Trips can be exhausting and who wants to come home and have to do a ton of work?!  The very first recommendation when planning a trip is to organize your house!  After a long vacation it’s nice to come back home and not have to worry about cleaning up and organizing.


Make A List

Start writing a list in advance! Think of all of your necessities that you use on a daily basis—from your phone charger to your shampoo and conditioner.  Writing your list ahead of time is best so you don’t forget anything of importance.  Tip: Bring the list with you so you don’t forget anything when you are packing to return home!


Bring a Folder or Pouch

Especially if you are flying, it is always a good idea to bring a folder or pouch with your important information for the trip.  For example- your itinerary, airline tickets, passport, hotel information, etc.  Keeping this in your carry on will leave it right at your fingertips for when you need quick access to it.


Choose Clothing Wisely

Plan your outfits ahead of time.  Don’t bring your whole wardrobe.  Pack what you absolutely need.  Bring things that you can mix and match to create multiple looks.   Remember to bring layers. Rolling your clothes when packing will allow for you to fit more into your suitcase.


Pack Your Toiletries in Ziplocs

Always pack your toiletries in Ziploc bags.  This will protect your other items in case anything leaks.  Even though we may not want to admit it, sometimes our bags get thrown around at the airport.  It’s best to be prepared for the worst-case scenario.


Make Yourself at Home

Don’t be afraid to use the dressers at the hotel or wherever you are staying!  Unpack and make yourself at home.  This way you don’t have to dig through your suit case and turn everything upside down to find something.


Use the Washer and Dryer
