Travel in Style, Without Overpacking!

Let’s face it, we have ALL packed a bag full of clothing and shoes for a trip, thinking we would need ALL of it, only to discover that in the end we only wore about 1/4 of it.   At $25 each way, per checked bag fee, that is $50 you could have spent on…

Taking Jolee on a Marine Adventure
