Two week holiday. Could you manage with one cabin sized case per person?

I say yes, my Mum says no way and I am being ridiculous?
I will be able to do washing on the holiday. I just find massive suitcases really stressful and they slow us down.
Could you manage? Would you?
I know it's boring but it's consuming my planning for my Hols!

If you can wash stuff, of course!
These are great too packmate bags

We do every year; the DCs, DH and I each have a cabin sized case. DCs toys, books and iPads go into a rucksack they each wear, I buy shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and suncream at the airport in duty free and we're out through the other side as quickly as possible.
After years of lugging around huge suitcases, it is like a miracle when you realise that actually, you're not going to need 8 different pairs of shoes for one holiday.

If you wasn't going with your children, so wasn't "stuck" with bedtimes (giving time to wash clothes etc), having to stay in etc, would you want to do it with just carry on luggage.
I do appreciate that some people don't have to consider what they spend and don't wear make up etc anyway.

Interesting Snapes so you take backpacks as well as cabin sized cases? I was hoping to be able to do that as I usually take a handbag and a cabin size case usually filled with snacks drinks and other crap so kids could have back packs and their small cases.

Totally doable. One long sleeve, one long legs per person. One pair of trainers. Wear these travelling.
3/4 tops, 2 pairs of shorts, a few dresses and 1 pair of flipflops/sandals each. If you're somewhere warm, your clothes will dry in no time.
Buy shampoo etc over there and dump whatever is left at the end.
We were restricted to a carrier bag each of clothes when I was younger
