People Are Loving This Woman's Hack For Sneaking Extra Hand Luggage Onto Plane

This woman is living in 3021.

As much as we love a budget flight, we do resent the absolutely tiny amount of baggage you’re allowed to take on board sometimes.

We can barely fit our make-up bags inside our backpacks, let alone the rest of the gear we’d need for a weekend.

"If I found myself in the same circumstances, I would absolutely do it again."
