There is so much planning before a trip. Since so many of my friends are heading off on Winter Break this month, I thought I’d share some tips for how to pack smart. Also, make sure you revisit my To-Do List for a Trip.
Write it all down. I have no idea how my husband packs for a trip with no lists. Me…I go overboard. I blame it on being a visual person but in reality, it’s probably because I have a small attention span. Anyway, I keep a packing list and it does not get crossed off until it’s in my bag.
What will you be doing? Will you need goggles and snorkels? Will you need jeans to go horseback riding? Will you need hiking boots? Sometimes it’s easy to forget to pack things for your activities.
Check the weather. Never underestimate how weather can affect your travels. In my planning stage, I look up the average temp of our destination and then I make sure I check it again before I put any clothes into my suitcase.
