Remember when you paid one price for a flight to your favorite destination and it included your luggage? Obviously those days are long gone. Discount airlines offer amazingly cheap fares (eg. Allegiant Air to Vegas) but to recover part of the revenue they lose by offering such cheap fares they charge for seat selection, soft drinks and yes, even carry on luggage. Some carriers charge up to $50 per bag.

Allegiant airlines for instance charges for anything other than a "personal item". So if you're booking a flight to Las Vegas for the upcoming Labor Day weekend, watch the video above to see how to stuff the clothes your wearing and a "personal item" (in my case a computer bag) with everything you'll need for a 4 day trip.
