Know if you are going to use a carry on or a checked back for a suitcase. This will determine the amount and type of things you can bring. Know that you will also have your purse as a second bag to fit some of the smaller essentials.
If you are planning on bringing full size liquids or aerosols, a carry-on is out of the question. You will need to check your bag if you containers are more than 100ml. Things such as perfume, shampoo, body lotion, and sunblock must be under the size limit.
Pick the right size. Whether you decide on a carry-on or a checked suit case, think about what size you will need. If you chose to bring a carry-on, it must fit within the dimensions outlined by the airline you’re using. Most bags will need to be under 22”x14”x9” for domestic flights.  However, check with your airline before packing to be sure your bag is the right size because the allowed size differs from airline to airline.
Think about the amount of clothes you will need to fit in the bag. Clothes will take up the majority of the space in your bag. Think about how many days you’ll be gone for, and therefore how many outfits you’ll need. Depending on the time of the year and where you’re travelling to, you may need a different sized bag. Winter clothes take up more space than summer clothes. Keep in mind what you can carry. If you pack too heavily, you may have difficulty picking up your bag.
Shoes add weight quickly to luggage. Be smart about how many pairs, and what kind, of shoes you’ll need for you trip.
The luggage itself weighs a certain amount. If it has wheels, you will be able to carry more items than if you have to carry the bag on your shoulder. Along with dimension limitations, most airlines have weight limitations for carry-on and checked bags. Check with your airline for these limits.
