With these simple yet functional packing tips, you will be able to lessen your load on your next trip. Just grab your notebook and check them out.
#1: Make a Check list and Omit Unnecessary Items at First:
Okay, you need to stop throwing items in your suitcase when it’s time to pack. Just prepare the checklist in advance and review it as it will eliminate all the unnecessary items as possible. Once, your list has been narrowed, start packing.
#2: Don’t Pack Your Daily Beauty Care Routine:
Sure at home, you need to impress your colleagues, business associates or peers, but when you are on a trip, you might be someone really close or your family to whom your looks don’t matter. So why not go hassle free and lighter on your beauty rituals? That means you can leave your shampoo, conditioner, soap and shower products as they are included in your hotel package. Moreover, you can share products like toothpaste, sunscreen or perfumes with your friends or partner who’s traveling with you.
#3: Don’t Pack Too Many Shoes:
Maybe you don’t have noticed, but your shoes are way too heavy than your clothing. First, check the destination that you are traveling to and then choose the shoes that you have to take with you. Like if you are traveling to hiking places, you don’t have to go for fancy shoes. All you need is to go with the pair of hiking shoes.
#4: Watch for your Gadgets:
We know the gadgets are life, but when you are traveling, you need to watch for their sizes. Like packing a laptop means packing a laptop charger, a laptop case, and a backpack or suitcase. So instead of the laptop, go with the tablet that is half the size of the laptop and its accessories.
#5: Learn to Layer:
Layering is the art that you need to learn before traveling. If you are heading towards the colder place, you are definitely going to need the piles of layers. But instead of stacking a hefty winter jacket into your carry on, pack thermal gears and thin sweaters. Moreover, wear your bulkiest items, instead of stacking it up. And if you feel warm, you can always stow away in the overhead bin.
#6: Choose Items to wear that you can Mix-n-Match:
Do not bring single serving clothing items unless you want to make very poor use of the space you have. Rather, instead of ten different outfits, consider a pair of jeans that can go with your 4 tees and a jacket that can go with all your dresses. Be sure to consider this tip while you are selecting your accessories as well. Choose a sunglasses and a handbag that can go along with anything you wear.
In any case, packing less means carrying less that would give you a greater amount of freedom and ease.
