Quick Holiday Packing Tips for Those on the Move21 November 2016
It’s the time of the year again when the packing list comes out….to pack for your year-end vacation. Fret Not! Here are some top holiday packing checklist to make your holiday easy.
Tip # 1
Choose whether you want to bring a suitcase on wheels or a carry-all. Go for a chic, understated style, in a block colour. Always choose a bigger size on four wheels case than you think you will need.
Lay out your case up to a week before your trip, adding holiday clothes and accessories in as and when you remember them.
Always lay shoes in first and in pairs on the sides. Fill in any gaps with belts, jewellery and lingerie. Then lay clothes flat.
Tip # 4
For tangle free jewellery on the move, store daily treasures in a daily pill dispenser for a less costly alternative to a jewellery roll or pouch.
Do not pack things you will never wear at home. For example, beach towels and zip off leg cargo trousers take up far too much precious space.
Pack knitwear in neutral shades that can be worn with a variety of different outfits. A shirt is another staple piece every lady must include on her packing list. It’s versatile and can be worn under a snug sweater or alone if the temperature starts to pick up.
To keep clothes smelling fresh as daisy when travelling, add in a scented lavender bag. Also pack dirty laundry in one of these sweet scented bags.
Pack wardrobe in no more than 3 tones. In this way you will not end up with one side of your case that does not even see the light of day. Do not pack pieces you cannot wear with 2 different pieces. In this way, you can save your excess baggage fee.
