How to stop overpacking for trips

How to stop overpacking for trips

Here are some tips to help you stop overpacking.

Plan for what to wear ahead of the travel: This will help you choose an outfit for each day, giving you an idea of what you need as opposed to packing a bunch of mixed-up items, some of which you will end up not using.

Choose a small suitcase: This will prevent you from overpacking. If you pick a big suitcase, chances are that you will fill it up with items that you do not need. 

Decide who packs what: If you are travelling with family, plan for who fills what items before the trip. 

Do not pack for assumption’s sake: Do not pack anything on the assumption that you will need it if an opportunity arises. 

Do not pack items to try them: If you never wear an item at home, do not pack it for trying it out at your destination.

Coordinate items: Stick to one neutral colour (white or black) so that you can mix and match tops and bottoms to vary your wear, while still packing minimally.

Golden rule: Only pack items that you can wear with at least two other pieces in your suitcase.

Laundry: If your accommodation is a rental with laundry, this is an added advantage as it means you can minimise packing.
