Quite a few of you have mentioned before what you consider "essentials" for packing when you go off to different locations, and I don't remember if I had done a packing blog before (no I didn't look before typing this). You would think as many times as I have moved around that it would be easy to do. Well maybe someday if I learn to stop shopping, then packing might become a piece-of-cake. hopefully I can get all this stuff packed so it fits and I don't have any hassle at the airport. For some reason I feel I have to many clothes. LOL
Mostly I hate carrying a bunch of heavy bags, and I will only have 1 big purse & 1 carry-on. I do plan on mailing a small box on ahead though.
So far this is what I got:
Small box to mail: sheets, 2 bath towels & 2 washcloths, belt, hiking boots, safety shoes for work, hoodie, Pj's, small camera, and need to see if my small pillow will fit..if not I will leave pillow for my roomie.
Purse: Laptop & cords, wallet with my cards & I.D. stuff, sudoku puzzle book, cell phone & charger, lip balm & gum (can't fly without it)
Carry-on luggage: vitamins, tums, noxema, hairbrush, hairclips & bandana, nail clippers, hat, 3 pair of pants, 1 pair of long shorts, 2 t-shirts, 1 tank top, 3 long sleeve shirts, 1 long sleeve button down blouse, socks, panties, headlamp, Big envelope with paperwork, & stuff for my big digital camera (camera will be around my neck when I board the plane), and need to see if my travel mug will fit.
