It depends... I've just started traveling and I'm getting good at it! But I usually pack the day before so I can get some rest the night before. :)

Well if I'm going on vacation, I'll get outfit ideas in my head, but don't do actual packing until the day of. When I go to my dad's for the weekend, I usually don't pack till the hour before he picks me up :S

Procrastination is my nature! (But I do make a list in advance because I know I will procrastinate on the actual doing!)

I plan everything right down to the accessories and underwear and have it packed days before I am scheduled to leave. I make some seriously anal lists that I check off. And right before I have to walk out the door to get my ride to the airport, I always freak out thinking I must have forgotten something -- those checks can't all be right -- and rip through the suitcases looking for said item, which is nearly always at the bottom of the bag. Thus it is, I always end up getting chastised by my ride for waiting until the last minute to pack. This happens without fail every time. Dang it.

I have to plan out outfits and write down all my other things ( blow dryer, face wash, wash cloth, etc), otherwise i will forget it. and trust me, you don't want to be with me when i realized that i forgot my curling iron and i'm 3000 miles away from home, and nothing is open. (yeah, that happend one xmas . . .i wasn't happy).

I loathe packing...I am just so bad at anticipating what I will want to wear in the future. The only exception to this is beach vacations, when my bikini and flip flops are the only completely necessary items.

Well of course I shop before trips, then pack all the essentials.

I'm a huge procrastinator, but this is one area that I don't dilly around on. I have no idea why.

That picture looks like the photoshoot Fred Astaire and Audrey Hepburn do in Paris in the movie "Funny Face."

Seriously? Packing is not a big deal so it doesn't take long. I don't understand people who pack loads and loads and loads and wind up not needing half of it. I went to London for 2 weeks and packed only in an airline-approved carry on suitcase, and never felt like I needed anything else. People are too materialistic... you can go for 2 weeks without 10 pairs of shoes.

It depends on how long the trip is, where I'm going, and how I'm getting there, but typically, I pack the night before. I don't make lists, but I do plan my clothes for each day, and roll them up in little bundles all together, so I don't have to paw through different parts of the suitcase for socks, underwears, shirts, etc. And aujah--my mom packed for my dad for years, until the big suitcase that they shared got co-opted by my little sister, and my parents started taking their own separate smaller bags. So it happens, although I don't know too many women who would have their spouses pack for them.

Depends on where I'm going. Sometimes I plans weeks in advance and plan outfits with events. Then I have to account for the likelihood that I will change my mind, so 2 outfits per event. Sometimes I'm going home so I pack jeans, sweatpants, and tops. Anyway Catherine Deneuve is still hot.

i try to be all organised. I write down all I'll need, and charge up my camera, my mp3 and my phone, get the suitcase out of the attic. But guaranteed I will still be throwing things into that case at the last minute :oy:

It all depends on what the trip is but for the most part I pack at the last minute.
