I’m notorious for getting to my travel destination and realizing that I packed five pair of pants and only three shirts. And one of the three shirts doesn’t even match! And I discovered the secret that solves this problem; Make a list!
Here are three simple steps to make sure you arrive with all of the clothing you intended to take:
Mentally plan what you’ll wear each day—including your travel days. Don’t forget the accessories—belts, scarves, shoes and socks.
Lay out these items and then pack in outfits, specifically.
Make a list. Write down each and ever item you need to pack and pack it in your suitcase, too.
Once you’re back home and unpack, leave one important item in your empty suitcase: The list! You’ll be miles ahead for your next trip.

Even easier…..pack all the same color! I got the idea planning a trip to Paris. The guide book said “Make it black, make it tight, and accessorize! You’ll fit right in!” So now it is always black pants, shirts, sox, shoes, in a variety of styles and weights, with any and all colors of scarves, vests, etc. Can pack for a long time with a few things this way. Shorts, capris, slacks, skirts, tees, polos, blouses. And no “extra” clothes when the other part of an outfit gets dirty!
