I’m getting ready to go to Florida tomorrow, which for me involves cleaning my house and packing. I love coming home to a clean and neat house. So, while sometimes it gets messy while I’m living in it, my place is typically pretty clean and neat when I go away.
I’ve done my fair share of packing, unpacking, repacking and such throughout my travels. Many years ago I had read a packing tip somewhere that I kind of live by: Take out everything you think you need and then put half of it away. I add a step. I take out everything I think I want to bring with me. Then, I thin it out to what I think I need. After that, I cut it in half (or almost in half). If you’ve never tried this, you should. It works every time. I’ve pretty much got it down to a science at this point. Most of the time, if I am traveling for a week or less, I can fit what I need into a backpack. This is great for 2 reasons: 1. Having a carry-on bag these days is key. 2. I live so close to the airport that a backpack enables me to walk. Let’s hope it’s not raining tomorrow morning.
Do you have any packing method?
Do you think I like the color blue?
