I tend to pack lightly. My parents, on the other hand, tend to push the weight limit on baggage. Aside from the annoyance of carrying all that around, it can be quite frustrating to get dinged for being a few pounds over the weight limit. Fees for breaking the limit can range from 25 to 75 dollars. Even if you are only slightly over, it’s not as though you can unpack a few things on the spot.
If you are on overpacker, I recommend getting a handle scale. You attach it to the handle of your luggage, and when you pull up, it gives you the weight. Quick, easy, and cheap. It might save you some cash and hassle if you tend to bring the kitchen sink with you.
