Packing for a one-week trips Tricks
1. Plan a Capsule Wardrobe
10 pieces of clothing is all you need for a 1 week or even a 1 month trip. By carefully selecting basics in neutral colors and ensuring that all items can mix and match, you can make over 3 weeks’ worth of outfits with just 10 pieces of clothing.
2. Downsize Travel-size Toiletries
For a one-week trip, avoid using travel size 3oz bottles and pack only the exact amounts that you will need. Using smaller toiletry containers such as contact lens cases you can pack more of what you need in smaller quantities.
3. Packing essentials
If you are only spending a short amount of time in cold weather or if you’re unsure if you will encounter cold weather on your trip, pack only the essentials: two outerwear Plus two additional items: long sleeve top and leggings.
4. Packing Organizers
Packing cubes are the number one trick to fitting your clothing into one carry-on suitcase. It’s surprising how much you can cram into these space saving items.
5. Stylish Travel Accessories
Use the lazy girl’s guide to travel style and let your travel accessories do the hard work for you. Pack key items that will add instant style to any wardrobe without taking up much space: fedora or knit hat, woven belt, Courier Mailing Satchels, printed scarf, classic jewelry set, statement shoes, and a leather camel color handbag.
6. Carry-on Luggage
This may sounds like an obvious tip but the reality is that the more space you have the more items you will want to pack. I’ts too tempting to fill up empty space so limit yourself by purchasing a carry-on that will force you to pack less.
