Everyone aspires to pack light. Some travelers are successful, others can’t help but bring everything and the kitchen sink. Packing light is not a goal but a process. And it involves deeply personal decisions. Everyone has their own ideas of comfort and style. It may not always save your trip, but it will save your spine and your sanity. Here are a few packing tips for you:
How to Pack Light
Start with a bag that fits in a plane’s overhead compartment. Fill it with what you think is important and leave the rest behind. If you want to carry your laptop, purses and other important documents, opt for a carry-on bag instead of separate bags for each item.
What to Wear
Packing light for winter travel is difficult, but not impossible. Try to pick out the most important outfits you need for the trip. Fold and roll your outfits, in coordinated sets to create more space in your bag.
Sets, Sets Everywhere
Carry three pair of socks, underwear, and shirts. Wear one, wash one and dry one. This logic can also be applied to other pieces of clothing – carry two pairs of pants, two skirts, one over-coat and one jacket for the winter trip. Wisely choose the outfits you want to carry to minimize on luggage.
2 Pairs And No more
Shoes can often be the bulkiest items in our bags, so never travel with more than 2 pairs. Wear your bulkiest pair while travelling, and pack the lighter one. Pack each shoe in its own bag, so you can easily fit them into the corners of your suitcase.
Minimise the Toiletries
If you are staying in a hotel, you will be provided with shampoo and shower gel, so leave them at home. Just pack some travel sized deodorant and toothpaste in your toilet kit. Getting rid of those bulky bottles is the easiest way towards light luggage. If you can’t do without them, siphon off only as much as you need into travel-sized bottles.
