A road trip in your Cadillac sounds like a great idea. However, when packing, you can quickly run out of space in your luggage. To help you conquer the clutter, we have a few tips on how to pack lightly for a road trip.
Check the weather.
Look up the 10-day weather forecast for your destination. Choose clothes appropriate for the predicted weather when packing your suitcase.
Limit your wardrobe.
While you might be tempted to pack for any possible weather condition, you should focus on three versatile outfits that will keep you comfortable. Choose clothing that is easy to care for. You can always stop by a laundromat if you are staying for more than three days.
Use a gallon-size plastic bag to store all your essential toiletries. If you are staying at a hotel, you can always use the provided shampoo and soap to save you some space. Don’t forget any prescription medications you might have.
To help your clothes fit more compactly into your suitcase, you should roll each item. You can also roll outfits together to make getting ready easier. Put the heavier items, like jeans, on the bottom with the lighter items on top.
Finish packing by adding your toiletries and other lightweight essentials. And don’t forget your phone charger and a pair of lightweight shoes that you can use in case your other pair gets dirty on your travels.
