How to Start Packing

Written by shaunhuberts on . Posted in Blog 2 Comments

Alright, eventually I’ll have a bunch of pages full of advice, but for now, have a look at this picture and tell me what you see? I see a your bed as a perfect place to start organizing, the perfect packing pallet. After this, separate them into piles of similar items, like pants, shirts, etc so you can see the proportions of what you are bringing and hopefully also what you are lacking…

Now have a look at these pictures below:

What I mean by “Think Jenga” is that as you are removing and replacing your clothes from you back, you can take anything from anywhere but it should always be replaced back on top… this way you keep all your clean clothes separate from your “slightly dirties.”

The 2nd bit of advice, “It’s easy to identify your jeans when you can see the back pocket stitching” is just more proof that solidifies this packing style as the best one around.

    Clothes weigh plenty! I sturggle to keep my suitcase within the 40 lb or 50 lb limit when I’m going on a 2-3 week trip.And if you want to know what your luggage weighs, weigh it! Different suitcases have different weights because of varying construction techniques and materials.I’d recommend mixing casual and business attire in your 2 cases; that way, if one gets lost, you still have both kinds of clothing in the one you do have.Since you’re going long-term, you may want to look into the cost of sending a parcel of belongings to your destination via UPS or a similar carrier.

    Thanks Beatriz, this is the kinda discussions I want to get started so well done! And yes, if you are traveling with 2 suitcases then splitting things up is great advice. I challenge you though to only bring one bag :P
