    I keep reading tips for packing. I am getting a bit better. But keep reading blog posts like this for new suggestions. We are big packing list fans. But hubby and I organize information different so we have a his and hers list! . I totally agree with carring Pharmacy and if we leave North America, I always pack a small pharmacy.

    I am totally a bad packer and got the habit of chucking clothes into the bag in a heap, which means I got less space in the bag to put other things in. But this is because I got a habit of packing my luggage a couple of hours before I need to be at the airport. I think my time management skills need to improve somewhat. 😀 Great tips here and ones which could save space, money and time.

    This is a very comprehensive list. I am definitely bookmarking this post. I always make sure to check the weather forecast of the place I am traveling to. This helps me to pack accordingly. Learnt this the hard way when i ended up in a cold place without a jacket.

    Lots of great tips here. It’s so important to pack properly, not having the right stuff or lugging around too much stuff can really spoil your travel plans. I never really thought about a laundry bag, I just let the clean stuff mix with the dirty stuff – that’s a good idea.

    Loved reading some travel packing mistakes and some of them are very funny. Like taking books during travel and I too find it weird as traveling itself is like reading a book. Even I too love reading, but then during traveling it becomes so hectic that we get only time to sleep at night and that too for few hours. Also sharing of suitcase space within couples or family members is the practice, I too follow.

    I think this is very true as rather than making it a joyful experience, starting to pack for your holiday makes it stressful at times. Some of these simple points can go a long way I must agree. Carrying too many shoes I am guilty of as well and have started taking less these days. I have not tried rolling as yet and might give that a shot on my next trip. Overall some great tips here and even seasoned travellers can learn or refresh from.

    Rolling clothes is something that I can totally vouch for. Carrying an extra folded bag has solved my problem many times. Keeping cubes and smaller pouches helps to do neat packing and unpacking. Yes, its not important to carry too many shoes and pharmacy. I have yet not made a packing check-list. I think I should make one and stick to it forever.

    For whatever reason I’ve been avoiding rolling like the plague. However I love your idea of using a rubber band so I might just have to try it now. This list has literally hit on all of my travel issues like forgetting a laundry bag. I’ll be using this whenever I travel now.

    Oh the lessons we learn from our experiences. I love your tip about rolling clothes instead of folding them, it has really benefited me since I started doing it. Also, it’s very essential to carry skin care products over beauty products. Using smaller bags to organise your stuff is something I only just started doing recently. All tips are pretty awesome, some things we do not even think of. Thanks for sharing!
