Tips to Avoid Over Packing
Prepare a packing list - Before commencing with the task of packing your suitcase, prepare a list of all the things you require for the journey (depending upon the means of transport you opt for), hygienic eatables and sufficient drinks with you (if travelling by your own car), your clothing, accessories, first-aid kit and yes, not to forget, your camera!!
Set Priorities first - Make out what is very important and what could be left out if you run out of space in your suitcase. This will avoid panic later on!
Yes guys!!! instead of just spending your time in worrying about what will you do if you miss out anything, first concentrate and pack the things which are utterly important according to your list. It will save your time and you will set a frame of your mind that, ''okay, now I am done with the basics'' and thereby you will feel more relaxed.
Check out the vacation guide - Always check the tour guide book of the place you are putting up. It will help you make out what all you may need there, for example, pack warm clothes if the atmosphere is cold there or say some swimsuits, if you are going on a place with lots of beaches and sunshine!! Such an advance knowledge will delete the end moment fuss and you will be able to enjoy thoroughly.
Make it casual, but check formals as well - Generally, holiday trips are done with family members or friends, so it is not much necessary for you to pick and pack your formal wears. But ya!! if you are supposed to attend some business meeting as well or there is some nice place that demands formals, then you can pack one or two pairs.
Mix and match can work - Doing mix-matching can work out for making your bag feel easy from the load of those extra clothes. For example, you need not carry your leggings when you are already carrying your jeans as you can wear your tops with this wearing as well. Also, if you can do with a pair of black sandals, as they go with every dress, then there is no need to pack a hell lot of pairs. The key is: Go for the colors favorable for most of the pairings such as, nudes, beige, black, white tees or shirts, blue denims, black footwears..
Choose clothes that are easy to maintain - Never choose any cloth to pack out which demands a lot of maintenance. Here, you should pick a fabric that is flexible or wrinkle-free and lighter that can be easily folded in thin layers. It will help other stuffs to adjust in your bag.
Apart from it, do not rely on excessive ''ifs and buts'' as there is no end to them. But again do not fear over packing problem as the above coated tips will help you to play with the moderation key. So take care and have a memorable holiday this time!!!
