15 Tips On How To Pack For Vacation Like A Pro

Confession: When it comes to packing for a vacation, I am the worst. Seriously. I own a lot of clothes and accessories (I have a shopping problem, it’s fine), and I do not know how to consolidate anything. When I think about what I’ll need for a vacation, even if it’s only for three days, hundreds of outfits go through my mind. I’m afraid to leave anything behind. It’s like, I know I’m going to a tropical island, but maybe I’ll need a sweatshirt, sweatpants and jeans, just in case. I never know what I’m going to be in the mood for, and I want to prepared for anything.

As a result, I am always the person on vacation with the most luggage. It never fails, and I always get made fun of for it, and I really don’t care.

But this past weekend, when I went to Ocean City, Maryland for four days with my friends, I brought WAY too much stuff – at least 15 items of clothing I never wore, along with a pile of jewelry that wasn’t touched. I have more weekend vacations coming up, and I know I need to do something about my packing problems.

So, I put together this list of packing tips for those of you who struggle just as much as I do. Whether you’re an over-packer like me, or you just want to be more neat and tidy when you go on vacation, you should check this out. Here are 15 amazing tips on how to pack like a pro.
