I have a confession: I love to travel. If you know me you will find this as no surprise. Where some people get stressed about the planning, the packing and all of the details I thrive on. One part that is easy for me is the packing. I think I have the packing down to a science and I have written blog posts about packing with my family that you can find here. When I work in client’s bedrooms and master bedroom closets I usually find a suitcase that has not been unpacked from their most recent travels. It just paralyzes people to unpack everything from their travels. Upon further inspections of the suitcase I usually find a plethora of clothes. Wondering why they weren’t in the laundry the most common response is that they never wore the clothes on the trip. So I got to thinking about maybe the way I pack could help other people. I don’t know a lot about fashion, but I do try to use some common sense when I pack.
