I don't know about most of you, but when I go away for the weekend, I generally take one bag of clothes with me and one bag of food. It is mostly food from the four basic food groups. Chocolate, fruit pies, sugar, and potato chips. I do this of course to save on overpriced mini-bar items. That $10 Snickers bar doesn't sound like such a bad deal when you are half in the bag at 3am. For my Canadian friends who may not have Snickers, you may substitute Wunderbar for Snickers which as I discovered are pretty damn tasty and worth sacrificing a few clothes for in order to find more room.
Anyway, how many times can a person change clothes in three days? Even the most finicky person I have ever seen would probably just need one bag a day and that is the extreme. The photos above are the approximately 20 bags that Mariah Carey brought with her to London for her three day stay. 20 bags for her and Nick brought his Spongebob backpack for him. Now, that works out to six bags a day but also does not take into account the fact that I'm sure she will actually go shopping while she is in London and add to this collection. The thing we also need to remember is storing all of these bags. I don't care how big of a suite you have, you know that 20 bags are not going to fit into the closet space they gave her. I'm sure right now there is one of her assistants who is going to have to sleep on a chair in the corner of a room because they have everything from these bags hanging all over their room as Nick stands in front of the television ironing it all.
