Traveling is challenging enough with all one has to think about – getting
the best price on airline tickets, arranging for lodging reservations, and
being sure your passport is up-to-date with no expiration in the next 6
will watch your home, pets and garden while you are away?
one of those people who packs everything just in case you might need it? Or
you pack something because you like it, even if it’s not seasonally
appropriate and goes with nothing else in your bag?
following tips can help you bring order to packing chaos.
Days before you leave, make a list of what you
essentially need for your trip and add to that list as you think of items.
Then when you pack, you can confidently check off your list instead of
relying on memory and being anxious about forgetting something.
2) When you
travel, wear heavy clothes like your jacket on the plane, including your
heaviest shoes. Pack lighter footwear in your luggage. Shoes are the
heaviest items, so pack fewer of them and make do.
3) Pack "mix
and match" outfits so that everything goes with everything else. Or choose
two basic colors like black and white, or navy blue and khaki. Then have all
your accessories, scarves, tops, go together with these basic colors. You
can have variety without having so many items in your luggage. Plan to use
local laundry service or wash out small items in the hotel bathroom.
4) Never pack
your digital gear, cameras or your valuables in your check on luggage. Plan
to carry them onboard with you to protect them from theft.
5) If you have
pockets or a travel bag, utilize them for small items like your cell phone,
your important medicine (so you won’t be without it if your luggage gets
lost), some earplugs in case there is a screaming child or a snorer on the
plane and an eye mask so you can get shut eye on your trip.
6) Carry on a
little travel food like protein bars, some mixed nuts, and a couple of
pieces of chocolate. If you find yourself a bit hungry, you can avoid paying
airport pricing and not be starving or lightheaded when you arrive at your
is one of those travel skills you get better at the more you do it. Start
out with these travel tips, and perfect them to your style.
