I am headed to Los Cabos in a couple of days and I am excited! I have never been before so I am really looking forward to this trip. Packing for trips can be a drag for me sometimes because I am such a procrastinator. This time around I told myself that I am going to start packing a week in advance. I just don’t want to be stuck packing last-minute.
Lately, I have become a minimalist so packing shouldn’t be that difficult. I am actually going to pack a small suitcase because im just bringing swim suits, dresses and flip-flops. There is no need to carry along items that I don’t need. I do this because I save money. I don’t have to check in my luggage and pay $100.00. I also save time because I don’t have to wait in the check-in line or baggage claim.
Whenever I am headed to a tropical destination I make sure that I bring my necessities. The first thing I pack is my swimsuits. Tip: To maximize your space in your luggage you can wear your bikini top or swimsuit as part of your outfit for the day.
The second item I usually bring is a good cover-up. I can just grab my cover-up and head out to the pool or the beach. I love wearing them because I don’t have to go back to my hotel room and change.
Next, I make sure I bring a pair of sneakers just in case I want to go hiking or join a yoga class. I also need a pair of sneakers for sight-seeing.
For my clothing I usually just pack a pair of shorts and a skirt and a couple of flowy dresses. I pack light because I know I will buy souvenirs during my stay.
And last but not least I make sure I bring a nice looking makeup bag because it can double as clutch for the evenings. This saves a lot space in my luggage and I don’t have to pack several purses for my stay.
Please share any tips you may have on packing your luggage. I would love to hear them!
