Travel Packing Tips

It’s the WORST when you go on vacation and get to your destination only to realize you forgot the one thing you told yourself not to forget. With spring break right around the corner, I want to share a few ways to make packing easier.

  1. The first thing I do before even touching my suitcase is make a list. I write down all of the obvious things (tops, bottoms, pajamas, swimsuits) and then add the things I tend to forget like socks, headphones and sunglasses. This way I’m not paranoid about forgetting anything!
  2. Plan out your outfits for each day. This is something I do every time I travel, and it’s a game changer! I used to throw all of my favorite pants and shirts into a suitcase and call it a day, but then I would arrive at my destination with 17 shirts and 2 pants that didn’t even match. Setting out two complete outfits for each day of my vacation has changed the game 100%. If you’re a big shopper like I am, you probably shop even harder on vacation just because you’re on vacation, so don’t forget to leave space in your suitcase to make sure you have enough room to take everything home!
  3. My last and final tip is to always wear your bulkiest clothes and shoes on the plane. Coats and boots are heavy. You will save so much space by wearing your puffy jackets and bulky boots on the plane so you don’t have to pack them.

Hopefully these tips will help you achieve a smoother and less stressful travel experience on your upcoming spring break getaway! Don’t forget, visit Plato’s Closet for your spring break essentials. That way you’ll have more money to spend on your spring break adventures!
