The secret of stress free perfect packing!

6 easy steps:

1. Plan ahead – at least 5 days in advance think about what outfit you would like to wear each day. You normally have a bit of an idea about the types of things you will be doing so imagine yourself doing these things in an outfit that will make you happy.

2. Write it down – as soon as you know in your mind what you want to take, make a list of all items including underwear etc – this way when you actually get round to packing you don’t have to stress about potentially forgetting something.

3. Bulky items should be part of your going away and coming home outfit – i.e. coats, boots, any thick jumpers.

4. Fold things carefully – making them as flat as possible – this way they take up less space.

5. If you know you are going to go shopping for clothes pack one day less than the amount of time you are away.

6. Pack for a maxim of 7 days  – if you are away longer you will most likely have the opportunity to wash and if not it won’t hurt to wear the same thing twice – small stains etc can be fixed with a spot of hand washing.

If you want to be really organised you can even pack each day in a separate plastic bag – sounds extreme but makes life much easier whilst away.

These are the packing tips which have saved me so hope they help you too!

Hi! I’m Yvonne, a 40 something (wink) Kiwi, living in Zurich. I love fashion, travel, shopping and food – believing chocolate will cure almost anything!

  1. Thank you, Yvonne! I will save this article for the next time I have to pack. It can take me several days and several edits to pack, and then I generally overpack. You offer fantastic suggestions, especially about packing outfits for one less day if you plan to shop. In my case, it might be two fewer days. 😂
