Packing 101

by - March 23, 2017

When it comes to packing two things always happens: 1. You end up forgetting something. 2. You either over/under pack. #Relatable. So I made you & I an easy "packing guide."

1. ALWAYS check your airlines baggage policy. If you are traveling by airplane it's key, because all flights have a weight limit and that will help you decide if you need to upgrade your baggage policy or take some things out.

2. Check the weather where you're traveling to. You wouldn't want to take long sleeves/sweaters to a place where its in the high 80s-90s degrees or vice versa.

3. Make a list of everything you need. Making a list will help guide you on what you need to buy/pack.

4. Gather all your clothes for the days travel. Don't over pack, because you most likely not use all the clothes, make sure to count the days.

5. To save space in your luggage, roll your clothes.  TRUST ME ON THIS ONE.

6. Pack comfortable shoes. Wherever you go you'll most likely walk a lot, so I suggest some comfortable shoes, *you'll thank me later*.  

7. Take advantage of all the pockets the luggage has. Every pocket counts and don't forget some luggage has a zipper where you can make it a bit bigger. 

8.  Take a small bag to put in all your toiletries. Not necessarily small but a bag where you can put your shampoo, medicine, toothpaste, make up, etc. Separate so they don't spill on your belongings.

9. Take a backpack/carryon for your valuables. Valuables such as: chargers, wallet, sunglasses, etc.

10. Make sure you got all the paperwork you need. (If traveling outside the country). Just don't forget your passport.

Most importantly, HAVE FUN & BE SAFE!
