My husband and I are heading to Las Vegas soon and with a trip comes packing. I am notorious for overpacking my suitcase. I’ve gotten better throughout the years but still manage to bring way too much stuff. Back in January when traveling, I packed too many books and my purse was SO heavy. How does one pack too many books, I don’t even know, but I managed to do it. With this trip I made a vow to myself that I would pack everything I need in one roller carry on. Today I am going to share with you how I accomplished this because at this point failure is not an option!
For every trip I always make a packing list (surprise, surprise). This time around I decided to try something a little different. I decided that not only would I list out what I am taking, but also plan my outfits in entirety before I start packing every high heel shoe I own. I must say that this was the trick for me because I have everything I need packed in my carry on and I should have just the right amount of clothes, shoes, and accessories.
Small bags have been a lifesaver for organizing my suitcase. I always put my shoes in bags to keep the rest of my suitcase contents clean. A big purse is always a must for me when I travel. This Louis Vuitton purse or my Celine Luggage Tote are my go to’s. I then keep them organized with the smaller bags. I take a makeup bag and my liquid bag. Also, I pack a bag with any other necessities like chapsticks, kleenex, anything I need to get to quickly. Finally, I have a separate bag for chargers and cords and I also add a cross body purse inside the big purse as well.
