Packing List Exposed

“How do you get everything in your bag?”

My Packing List Exposed

I lay it out on the floor. Next, I pick a color for the trip plus black and white, so everything goes with every piece. My space is limited because I use a 21-inch bag for a three-month trip or a one week trip.

My Pile of Clothes Looks Like a Mess!

First, I lay out my sunscreen and lotions. I put them in plastic baggies. I don’t wear any makeup other than these items and mascara.

Packing List Exposed, My Quirk

A glass jar holds my left over foreign money and stores my foreign currency and bills. I figure if I have left over bills, I will go back to that country some day. When I hope to return to a country, I keep a bill, as a keepsake. My money glass sites with my drinking glasses, reminding me to travel more. It looks like this. I save my leftover money from my trips, so I am always ready for my return trip.

Always exchange money in the country and not at the airport. A local store or your hotel will give you a better rate than those places at the airport. My suggestion is to keep separate wallets for currencies. One currency in each wallet. Don’t forget, keep my leftover money in a glass. It is a sentimental habit. By the way, I have been to a few places I don’t want to go back to, but not very many. I didn’t save that currency.

Flip flops for the Showers

No matter where you are going, you will need flip flops for the showers.

My packing mess includes a pile of my camera and electronic gear. I start with a standard list.

My carry-on bag is pretty standard and rarely changes, everything, goes in a place, and everything has a place. That way, when I am tired, I won’t lose anything.

You will need a Travel Medical Supply Checklist – try mine and take it to your doctor for review.

Pack this into the carry-on with your Pink Kindle like mine.

You can find my complete list for more details here.
