Packing light

Friday, September 14, 2007
I'm off to Sydney today, and inspired by Monica's post "Tips for Packing Light" at the Clutter Control Freaks blog, I'm packing light. I was also inspired to make up a permanently packed bag of travel toiletries (interestingly enough I was able to do it mostly from things already in the house)

As an example, the picture below shows the bag I would usually take for such a trip (4 days, 3 nights plus uni work) on the left, and the bag I am actually taking on the right.

Yeah, that's a difference. Now if you imagine the size of the bag on the left as the carry on suitcase size, the bag on the right looks even smaller hey? Yeah, I thought so too.

It'll be a bare necessities weekend, but that's ok because I may end up sharing a room. It also helps that I only have precisely 7 maternity shirts and 4 maternity bottoms, so I could probably barely fill the small bag with all the clothes that fit me even if I tried. Back to the point: I really think this bag is the prefect size for these weekend trips of mine, and will help me not to pack piles of crap that I really don't need. I hope.

So yeah, I'm off for the weekend. I won't have my laptop with me (*pout*) but I reckon I can log in and post you all a little something while I'm away. If I don't, it just means I'm actually doing what I was there for and working really hard, and I'll see you all on Monday!
