3 CLOTHING & PACKING TIPS
Since you can't walk around naked to the city your travel too (well you can, if it's a nudist colony but everywhere else it's recommended that you cover up), you must pack clothes and do it as carefully as possible so you show up looking amazing in your wrinkle-free, smelling great attire. Wondering how? Keep reading to learn all my travel packing secrets.
Every article of clothing you want to take should be planned out as to not over-pack and lug around a heavy item of unused items. Let's be smart about this. You don't have to have exact dates, but have an idea of what you should wear for the trip - ski gear, flip flops, bee repellent or umbrella.
Step One - Make a pile on your bed of what you definitely want to take (all jeans, nice shirts and t-shirts, socks with shoes, hat, you get the point) and then make smaller piles using the bigger piles of just a jean, shirt and shoes - and presto, you've created your day/night looks.
Step Two - Try on the outfits and take a picture. Why? Well for starters, (A) you now have a resource to help you remember how the outfit fits/looks and (B) once you wear the outfit, delete the picture and now you have inventory of what remains cleanly in your suitcase.
You've just taken your 'packing list' to the next level.
2. ROLL WITH IT
Take the larger or thicker items like - jeans, sweaters or coats - and layer them at the bottom of the suitcase. Not folded up, just laid as flat and as long as possible. This cuts down on the space they take up. (Genius right?!) With the rest of the items (shirts, etc.), fold them like a nice retail store and then roll them tightly like a hot-dog and pack the rolls. This will help avoid wrinkles and gives you more room to pack.
3. BE BULKY
If you are trying to pack a coat, it's going to fill up your entire suitcase. Avoid by leaving it behind - just kidding. Instead, wear it on the plane and then take it off and store it in the overhead. It will also double as a blanket in case it's a chilly airplane ride.
Packing for your trip doesn't mean you get to wear wrinkly, smelly outfits. Use these tips to look great on your next adventure. Check out the 'Before the Suitcase' before you pack; don't think you need too? Well how about a teaser - like when's the last time you cleaned your suitcase? Yep, thought so, check out that entry before you add your clean clothes into that dirty suitcase. #Packing #ItineraryTravel #PackedLikeAPro
