I’m a hopeless overpacker. I intend to only carry what I need, but somehow always manage to talk myself into an extra pair of pants, one more shirt, those other socks. My good intentions wind up buried in the bottom of my suitcase like those shoes I know I’m not going to wear…probably, but who knows?
I do that with my purse, too. I managed to pull out my office keys, but other than that and a few stray receipts, everything else found its way back into the bag.
I want to be one of those super efficient packers and last time I packed I even used my Rick Steves packing cubes. Interestingly enough just two of them filled up my little suitcase hardly leaving any room for my clothes. Sigh.
