Packing Tips for Short Trips

Jun 9, 2014

As I mentioned in my previous post, I went to Miami for a weekend for my cousin's baby shower. I'm pretty sure there's a lot of women out there that share my packing woes. Yes, I was only going away for four days but a girl needs options! And I didn't want to spend time digging around in my suitcase so I organized my outfits using this cool little system. It also saves you some space as well since there's this certain airline that only allows a carry-on and ONE personal item. ONE!

So for this system you need Ziploc bags in two sizes: quart and the small snack sizes. The quart sizes are for your clothes and the snack sizes are for your accessories.

So what I did was pack each outfit in a quart-sized Ziploc bag. These bags were cool because it gave you a little space for you to label. And me being all OCD, I labeled them for the occasion.

I used the smaller bags for the accessories to the corresponding outfit and once I was done, I put the smaller bag into the larger one. This made everything so easy! All my outfits were super-organized and it made getting ready a breeze!

Everything fit perfectly into the suitcase, just be sure to let all the air out of the bags before closing them. And that's packing made easy.
