Whether you're heading off for a weekend or for an extended-stay, start your vacation off on the right foot with a little preparation.
Make a checklist.
Get your trip off to the best start possible by planning it out! Preparation is key, especially when it comes to packing. You don’t want to forget socks (or your underwear.) Make a checklist of essentials, with a few non-essentials (like hair products or another pair of shoes) and see what you can fit into a suitcase. If you’re backpacking, think ahead to how much you’ll be able to carry without getting tired – it’ll be a long trip if you’re being weighed down with those three extra pairs of pants that seemed so necessary while you were at home, packing.
