    For pete’s sake, let her shop. To let any red blooded woman
    go to PARIS, and she can’t buy anything? C’mon. This is supposed to be enjoyable! Joanie is not a wild spending
    clothes horse; she’s just a housewife and mother. Let her
    buy something. She will never forget it. :-)

    Conversely – a full bag and window shopping!

    Might be cheaper to shop in Paris than pay the airline fee for the overweight bag…

    Too much baggage can ruin a trip.

    I went to Paris in ‘84. Took one suitcase – light, easy to carry. On the way home, however, I had to sit on the suitcase to close it, and it weighed 78 pounds. Fortunately airlines weren’t charging overweight fees back then.

    @A SAINT

    But then what about the trip back?

    Yes: the commenters can’t agree on how much Joan should pack!

    Absolutely! She’s going to have to bring back souvenirs for everyone as it is, she certainly ought to buy a few things for herself. It would be so frustrating to not be able to buy anything. If that’s the case I’d postpone the trip til I had enough money to buy a few things!

    How difficult is it to ship packages from Paris to Oregon? I mean, would it be easier to ship things, even extra clothes, rather than haul them in a suitcase?

    @annamargaret1866

    That makes too much sense…
