Painless Packing

Monday, November 19, 2012 | Away We Go

Whether heading home for the holidays or planning a yearend vacation, how you pack is just as important as what you pack. Here is a system to help you master the art of packing for all your holiday travels!

Plan Ahead

Plan out your outfits according to what activities you’ll be doing. Iron and hang up everything you plan to bring several days before you pack.

Mix & Match

Pack clothes that can be interchangeable and layered. That way you don’t have to worry about putting outfits together when you arrive.

Fill It Up

Shoes are bulky and can be tricky to pack. Walking shoes, evening shoes and flats or boots (depending on weather) should be adequate. Put heavier items (like shoes) at the bottom of the bag, and use felt bags to prevent clothes from getting dirty. Layer in folded items and put your lightest pieces on top.
