Packing and Luggage
Packing experts will tell you to pack light and any experienced traveler will tell you that's true.  Take one piece of luggage and one carryon at the most.  Even worldwide travelers usually get by with that.   Granted, it is easier for men than women to accomplish that feat of practicality.   To get your mind focused on simplicity when packing, visit One-Bag, the award-winning website on packing or visit Packing Light  (click on Packing Tips).  We have good links to packing advice websites and also have some links to luggage websites if you need to buy some new luggage for your trip.
