What Clothes to Pack? – 6 Important Tips

By Sunday, June 3, 2012 4 No tags Permalink 8

After so many months of traveling, I learned some invaluable lessons from fellow travels on what to pack. Most of the time, we always tend to bring more than what we really need. *oink**oink* I am definitely guilty of that. But, I always have my photographer, Gino, to carry the stuff for me because I am too small to carry stuff. *Oink*

So, here are some useful Clothes Packing tips for you. Trust me, it works!

1. Coordinate your clothes around one or two basic colors. This cuts down on the number of shoes and accessories you have to bring.

2. Take as few clothes as possible. Plan on laundering. One person suggested one week’s worth of clothes. I take fewer unless they are my washable silks.

3. Wear and carry washable silk clothing whenever possible. It is as warm as and as cool as cotton. It dries overnight and 10-15 pieces take no more room than two pair jeans. There are some other manmade fabrics that travel as well if not better, but they cost quite a bit more.

4. Plastic rain coat can double as a bathrobe or windbreaker.

5. Take older clothes that can be discarded along the way. Great for growing children. Many places, the local people are pleased to get these castoffs. There are travelers who take nothing but old clothes so they have that much more room for bringing souvenirs home.

6. Jeans – I never take them as they take so long to dry. If both the time and money for laundering are concerns, take lighter weight pants.


Happy Travels!

    If you are traveling to a warm and tropical place skip bras and underwear and just take bikinis. You will need them for swimming anyways and the nylon fabric dries much faster than cotton. The tops are much more comfy than a bra with an under wire poking you while trying to sleep on a plane as well. :)

    You actually make it seem so easy together with your presentation but I to find this matter to be really one thing that I feel I
    might by no means understand. It seems too complex and very extensive
    for me. I’m having a look forward for your next submit,
    I will try to get the hold of it!
