Tips on Packing Light
Except for the few necessities (such as medicine or your passport), most things are replaceable and it’s not the end of the world if you forget to pack it. If you forget to bring something chances are that you’ll be able to buy or rent a replacement while travelling.
By planning ahead, you will reduce stress and reduce the chances of packing extra unnecessary things. Avoid being stuck in a last minute panic, wondering if you’ve remembered everything.
Making a List and Check it twice:
Know What’s in Your Suitcase:
If you just throw everything into your suitcase then it’s easy to forget what you have already put in and what you’ve forgotten to put in. Lay out everything you are planning on packing so you can see what you have.
Pre-Plan Your Outfits:
If you start randomly throwing things in your suitcase you risk bringing a lot of extra stuff. So sit down, figure out how many days you will be travelling and then plan your outfits accordingly.
Not sure if you need something? Then chances are you don’t. If you don’t need it then don’t bring it.
Chances are, unless you are travelling to some very remote area, you will have access to a washing machine. This means that you don’t need a new outfit for every day. Have enough clothing to last you seven days without washing. Mix and match pieces to create new looks.
Choose Versatile Clothing:
Pick a couple of your favorite pieces that you can layer for warmth or wear alone on warm days. Choose clothing that is versatile and that you can mix and match.
Avoid Big and Bulky:
Maximize the space you have by focusing on choosing things that take up a small percentage of space and weight.
Bring Travel Size Bottles:
Big bottles of shampoo, conditioner, soap, and so on can add a lot of weight to your suitcase. Travel with smaller bottles.
