Are you one of those people who likes to pack everything you own including the kitchen sink, even though you try so hard not to? You always tell yourself you will travel light this time, but things start to pile up as you include more and more "just in case" items. Before you know it, you end up preparing yourself for the worst case scenario and over pack to the extreme in the blink of an eye.
You're eventually trudging along with your ‘fit for an army' suitcase, backpack and trolley bag (not to mention extra-large holdall) wondering why you need so much for just a weekend getaway? Then when you end up just using your essential toiletries and your pyjamas, you're back to square one saying you'll pack light next time!
The key to this packing dilemma is to use multi-functional items or things that serve more than just one purpose. For example, a multi-tool pen knife, universal charger or a mini travel essentials kit. Instead of packing seven outfits for two days, pack some key pieces that work well together for both day and night.
This pared down approach can be applied to every getaway and holiday so why not rethink those essentials and narrow it down; you'll be surprised at how little you actually need and how light you can pack.
