How many bags does it take to move to Kenya?
Five checked bags and two excessively overweight carry-ons. 33% of you got it right! After purging again and again because I couldn't fit everything and refusing to go to six bags, it's all packed. I admit that four was my goal, but I was not at all successful at that. Fifty pounds per bag is a small amount! I could have easily fit 100 lbs in some of those bags, so 250 lbs (plus about 65 more pounds with my carry-ons) puts all my belongings at just over 300 pounds. I think that's pretty good for a three year venture. Hopefully they'll measure the same weight at the airport because there is no extra space to reposition things. We'll see. Wish me luck!
