If you are like the over 90 million individuals traveling this holiday season, you are not alone in the packing and traveling struggles. What to pack, what to wear while traveling and how to do it in a stress free and manageable fashion can be a huge task. We’ve come up with some wise ways to get packing and travel in comfort and style this season.
- Pack as light as possible, the last thing you need is to feel overwhelmed by multiple heavy bags of unnecessary items. Before you say, “But what is technically unnecessary” think through your travel plans and make a list. Nail down what you will be wearing, make a list and stick to that when packing. Leave the decision back home and bring one outfit per day/event.
- Roll it! The best way to create extra room in those bags is to roll your items to maximize packing space. This can often help with wrinkled clothing as you can tight roll some items which will give them less option for heavy squishing in the pile.
- Reuse some items! Heavy sweaters and outwear can really bog you down. Think through some items to see what you are going to need. Create outfits with layers or scarves so you can go with one cardigan but wear it a number of ways to create different looks if your packing options are very limited.
- Don’t forget the comfies! Ladies, we do a lot of cooking, backing, movie watching and coffee drinking at our house, so be sure to pack those comfy clothes so you can snuggle in when the time comes to relax and take in some holiday fun. If you are unable to do so this time of year, make that comfy environment for yourself at night and snuggle in.
Be sure to pack whatever it is that makes you happy this season and enjoy every minute of your travels, wherever life takes you this season!
