Even an organized person, that would be me, sometimes is amazed at the ease a little planning will create. I travel a few times a year. Though my home and office can boast of being free of clutter and having everything in its place I can not say the same for the amount of luggage that follows me on trips.
For an unexpected trip this week I decided I would travel light. A first. Determined to only take one small case I made a list of exactly what I would pack. Only three pants, four shirts, socks and underwear to last a week. My shoes and one blazer would all have to fit in my case. Also, the computer and Blackberry charger, vitamins and prescriptions all are now on my list…and all actually fit.
Today, old style dock kits have been replaced by convenient toiletry “wardrobes”. All items for the bath are not only visible, but always convenient by hanging on a bath hook or in the hotel closet. This is available at www.thecontainerstore.com. Always keep it stocked and packing for the next trip is a snap.
Keep your packing list in a “Travel File”. Update this list as needed and make packing easy. Now the hassle of air travel is a little more enjoyable. Well this trip packing took only 10 minutes to pack and I don’t miss the extra weight or stuff. Make the most of your next trip and create and use your list.
