Karen I'm so worried this is going to happen to us too. We planned on having one "share" case for any purchases. Maybe this isn't enough :s

Wow, when you get home you should lay out everything you brought and take a photo! That must be a whole lot of shopping! Are there any large items? Lucky for us when we go we have an allowance at the last 3 stops for 8 23kg bags!

Woah that is one hell of a luggage allowance. We are deliberately trying to go light on our trip on the way over we ended up with 6 x 23kg bags last time plus 3 full carry ons plus 3 very large stuffed backpacks as our 'personal items'

Sounds like our trips. Just make sure nothing is over the 23 kg's. We had one 1 kilo over and another half a kilo over and Delta made us UNPACK at the airport as they refused to take it.
