Going on holiday is always exciting, so many places to see, food to try, people to meet and perhaps shopping to do. What isn’t so exciting is the packing part. For some reason, it seems like it’s in our nature to over-pack, especially when travelling with limited luggage space and weight restrictions. If you’re planning an upcoming trip, here are a few tips on how to pack without overdoing it:
- PLAN YOUR OUTFITS – Truth is, you probably only need a third of the things you are planning to pack. To eliminate the extra items, start by checking the weather forecast of your destination to get an idea of what the temperatures will be like.
- ROLL DON’T FOLD – Rolling clothes can actually save more space than folding them. Roll your t-shirts, sweaters, trousers, and skirts – you’ll be impressed by how much space you’ll save.
- MAKE A CHECKLIST – checklists are great! They allow you to never forget a thing (unless you forget about the checklist, that is). Make a list of things that are necessary, then go through it one more time to remove a few things.
- Last but not least, do not leave home without your travel insurance policy!
