The Luggage Diet (Less Painful than a Juice Cleanse)

Today's travel tip comes from the most comfortable location yet...my bedroom!

That's right, I ventured to the farthest reaches of Dirtylaundrystan to talk to you a bit about some of the new luggage hitting the market now and how it will change your packing life, for the better, going forward!

I honestly can't say enough about how impressed I am with American Tourister's new Atmosphera collection. I don't know how consistent the price points are across the board; but, the link above is to Walmart, where I purchased my carry-on for just under $50.
(The ad below, while also for a 21" American Tourister rollerboard, is not part of the Atmosphera collection and was the closest thing I could wrangle-up on Google Ads. I'm sure it's also lovely!)

Another tidbit for you, in case you're strictly Samsonite...American Tourister is owned by them...so you can pack easy knowing that you're still using a luggage line that won't let you down! From what I can tell, the warranties and commitment to repair are the same with both brands.

'Til Next Time,
