Whether you a frequent traveler or travel less often. You always need to ensure that you don’t miss out any of the essential items. Here comes a quick checklist that will be in simplifying the process of packaging.
1. Choose Your Main Baggage
Take the baggage that is adaptable, lightweight and big enough to hold all your essentials. If you are travelling with a family you would prefer carrying a good sized rolling bag or a duffle. However if you are travelling alone or for business purpose an overnighter or backpack should be good enough.
2. Choose the right clothes
Depending upon the destination and planned activities, you can carry appropriate clothing. It’s better to carry light weight and breathable clothing, instead of huge baggage with too many clothes. While packing them, if you roll the clothes, you can save so much of space in your bag and rolled clothes don’t get crushed easily too.
You can also check the weather in advance so that you know whether you need to carry some extra stuff with you.
3. Start making a list
List down all the clothes and other things you may need such as The Basics, night dresses, sweaters, jackets, undergarments, footwear, sun glasses, camera, Travel pillow, eye mask and ear plugs, medicines, sunscreen, Toiletries, first aid box etc.
Making a check list will help you ensure that you don’t miss anything.
