I am one of those organized packers that starts a week in advance. I lay out all my ideas for outfits, and yes, I try them all on, including shoes and jewelry. I actually make a daily schedule for trips that are longer than a week and I plan what I will be wearing each day. I HATE to overpack! I allow myself one miscellaneous outfit, just in case. I get excited about finding something new to help me organize my suitcase. My husband is the exact opposite. This picture above describes us perfectly. After 22 years of marriage I have finally let it go and don't worry about his methods.
I recently bought a sheet of these from a local store. I like to fill out the top and give them to my kids to help them pack without my help. It is a good reminder to read through before you zip up that bag for good. I recently watched a video on YouTube about how to not overpack from Ingrid Nilsen. I liked the way she organized her things so I decided to share it with you.
I want to know what kind of packer you are. Please comment below and share. Thanks!
