I’m going on a vacation with my husband next month and I’m a terrible over-packer – what are your best tips for packing —not just clothes but electronics and makeup/toiletries?

Buy a carry on that you can bring on to the plane for your make up/toiletries. Clothes can be packed in between the plastic that you get from the dry cleaners to prevent wrinkling.

I’m all about gallon size ziplocks, this prevents leaks and spills on other items, you can see what you have and they can be reused!

I am a huge list maker and I find if I make a list of everything that I need I won’t over-pack.. then I keep the list as a reference for my next trip.

I create one permanent travel toiletries bag (usually in one of the “TSA approved ziplocs”) so that everytime I have to pack I can just grab it out of the cabinet and toss it in my suitcase. I also pick a color that I am going with – typically black or navy – since I feel like that dictates the shoe colors that I bring. Then I only pack outfits that can be worn with those shoes (say for example brown knee boots) – this helps me keep the shoes to a minimum which saves a ton of space.

You know how there seems to be 100 iPhone chargers floating around your house? Take one, put it in a zip-lock and keep it in your bag- always. That way you always have your charger and you never forget it while you’re traveling.
