With summer just around the corner and vacations coming up, we need to teach you how to pack properly. If you’re anything like me, I have to plan and pack myself up just to go to work – so packing for a trip is so exciting!
For a week-long trip, you’re going to need at least 4 tops, 3 pants, 3 dresses, 4 pair of shoes/sandals, under garments sufficient enough for you, 2 swim suits, and miscellaneous jewelry/makeup/hats. Multiply or divide each by how long you’re vacationing. For example, if you’re going for a two week trip, then multiply the packing list by two and vice versa for a one and a half week trip or less. Once you’ve gotten all of your clothes and items ready to be packed, the most important thing to remember when physically putting them into a suitcase is that you have to fold them. Folding them saves more space than you would think, but having each garment folded and tucked prevents wrinkles. You don’t want to be wrinkly at the beach now, do you?
