While there are many things that can be said about packing your life with stuff, things like the number of things you have to pack can be overwhelming. I’ve found that packing as little as possible will make it feel easier and feel like less of a hassle, while packing everything is a no-no.
One of the reasons why I avoid packing is because I don’t like the idea of having to figure out what to pack if I have to go through a suitcase. I like to have everything I need available so I don’t have to think too much about how I’m going to store the rest.
This is probably one of the easiest ways to pack, and one of the most helpful ways to reduce the amount of stuff you need to pack. If you have no idea how you’re going to store the rest of your stuff, then it’s best to do nothing. For example, if you have a lot of clothes, then it might make sense to have a box for them, so you can store them in separate boxes.
I’ve always wondered this, especially when I travel. I’ve been to China and India, India with the backpack that holds all my books and notebooks. I’ve also been to France and Italy and I have a suitcase that holds all my clothes. I also have a couple bottles of wine, some condoms, and other assorted items that I might never need.
I don’t think it’s an overpacking problem. I’ve never seen anyone pack up more than what they needed for their trip. And really, what you don’t need to pack up is the things you don’t need. For example, I don’t need a large bag to carry my laptop with me everywhere I go.
I’m not a fan of overpacking. I like to take my laptop with me, but I also like to carry a change of clothes and some snacks in the backpack so that I can take my laptop to the coffee shop or meet with the dog.
The problem is that too much stuff is just more stuff. I could pack more stuff and have less to carry, but I would have to pack twice as much stuff to save space. Thats why I tend to take my laptop with me and a change of clothes in the backpack. Sometimes I take my phone with me too, and that leads to having to carry too much stuff. I dont really like carrying a pack like that, so I tend to only carry a backpack.
I have my own rules when packing. First, I do not pack too much stuff. The reason is simple. When I am shopping or eating out I tend to bring pretty much anything that I am going to be wearing on a regular basis. There are just a few items I don’t want to bring. For example, if I am going to a party I will bring a fancy dress outfit, a fancy dress hat, and maybe a fancy dress necklace.
Again, this is not to say you shouldn’t bring stuff, but I tend to think of it more as: Do you want to pack a pack? If so, then you should pack one that is at least as big as you are.
How to not overpack is a fairly frequent question I get asked by people who are planning to go to a big event (or any event) and are worried about the amount of luggage that they will bring with them. However, even though packing a lot of stuff is important, you should also think about the things you need and what you need to bring.
