    Start off with packing your clothes. Pack 1-2 extra tops and 1-2 less pants or shorts than the days you're traveling. Remember to pack PJ's, underwear, socks, bras, and your bathing suit, no matter where you go. Also, if you're traveling on a plane, make sure to pack an outfit in your carry on in case your luggage gets lost.

    Pack extra stuff like your jewelry and makeup. Just make sure not to bring too much, and if you're traveling by air and keeping your makeup in your carry-on, don't forget about the TSA rule (3.4 fl. oz or 100 millimeters per object max.)

Tips

  • If you are going away for a while, folding your clothes in half and then rolling them up really saves room!
  • Put your shoes on the bottom of your suitcase so that lighter items aren't damaged.
  • Don't pack your whole closet!
  • If you are going to be gone for more than a week, pack about half as many days you are going to be absent. You can wash your clothes in a sink or bathtub using the hand soap. It's not the best substitution for detergent, but it's definitely better than packing lots of suitcases just for your clothes!
