Efficient Packing Techniques for Stress-Free Travel

Efficient Packing Techniques for Stress-Free Travel 

Why does packing seem like a daunting task? A major source of stress is the uncertainty of knowing exactly what you’ll need at your destination. Will it rain? Will your luggage get lost? Will your plans change? This pressure to pack precisely and prevent wrinkles can be overwhelming. To help make the process smoother, consider these packing tips: Start by gathering all the clothes you think you’ll need and then remove half of them. Opt for clothes in similar colors and pack more tops than bottoms. For a 5-day trip, you’ll need 5 shirts, 2 pairs of pants or jeans, and 1 skirt, according to author Kathleen Ameche. A typical 22-inch carry-on bag can fit around 2 pairs of jeans, 3 sweaters, 2 dresses, and 5 shirts. Some of our favorite quality luggage brands are Beis Travel as well as Rimowa
