While I love, love, LOVE travel, I don’t do it as much as I want. Or need. But then again, can any of us really travel as much as we really want to? Is there really such a thing as too much travel?
Of course not. But there is such a thing as too much packing.
I know this first hand. I am the dictionary definition of a chronic over-packer. I cannot leave the house for work without three bags–my camera bag, a purse (which may or may not have been a diaper bag for a bit…keep in mind I do not have kids), and my lunch bag. Imagine then the chaos in my luggage when I need to be gone for longer than eight hours at a time.
As I have said in a previous blog, “I don’t travel much, but when I do, everything goes with me. Sometimes double.”
It is a solid fact, but I have a simple solution that I am happy to share with you! As I prepare for a summer vacation along the East Coast to visit NYC, Philly, and DC, I am remembering that the packing struggle is real (I might need four pairs of shoes …but so is a helpful little something I made a few years back. It’s nothing much, just a list that highlights the most important items needed for vacation, but maybe it will save you just enough time to squeeze out a few more moments of your plans.
