This week, I helped a client pack for her fabulous European vacation. As I explained my packing method to her, I remembered that I had written a blog post about it years ago. Now seems like a good time to post it again!
I’m leaving for a weekend trip to attend a family wedding. As I think about packing, I thought I’d share my method for ensuring I don’t overpack.
I’ve been doing this for years — decades, really. I think I invented this system. And I’m happy to share it.
Here’s what I do:
I did this last night for my trip. And I took a picture. (The backs of envelopes are good for this.)
Here’s my outfit list for this trip:
There was no item number five!
A nice bonus is that if I want, I can bring along the lists and then I don’t have to think about what I’m going to wear each day.
I don’t list undergarments (unless there’s something special) or jewelry. I certainly could list jewelry, but I don’t have that much and I just sort of eyeball it.
I hope you find it helpful. I’ve made my packing list but haven’t packed for my trip yet — we’re leaving after I get home from a client this afternoon. It’s so nice to have the list; packing will be a snap!
