Do you overpack? We just had Memorial Day Weekend, which, if you went away was a simple two- to three-day trip. But so many of us pack as if we’ll be gone a week or more. I’m just as guilty! When I stepped back a moment to mindfully dwell on my overpacking issues, I made a huge discovery: I overpack because my suitcase is too big. Room in my suitcase? Fill it up! My “just in case” attitude ran wild because, to me, my suitcase was half empty as opposed to half full.
I bought a much smaller suitcase. A lime green carry-on, to be exact. I love it. How do I manage packing now? Very carefully. Besides packing clothing basics such as underwear, one pair of PJs, and flip-flops (I can’t live without them), I carefully review my itinerary and pack accordingly. A great rule of thumb is to wear the same outfit to and from your destination, then pack garments that do double duty:
With some thoughtful ingenuity, you will have space left in your suitcase to fill it with that gorgeous outfit you found on your trip!
