I always overpack for a trip, whether it’s business or personal travel. Last week I lugged a very heavy suitcase through airports along with my carry-on containing my laptop and makeup. No more!
I have consulted the travel experts, and they found two travel sins. The first sin is that I pack for emergencies, foreseeing the worst possible scenario, like bringing rain boots to Jacksonville, FL, in August and taking 4 extra pairs of shoes and 4 extra handbags for eBay Open in Vegas.
The solution: We should pack appropriately for the actual situation — you know, the usual needs for 5 nights in Jacksonville or Vegas. Stop considering the worst case, and pack for the reality of the destination.
Oh, and the second sin? My suitcase is too big, so I need to buy a smaller one. This I can handle. Bon Voyage!
