Hand luggage only for holiday

I am going to Italy for 3 weeks in August and because I am too stingy to pay for a suitcase I will be going only going with hand luggage. It will be fiiine right?

There will be a washing machine where I'm staying so I can just rewash things plus I figure I can buy toiletries when I get there.

Any helpful tips on how I can pack things really tiny/do some kind of grooming that will last the whole time I'm there so I don't have to bring extra things with me would be much appreciated though!

I'm packing for two months and am already taking out the childrens favorite toys from their suitcases in order to get more of my stuff in.

I did Italy for 10 days hand luggage only 2 adults 2 kids it was fine. You can buy toiletries once you're through security at the airport which is what I did for stuff bigger than 100 ml. Thought had packed far too light but in fact could have taken even less.
