Take several small bags – Packing tip

Packing for a short (i.e., a week or less) spontaneous trip? Here are a few tips to help you out:

  • Pack a train case with your cosmetic, hygienic and medical necessities. The train case is the first thing you should pack. You do not want to forget any medication or toiletries.
  • Pack a small suitcase or duffel bag with a couple key items of clothing such as jeans or leggings that can be interchanged with multiple shirts.
  • Stuff a tote bag with books or magazines, a bottle of water and snacks so you won’t suffer from boredom.

Putting your items in separate bags allows you to grab what you need when you need it, and it makes packing the car (or living out of a small room) much simpler.
