Howdy! I had a long week but its ending early. My cousin is graduating high school in Tennessee, so I’m taking a weekend family trip, so I’m sharing my first packing tutorial.
It’s funny to say considering I would guess that you’ve all packed before. But I’m picky and thought I’d share my method to pack the most in the least space (I know other people who just pack as little as possible but I’m a just-in-case packer–I can’t help it).
I roll all my stuff since I know it fits better but I love that I can see everything. It’s a three-day trip and I have two pair of shoes, pajamas, five outfits, a gift, a flat iron and a toiletry/make-up bag. So I had to get all that…
It’s an Embark canvas bag from Target. It was a really great price and is very well made. It has lots o’ pockets and I love that, too.
So, the process goes like this…
Ta-da! Those pockets I mentioned aren’t just on the inside. The bag also has two generous pockets on the outside. I use one for boarding passes and the other for the quart-sized clear bag required for shampoo and contact solution since they are secure but easy to access.
So, that’s my packing routine. Did you try anything new today? Are you a throw-everything-in-a-bag person, a meticulous organizer, or do you have a unique system of your own?
