I recently bought a Salter Royale kitchen scale for $15.99, which goes up to
7 #.  Nearly everything I have is less than 7#, so I have weighed (and
totaled up) everything individually.   (It can be challenging to balance an
external frame pack a scale this size, but I did it).   Before I leave I will
know the approximate total weight, and I'll stand on the bathroom scale with
the pack on to confirm it.  By that time I won't be interested in oz. anyway,
so absolute accuracy isn't necessary.
