Thing is no matter where im going or how long for i ALWAYS leave my packing to the last minute i simply refuse to do it any other time as i always end up pulling things back out my case...
One thing i really struggle with is light packing...ill always throw something extra in on a 'just in case' basis and when i get back im like 'Why the hell did i bother'...im just rubbish at it!
I've picked up a few handy tips recently so i thought as its coming up to holiday season id do a post about it where everyone can throw in their own ideas and help each other out so here goes :)
- Instead of buying travel sized products ...shampoos/conditioner/shower gel etc... I have a set of empty travel sized bottles and just put the products i use into them and if theres any left over i just put it back into the original bottles when i get back home :)
- I read somewhere that putting your underwear/swimwear into a pair of tights squashes them up leaving more room in your case for other things :)
- Another thing i picked up from the AMAZING Petrilude a few weeks ago on Youtube is to put non slip matting in your palettes and it keeps everything safe and in place whilst you travel
- I have an electric toothbrush and its quite big & bulky to pack with the charger and i ALWAYS forget it so i've got into the habit of having a pack of spare ones lying around and then there always the first thing in!
