better to bring extra than to forget!

I think I overpack because I'm afraid I'll forget something, or I'll want something that's important to me.

I do okay; sometimes I don't end up wearing something, other times, I rewear things a lot. Just more incentive to go shopping, I always say :)

I must have varitey when I travel somewhere. I can't help it. I'm always afraid that I'm not going to have the right outfit or something, mostly the wrong shoes. Most of what I pack is shoes anyways...

i usually underpack and then just wear the same things again in diff. combinations. if i forgot to pack something, it gives me reason to shop :-)

Sometimes I pack one or two jackets that I don't wear.

I OVERPACK and I GET VERY STRESSED OUT about Packing. Like losing sleep...Heee!!! I move and fly around a lot with excess baggage. I don't think I will ever learn or master the art of packing.

I'm guilty of being an over-packer. I need choices. lol :P

I am the worst overpacker... I went to Florida over spring break and had to pay $25 for being twelve pounds over the weight limit -- not how I wanted to spend the first money of my trip!

My mom is the best packer, so I have learned from her ... though I still can't work the magic that she does. Whenever I travel from York to London to see my boyfriend on weekends, I get so frustrated with the amount of crap I have to haul around with me, I ended up leaving a couple outfits at his so I don't have to worry about extra clothes! I think now that spring and summer have arrived, it'll be a lot easier for everyone - winter is so difficult when you've got bulky sweaters, layers, and heavy jackets!

I think I travel heavy, but actually I've never exceeded airline weight limits because I'm simply too small to get truly large and heavy luggage to the airport or train station. (It would be a different story if I had a car!) Clothes and shoes are no problem. My weakness is beauty supplies -- a complete skin care regime, multiple hairstyling products, special brushes, curling iron, etc, etc. I have to bring the whole bathroom regardless of whether the trip is 2 days or 2 months. It looks fine if it IS a long trip, but everyone makes fun of me when they see that I brought so much for a weekend.

I just went on a business trip last week, and it was a classic case of overpacking. Ugh ugh ugh! And underpacking at the same time- Boston was a lot colder than I thought!

I have to keep my things confined to a standard rolling bag (like the flight attendants carry) when I go on weekend trips so that I don't have to check it. But when it comes to long trips, I suck at packing and end up needing to go shopping. -Bug

I would much rather overpack and deal with people giving me a hard time about it than not have what I want and/or need on my trip. And I can't seem to go anywhere without at least four pairs of shoes, even if it's just for a weekend.

I've overpacked before, but I've also traveled with almost nothing and came back with a lot. I bought a suitcase while abroad in that case.

I definitely have packing down to an art. My last two week trip to London, I flew with only carry-on luggage, and certainly wasn't wearing the same thing every day. It's all about learning how to fold this properly and leaving behind the frivolous accessories!

I use to be a huge over packer, but I've gotten so much better! "Just be who you wanna wanna."

I used to be really bad about over packing and would end up not needing half the stuff I brought. Now I just take the essentials, mix and match outfits and wear things more than once (except undies of course) or do laundry there.
