Plan each day. This will help you decide how many pieces of clothing to take. Too much and you will regret carrying everything. Too little and you will have to blow your vacation $ on clothes. Remember that you may have to change your clothes during the day for some reason, so bring some extra.
Pack several lightweight layers. This will work well for both hot and cold weather, as you can add more if you’re too cold, and take some off if you’re too hot.
Stuff your hosiery/socks inside your shoes if there is no other room for them.
Line the inside of the bag with your pajamas. This will help distribute the contents.
Pack fragile items in the center of your case. This way, they are less likely to be broken.
Put dresses top so that you can remove them easily for hanging and ironing.
Pack extra plastic grocery bag (or shoe bags). This is so that after you wear, you can put shoes away without damaging any other items or making them dirty.
Fit the undies, bras, and swimwear down the sides once the case is full. This will make sure that you don’t fill up valuable space in the middle.
Have a great trip MotherStucker!
