Packing can be quite overwhelming sometimes. It used to be very challenging for me back when I travelled much less often. However, over the years I have come up with my own strategy that helps me get through the whole process successfully and effectively.
Just a few days after a weekend at the seaside, I am quite fresh at packing. That’s why I decided to share my holiday packing tips. They get me through the whole pre-travel hassle and make my holiday time much more enjoyable.
MAKE A LIST – That’s something I always do a couple of days prior to departure, because I tend to forget important things. And it saves me time and nerves.
PICK YOUR PERFECT SUITCASE – There’s nothing more annoying than having to travel with a suitcase or travel bag that’s inconvenient. That’s why when I am choosing one, I always look for structured suitcases with secure belts and enough zipped pockets.
PLAN YOUR OUTFITS – Consider your plans, location and weather forecast. Based on these, plan your outfits in detail. No one needs to worry about clothing during a holiday.
STICK TO A SPECIFIC COLOR PALETTE – Ideally, this should involve about 3 shades. Thus, you’ll be able to mix and match clothes and accessories and save up on space.
RELY ON TRAVEL SIZE BEAUTY – That’s a great tip, especially if you want to reduce your luggage’s weight and size. During this holiday of mine I was APITIVA’s minis.
ARRANGE STRATEGICALLY – Place shoes at the bottom, and if you are running out on space, roll your clothes instead of folding them.
MAKE USE OF EVERY SINGLE SPACE – Oversized scarf inside the hat; socks tucked in those shoes; signature fragrance inside your clutch – just be practical and creative.
TREAT YOURSELF – Get a book, headphones, play cards or anything that will make you relax. It’s holiday time – you need to enjoy every single moment of it!
