Outside of clothing, bringing a bag for daily excursions is a solid move. Consider a lightweight bag with lots of pockets. Bonus points if it’s also waterproof!
Packing Your Suitcase
There’s more than one way to skin a cat, but here are our favorite ways that help us maximize space and show up somewhat presentable:
- Roll your clothes and pack them before other items: make the most of your space and help eliminate creases in your clothing by rolling your clothes (lay shirts face down, fold in the sleeves and roll up from the bottom | for pants, put the legs together and roll down from the waist). Once your clothes are packed, add shoes and accessories on top.
- Not a fan of rolling? Use packing cubes to help you stack things neatly and keep your suitcase organized.
- Choosing travel-friendly fabrics like knits and stretchy fabrics will keep you looking presentable without breaking out the hotel ironing board.
Going on vacation and exploring new outdoor adventures is fun! What’s not so fun is showing up unprepared and being miserable, or worse, missing out on opportunities, because you didn’t plan ahead.
