How to Pack Efficiently For a Long Trip

How to Pack Efficiently For a Long Trip

With my upcoming 2 week trip to Italy, I started preparing myself to pack light (I am not a light traveler. Can you tell?). Since we will be taking trains and traveling between 4 cities in Italy, we decided to carry one suitcase and a backpack for our family of 3. 

Now the basic rules for packing efficiently are all over the internet. Here are the rules that I decided to follow:

  • Plan on packing outfits and not options.
    • One outfit per day and may be a couple extra.
    • Pack light weight sleepwear that can be laundered easily for re-use
  • Pack in travel cubes.
    • No more than 2 travel cube per family member
  • Organize all toiletries, makeup and medicine in travel pouches
    • I usually have pre-packed travel pouches for these that I grab and go for all my trips. It saves a lot of time!
  • Pack all shoes in shoe sleeves.
    • Each family member gets 1 shoe sleeve. But I get an exception here and get 2. Hey- a girl needs her options!

 

Now that we have the logistics figured out, let's roll up our sleeves and get to work. 

Here's what I decided to pack for me.

Here's how it looked after I packed everything up. VOILA! So compact

I can't wait to get on the plane and land in Italy. We are visiting some gorgeous cities in Italy.

Interested in knowing our toddler friendly Itinerary and the outfits I wore at the trip? Comment below and I will make it happen!
