Happy Friday! We finally had a quick glimpse of fall this week but this morning it was back to being muggy. Today I’m doing laundry and getting schedules lined up for the kids before Keith and I head off to a much needed vacation. Anyone else out there have packing anxiety?
Several years ago we missed a flight because we had luggage to check and ever since then I have tried my best to travel with carry on only. So far we have been successful but not without a little stress. I’m a habitual over packer and have an insane fear of arriving at my destination with nothing to wear! I’m always looking for pointers to make this easier and thought I would share some I’ve found over the years that have helped.
Love this packing flow chart! Have I made a list? Nope! Maybe I should start there.
I almost always head back to this post by Cassie at Hi Sugarplum and review before packing. Lots of helpful tips. One of my favorite tips I’ve learned from her is to use the space in my shoes to pack items.
This little jewelry tote from Stella and Dot has been a favorite since it arrived. Not only does it hold earring well but there are also two layers and multiple little pouches to keep everything separate. It makes a really great gift too!
Of course the first step is always getting all the dirty laundry clean so the packing can begin right? Blah! Regardless in 24 hours I will be on a plane and the anxiety will lift and I will be free of the every day routine for a few days. I can’t wait to share our trip with you guys and I will post some daily fun on instagram stories if you want to follow along!
Wishing you all a fabulous Friday!
