How to Never Pack More than a Carry-On Again
I absolutely — under no circumstance — pack more than a carry on unless I’m traveling longer than 2 weeks. I refuse to wait for baggage claim and just feel better when my load is lighter.
SERIOUSLY, THIS IS ALL YOU NEED WHEN YOU TRAVEL:
Clothes: 5 tops, 3 bottoms (or swap 2 tops for 2 dresses), 2 pairs of shoes (casual & dressy—3 if you must). Make sure they are all the same color scheme and you can mix and match easily.
Toiletries: One zip lock bag with the essentials: tooth brush, tooth paste, your fav travel sized face wash and moisturizer
Makeup: if you have an insane amount, pack a travel sized version with all of your go-tos plus a little razzle dazzle eye shadow
Most things you don’t need and there’s a few more things that you can easily pick up if you accidentally leave it behind.
PACK LIGHT ONCE, AND YOU’LL NEVER OVER PACK AGAIN— IT’S JUST TOO LIBERATING.
