Can you believe it’s already Memorial Day? It feels like this holiday hits us out of nowhere every year, leaving us little time to plan and pack! Luckily, we have some tried and true tips to get you packed quickly and efficiently for your next trip!
1. Categorize into Days
When you begin packing for a trip, think about how many days/nights you’re going to be gone, and what your plans are. It helps to actually write out each day and what you might need for any events, that way you don’t forget anything! Even if they are vague, you can still give yourself options.
Example: Saturday – wake up and go to breakfast, head to the beach and then out to dinner. You’ll need 3 outfits for 1 day! *Tip* choose items that you can wear more than once over the vacation.
2. Check the Weather
You’d be surprised how many people forget this crucial step. You may have a vision in your head of what your vacation is going to look like, but with how temperamental Mother Nature has been lately, you could be in for a surprise! Be sure to bring extra layers and at least one pair of closed toe shoes!
3. Choose Wisely
Bring your current favorite pieces. Don’t bring you haven’t tried on, chances are it’ll just end up taking up room in your suitcase!
4. Travel Outfit
A comfortable travel outfit is key, no matter what the mode of transportation is! If you’re sitting in a car or on an airplane, you want to be comfortable. Slip on shoes if you’re flying, and extra scarf or sweater just in case the air conditioning is on too high. Picking an outfit you can wear on the way there and back is a good idea, one less thing to pack!
