Imagine standing in the queue ready to check-in for your flight and realising that you don’t have enough money for your luggage. Sucks, right?!

Well, not if you are Natalie Wynn, a 30-year-old woman from Manchester, England.

The wise woman decided that nothing was going to make her pay more than she had budgeted for.

“Because I had booked an all-inclusive holiday so was getting all my food and drink, I didn’t plan on bringing much money with me. I think I only had about €69 in my account just to bring with me on holiday,” she told The Sun

After she found out that her luggage was 8.81 lbs (3.9kg ) over the permitted weight limit for her Thomas Cook Airlines flight, she decided to wear all her clothes.

This meant putting on seven dresses, two pairs of shoes, two pairs of shorts, a skirt, and a cardigan.

“I didn’t want to be using the little amount [of money] I had just so I could get my bag on the plane. I literally said, ‘I’m not paying it’, and started putting my clothes on…I was boiling, absolutely boiling,” she told The Sun.

Natalie ended up saving $85 (about R1,200).
