4 Tips for Packing Light

4 Tips for Packing Light

(NewsUSA)- When preparing for a trip, many people know just how easy it is to overpack. A few extra T-shirts here, some extra pairs of socks there, and suddenly your bags are bulging and your arms are aching from carrying them.
But with a few smart strategies, packing light doesn't have to weigh heavy on your mind. The next time that you're traveling, consider these tips:
1. Make a list. Jot down the items you normally pack each time you travel. When you get home, update the list by crossing out what you did not use and adding what you wish you had brought. This will help you streamline what you need and what you don't, and will also allow you to pack faster when preparing for a trip.
2. Pack multipurpose toiletries. All-in-one shampoos can eliminate the need for bringing conditioner, and if you pack the Schick(r) Intuition(r) Plus(tm) razor (www.schickintuition.com), you can leave the bulky shaving cream at home. Its three-blade cartridge is surrounded by a skin-conditioning solid made with milk and honey; aloe and vitamin E; or shea butter, allowing it to simultaneously lather, shave and moisturize skin.
3. Keep versatility in mind. Pack clothes that are appropriate to wear at any time of day, such as slacks and a long-sleeved button-down shirt that you can wear with the sleeves rolled up or down. This outfit, for example, is suitable for warm or cool weather, as well as several different occasions.
4. Downsize. If you use a large bag, you may feel compelled to pack more things than you really need. With a smaller bag, however, you'll have no choice but to bring only the basics. So tote a smaller bag, and resolve to make do with it.
