Packing isn’t always easy. Especially when you’re headed off on a long trip.
I headed off on a 3-week, bicoastal trip earlier this month, and packing was a bit of a daunting task. I was going to be traveling throughout multiple different climates in California, I was attending a rehearsal dinner and a wedding, and I also had to pack for business meetings in NYC. Not going to lie: I was pretty overwhelmed at the thought of packing for different types of weather and activities! I wanted to leave enough room in my suitcase to bring back wine and other souvenirs.
When I packed for this most recent trip, my checked bag only weighed 43 pounds when I initially departed for my trip. Also, I wore every single item that I packed. Here are a few tips and tricks on how to pack for a long trip!
