For longer trips, I always pack old underwear and t-shirts that would otherwise be thrown out or used as cleaning rags.  I leave the old stuff behind as I travel, and can use the space for souvenirs, instead of bringing back a bunch of dirty laundry.

Take less, not more. We went to South America for 6 weeks with a carryon and tote bag each. Once you ditch the checked bag, you'll never go back. It's incredibly freeing.

What are your best packing tips? How do you pack for a weekend getaway vs. a week or multiple-week trip?
