Does holiday heaven mean packing hell for you? If so… we have help!
For this week’s #BORNATDAWNLIFE, @materialwhirl is embracing minimalist travel and learning how to nail the art of clever packing. We’re inspired by Alyssa Coscarelli’s recent article for Refinery29.
Alyssa is a self-confessed ‘over-packer’. She travels with *all* of her jewellery and reserves hand-luggage exclusively for accessories. She acknowledges that if you’re into fashion and love planning day-by-day looks, its stressful to know what to take.
Overestimating how much we actually need to take on holiday, and returning with half the case unworn, is a common packing mistake. Alyssa discovered on a recent trip that heels that don’t go with everything were left in the case while easily flung-on dresses - no need for ‘steaming, styling or second-thoughts’ - were a winner.
Whether long haul or city break, adopting a few simple habits can ease the pain of pre-holiday prep. Minimal packing can avoid excess charges, free up precious airport time and declutter the mind as well as the case. You may feel more confident and self-reliant as you breeze through the airport without a bulging, heavy case.
Lifestyle brand Mindbodygreen has some great tips to help pack like a minimalist:
Even for those with an aversion to travelling too light, the simpler the packing, the more enjoyable the trip… and no more sitting on a bulging suitcase praying it will shut. Happy holidays!
