  1. Oh gosh, I’m SO bad at packing things…especially if there isn’t a way to wash things. Then I need lots of extras (just in case) especially undergarments and things like that. I did roll my clothes for my last trip and that worked really well so I could share a suitcase with my sister.

      My sisters and I went on a cruise in Oct. and I rolled my things when I packed and I was surprised at how much space I had.

      O my gosh that is awesome. I tend to think I am going to need everything that I have at home with me. lol The only way I can keep from completely taking everything is to assure myself there are stores where I am going and I can buy it if I need to.

  2. So funny, VIctoria…and timely! I have a a two-week trip to Singapore planned. As I hate being delayed in an airport, hate paying extra fees, and truly am the ‘yoga pants Queen’ I plan to travel with just one backpack and a computer bag. 2 pairs of yoga pants, 2 shorts, 1 light long pants, a few undies/bras, a pair of flip flops, sandals and running shoes and a few t-shirts will seem like luxury for me. On my last big trip (the Camino Trail in Spain) I literally only had what I was wearing and what I was washing (2 outfits for 40 days). I can hear a loud collective gasp of horror from Fashionistas all across the world!

      I can not imagine packing that light. We are going on a two week trip to Great Britain in April and I already have 4 pr of walking shoes I am taking. I am not a fashionista by any means, lol, but I tend to spill stuff or get dirt on my pants. lol I keep wanting to try yoga pants but am not sure where to look for them.

  3. I laughed out loud reading this post! My husband and I have packing issues too. Throw in all the toiletries and makeup, and it’s a real problem. Thanks for sharing on #BloggingGrandmothersLinkParty.

  4. I just bought a set of new luggage for my daughter. I thought it would be good to get her a bit more organized as she has several travel plans made. I do not think that she will be the traveling light type.
