If enjoy traveling but despise packing. Without a doubt, pre-trip planning is something you should do:put together itineraries, researching the finest places to eat local cuisine, and scoping out the best spots to take pictures when in a new place. Packing your suitcase, on the other hand? That's when your enthusiasm completely disappears.
Use washing services more often and pack less.
Most of us are chronic over packers, which means we carry way too much clothing on every trip. To avoid overpacking, I suggest taking no more than seven days' worth of clothing. This will not only drive you to reevaluate what products are truly required, but it will also reduce the amount of excess weight you carry around. Also, let's be honest: you can (and should!) wear your clothes more than once on vacation, with the exception of your underwear. There are other options if you don't like the idea of hand-washing your clothes in your hotel room's sink while you're on vacation.
Stay away from the heavy jewelry, toiletries, and technological devices at home
Less is more, as always. The hefty chains, face cleansers, and cameras should be left at home. Scarves and shawls, which are often made of lightweight, breathable materials that are easy to travel, are great options if you like to accessorize. Keep your favorite K-beauty products handy in travel-sized bottles, whether you're a fan of the brand or not (no need to bring the originalpackage it came in). Smartphones are now so good at taking photos that they can match the quality of a high-end DSLR camera. What if I'm wrong? This could also be an ideal time to hire a local photographer to capture those memorable vacation moments.
Three pairs of shoes is the most number you can bring.
Bring as few pairs of shoes as possible because they make you feel weighed down both literally and metaphorically. Ballet flats for women may take you from day to night, depending on where you're going and how long you want to be on your feet exploring. You should avoid wearing stilettos unless you're going to a formal event like a wedding or something like that. I can assure you that you will not get enough use out of them to make them worthwhile.
Don't wear denim or other heavy fabrics anymore.
Sweaters, like jeans, may be fashionable, but they are bulky and take up a lot of room in your suitcase. Instead of bringing a bulky coat, opt for a lightweight one that can be layered should the weather turns sour. Make sure to include thermals that you may use as an additional layer under a thinner down-filled coat instead of bringing a large fleece coat.
Create a comprehensive packing list for your trip.
It's a little-known fact that the most stressful part of packing is figuring out what to bring. Create a comprehensive packing checklist that you can use over and over again to reduce stress and time spent organizing your bags. Your "must-have" goods (like undergarments) should be at the top of your list, and your "want but not need" items, which will vary based on your destination, should be at the bottom. As a result, you'll be able to reduce your stress and speed up the process.
Pallets should be used for storage (that also mix and match)
Using complementing colors and prints is a great way to maximize your packing space. I don't have to worry about packing "outfits" because I can mix and match everything; I can just toss in a lot of separates that I know will look fantastic in whatever combination. In order to speed up the process of packing, I use this method.
When traveling, always bring along a toiletry bag with you.
When it comes to toiletry products like toothbrushes, toothpaste, and body treatments, you don't need to bring them for every trip. Instead, store all of your lotions and potions in a separate toiletries bag in your luggage to save time. Check it every month to ensure it's always full and ready to go.
Consider breaking up your packing throughout several days.
Last but not least, if you're a chronic procrastinator, you may find it difficult to implement my advice. In contrast to packing in a few hours, spread out your packing over a few days will not only lessen your stress level, but will also save you time! Packing in "segments" will help you organize your craziness. Essentials first, then "I don't need this, but want it" items down the list until your bag is full of everything.
