to Airfare Watch Dog, baggage fees for your first checked bag can range from $20-$35 and a second checked bag can be $35-$60.

Spirit Airlines passengers also need to be aware that AirFare notes that:

if you change planes, you may be charged for each leg for all these fees.

Keep more of your money by minimizing waste and maximizing your bags' storage for your upcoming vacations.

Thoughts on Packing for Vacation
