Packing is a pain in the ass — but it doesn't have to be! As an ex-overpacker, I know the struggles of needing every bit of room and the fear of not taking what you might need. But I realized every trip that I only wore less than half of what I packed, meaning I wasted bag space and too much time planning my outfits. To make the packing process more efficient and to make my life easier, I thought of a method that has seriously changed the way I travel. A piece of paper and a pen are all you need to ensure you only take what you need. It's like an outfit planner and packing list all in one! Pro tip: pack your list so you don't forget anything on your way back.
