When it comes to planning what you will carry on a tropical trip, there are a lot of things that you need to consider, like the type of your trip, the duration, expected weather conditions, your itinerary and so on. And when there are so many variables involved, it is quite easy to overpack and stuff your bag with things you don’t need. If you have, in the past, dealt with this issue, this blog is for you. Here, we are going to list our favorite tips for packing light so that you can be ready for a vacation at a moment’s notice.
- Decide your outfits before you pack
How many times have your struggled to fit everything back into your bag at the end of a trip, only to realize that you didn’t even wear most of the clothes you brought? The only way to avoid this common predicament is to pack by outfit. Do not pack individual tops and bottoms. Instead, take those pieces that you can pair with each other to create an outfit. Think about all that you have planned for the trip and decide on the outfits that you can wear while doing those activities.
- Make a list of all essentials
Even if you are someone who likes to pack at the last minute, a little planning can never hurt. All you need to do is make a list of all your beach vacation essentials and pack accordingly. This way you will not leave anything behind. It will also help you avoid carrying things you will not use and considerably reduce the clutter in your suitcase.
- Pack smart
The best way to keep the weight of your luggage down is to pack multi-use items. For instance, a shirt that can be worked into your everyday wear and also worn as a beach cover up. You should also look for items that are designed to make packing easy and convenient, like packing cubes and versatile and lightweight beach towels for travel that compress into travel cubes which can be used for various outdoor activities.
- Choose a small suitcase or weekender
When you have a small bag, it curbs your urge to overpack. Invest in a good quality carry-on suitcase or a duffel bag that is not too big and not too small; just enough for you. Also, hard-sided suitcases do not even allow you to stuff it with things that you will barely give a second glance at while enjoying your luxurious beach vacation.
