In order to ensure that our bags are evenly distributed and don't get over 50lbs, we bring a lightweight fishing scale that goes up to 50 lbs, as well as an empty duffle or beach bag. We weigh our luggage before we go home, and if we are over 50lbs on each suitcase (or 40lbs for some flights), we can just toss the extra weight into the duffle bag and bring it on as a carry-on
