I know it's a pain to drive, but that is one of the reasons we do. I do try to get everything into one suitcase, but my hubby always has 3-4 bags. In fairness, he does pack the snorkeling gear in one of them. I know I'm going to buy t-shirts, so I don't take a whole lot of them with me. I also buy some other clothing items like a polo shirt or a dress. I do like the mix and match idea, too. My biggest savings is in shoes. I used to pack shoes for every occasion/outfit with a purse to match. Now I pack 2 pairs, one dress with a matching evening bag, one pair of water shoes. I wear my tennis shoes on board. If I have to fly (yuck), it's amazing how much less I'll pack.
