Lifestyle | How To Master The Art Of Packing


lifestyle_logo

There are many times when we may need to pack quickly and efficiently. It can be entirely for leisure such as a getaway with family, visiting friends, or some other celebration. Or more business-oriented such as a networking event or scouting mission. Whatever the reason, there are a few tips that can always be applied. Some people appear to be naturally skilled at packing. They can visualize exactly what they’ll need and when they’ll need it. They can be ruthless when they have to be but still manage to squeeze in a few extras. For others, it is absolutely torture. Not only is deciding what to take a difficult decision, but the physical act of trying to fit it all in can stress them out! Whether you’re one, the other, or somewhere in between, try not to worry! Try these quick and easy tips to make packing entirely stress-free.

Start Early

It may not be possible to begin physically packing early because there are things you still need to use. But you can still get ahead by thinking about your packing when there is plenty of time to spare. Make lists, plan your itinerary, and assess carefully what you think you might need. Many people swear by taking photographs of the items they intend to pack and then looking through them. This gives them a sense of items that go together and whether it seems excessive or not. Many people may find that their packing would contain several t-shirts but no jeans, for example! Or lots of necklaces but only one pair of shoes. Making lists and photographs ahead of schedule mean that you’ll be able to assess these things before having actually packed them.

There will be no need to take them from the suitcase and start from scratch. Or, worse still, make the discovery after you have already arrived! Where possible, begin thinking about your packing early and you will save yourself last minute stress.

Go Through Your Routine

One of the most common irritations of packing is forgetting something. By going through your routine in your mind, you are less likely to forget the things you need. It is usually our most everyday or boring (but important) items that we leave behind! Such as our glasses, medication, or hygiene items like a Philips electric razor. By going through your day and night routine as you are packing, these items are more likely to occur to you.

Match Items To Your Itinerary

It can often be our first instinct to pack items according to the length of time we will spend away. However, it can be more helpful and accurate to pack according to our itinerary. We may not need both a casual and smart outfit for every day and night. We may only need one smart outfit for a planned dinner, and three casual outfits for sightseeing, for example. Or one casual outfit for our day off, but three formal outfits for meetings. Try to have some idea of your itinerary while packing instead of just a time scale. It’s the smarter way to pack!
