We saved over 90 pounds by only bringing cabin luggage. The cheap flights we found charge extra for just about everything so taking camouflage only was a good way to save. We knew that USAShoestring had a washing machine so it was fine just to barring a few clothes and we wore the bulky stuff like walking shoes and fleeced on the aeroplane. The other way it saves is that we so little room whenever I see a souvenir I take picture instead as that is all I have room for, so no souvenirs ding ! The one thing I do regret is that our bags are ones you have to cArry and t h at is hard on the arms so I have been looking out for cheap. Cases o n wheels, no luck so far but I will keep looking !
