We all know that it's better for our mental health and relationships to keep our homes clutter-free, but what about when it comes to travel? We talked to organization expert Peter Walsh, who says we should still strive to be organized when we're on a trip because it's a good way to relieve some of the stress of travel (which may ramp up during the holidays) when you have "a room that looks as neat as when you first checked in." Here's Walsh's best tip for travelers:
"The biggest advice I can give for when you're traveling is that if you're going to be staying for more than a night or two, as soon as you get into your hotel room, UNPACK and store the suitcases away from the main traffic area of your room . . . Unpacking also lets you take a quick look at how well your clothes 'traveled' from home. It's better to know the night before what articles may need a quick ironing job than waking up that morning and feeling panicked about not having time to look your best."
