How do you Pack for a Trip…..
So I thought I would repost this since I am going on a trip again this Friday and I know everyone could always use some tips on how to pack.
Friday I am leaving for New Orleans. I can’t wait I am not only going there for the first time, but I will be running in my 9th half marathon. I am traveling to New Orleans with a group called Team Challenge. We run and raise money for the Crohn’s and Colitis foundation. This is going to be fun packed weekend. Now before I can get on a plane and go away for the weekend I need to pack my suitcase. I thought it might be fun to write a post about packing.
Now I may not always be the best packer because I almost always over pack (I am always worried I do not have enough clothes) and because I am not always the most organized packer. But over the years I have received some good packing advice. The first thing I have learned is to roll your clothes instead of folding them (you will be able to fit more in your suitcase).
Another tip that I use often is to pack socks, underwear or beauty products in your shoes to keep their shape, space save and keep your beauty products from leaking. If you are on your way home from a trip and have bought some wonderful trinkets you can protect breakables by wrapping then in socks and if you bought a print or something flat that you don’t want it to get damaged, stick it in the middle of all your clothes and they will be protected from damage. Other tips are to pack your pills in your carry on incase something happens to your checked luggage. Also wearing your bulkiest clothes will free up some space in your suitcase. Also packing like items together will make it easer to find them when you get to your destination. I hope these tips will will help and I will be using them on my trip this weekend. Happy packing everyone!
