In the last post, we took a look at one of the most important things when it comes to packing – the bag. Now let’s take a look at two other important aspect – what to pack and what to leave behind. Ready?
What to pack
Of course, the first consideration would be where you are going. Are you going to the beach? Then you should need no more than 2 swim suits, several shorts, and shirts. If you are planning on going somewhere fancy at least once, then one set of smart casual clothing would do.
On the other hand, if you are going to a city, you might want to bring along several changes of casual clothes, and a couple of “going out” clothes. If you are staying for an extended period of time, you should bring along clothing that could be mixed and matched. That way, you can bring only several items and just use different combinations to extend your wardrobe.
What NOT to pack
I highly suggest NOT packing a different pair of shoes for every single day of your trip. Instead, pick out shoes that can match most everything set of clothing that you have and make the most out of a couple of pairs. One of the worst packing practices you can engage in is to bring along all your shoes. Same thing with your clothes – as already mentioned above. Do not go for a different set everyday.
Choose what to pack and choose wisely.
