Trip packing 101

There is constant debate and list making going on over at Slow Travel, and virtually every travel site out there, about what to pack for a trip. I know it's tough and I honestly feel for all facing this dilemma. I get it!

I will tell you what is on my packing list as I do believe I have found the remedy to this very complex issue. It took me many years to figure this out and really get it down to a science. I am even flirting with the idea of writing a book about it. I do hope that this helps you in some small way.

Kathy's trip packing list made easy:

1. Whatever I freakin' want to bring!

2. See number one

Pack what feels right to you and don't be a slave to your luggage.

Enjoy your trip.

I don't have the right emoticon to put in here for your post, but suffice it to say -- LOL times 20! My kind of thinking!


Great, I'm taking everything but the house. :)

Good list, Kathy!


I appreciate that everyone has their own way of packing for a trip and it's all cool by me. I have become very practical, but I surely bring what makes me happy. I alway bring my candles!

And yes, I do laundry when I travel. That's a no brainer.
