For those of you who know My Vacation Lady, my pseudo name is the “queen of over packing”. Yes, I do have a reputation for packing way too much and bringing home 1/2 a suitcase full of clean clothes. I am always on the look out for new tips on how to pack efficiently and I came across this video.
It is, of course, a man telling you how to pack and if you look at what he packed for a week to 10 days, you’ll notice that he had 3 pair of pants and maybe 5 shirts in the suitcase. He took 1 pair of shoes. What woman packs like that for a week to 10 days? He also packed no toiletries- no make up- nothing. He does bring up a couple of good points- so it is worth watching the 3 minute video
- get a good suitcase that allows you to pack in the lid
- use all the space around the middle bar in the bottom of the suitcase (so don’t lay pants across it- pack around it.
- put underwear, etc into zip lock bags and squeeze all the air out
- wrap belts around the outside of the clothes- rolling it takes up too much room
- stuff shoes with “stuff”
