In my last post, I wrote about how closet “cheat sheets” can help us to better manage our wardrobes. One of the applications I mentioned for this type of wardrobe aid related to packing, and a number of readers shared that they use a cheat sheet or checklist when they travel. Since I am preparing for a trip later this week, I decided to focus today’s post on the topic of packing for travel.
Although I used to travel quite frequently, my trips have been few and far between in recent years. In fact, the last trip I took was the one I wrote about in “On Packing, Travel, and Wardrobe Gaps” back in December. Sadly, I found myself woefully unprepared for the cold weather I encountered during my trip to the Lake Tahoe area to visit family. Although the primary topic of my December post centered on wardrobe gaps, I received many helpful packing tips from readers, many of whom are seasoned travelers.
