1. When your mother tells you that seven full-size bottles of perfume spray are too many, take one out. You only need six. The seventh is a decoy.
2. Try to get everything into
one two suitcase(s) and one two carry-on bag(s).
3. If you can lift it, you probably forgot something.
4. Wait until the last minute to pack your mom's high heels. That way she can't pretend that she was going to wear them. She was never going to wear them.
