Packing for your holiday need not be a nightmare but it can be if you leave it to the last minute. The first step is to think what sort of holiday you are going on, is it beach, cruise, back packing, skiing or camping. Depending on how you will be spending your time or what events you are planning to attend will dictate your clobber requirements. How will you be travelling? By car, plane, train? Again this should also have a bearing on your packing. If you are going on a specialist holiday you know the specialist equipment you will need, but what about clothing?
You can’t be ruthless intimate clothing but you can be ruthless with everything else that is why it is important to start your packing early, pack a week ahead and you will find you can cut your baggage by half! Don’t make the mistake of putting all the heavy things in first as when you pick up you case all the heavy stuff will fall to one place and make your bag awkward to handle, for you and the baggage handlers and may lead to accidental damage. Take a look at the bag its self, is suitable for the task you’re asking it to perform? Is it old? Is the fastening safe? Is it the too big or too small? If it is too big you will be tempted to take unnecessary clutter and far too many shoes. If it is too small you will stuff it too full and risk damaged or worse bursting open on the tarmac.
What sort of holiday maker are you? Are you the sort that brings half of the local market back with you? If you are you will need to make sure you have sufficient room in your luggage for all your goodies on the return journey. So why start packing a week ahead? You keep monitoring the things you don’t need, and you can plan out fits that you can mix and match outfits that you can adapt for days and evenings by adding or omitting a few simple accessories, belts, scarves, shrugs etc. Disperse your heavy objects through you case and to save space put things in side others such as put socks inside shoes, wrap your straighteners in your towels, you get the idea don’t you?
