Five of My Favorite Packing Tip Posts!

Travel Day!  We left early this morning to begin a whole day of airports and airplanes that will end around midnight! I didn't want to leave you guys without a post though, so here is a QUICK round up of a few blog posts that I found most helpful while i was trying to pack enough clothes(both nice and outdoorsy, for both warm and cold weather) for ten days in my little suitcase! Definitely a tough project – my little closet organizer that I posted about a few months back (see it here) was so helpful during the initial planning of what to pack, as well as when it came time to narrow what I wanted to actually take.

 So here are FIVE of the most helpful posts on packing, I hope they help you too if you’re traveling soon!

Here are the steps I used to get 5 pairs of pants, 2 sweaters, 12 shirts, and 5 pairs of shoes into my little suitcase! I'll also have a pair of ponte pants in my carry-on, plus the jeans I'm wearing on the flight, so I should be set for the entire trip! I'll be posting pictures soon!
