Whether you are planning a short trip to visit family for Easter weekend or a major trip to celebrate, you can pack fairly light. Our Easter Holiday Packing List is a great way to make sure you take everything you need for your next getaway or holiday trip. I’m a big believer in keeping it to one carry one per person whether you’re flying or driving. Below are some tips for packing lighter and making things a little bit easier on yourself.
Easter Holiday Packing List
Make a list. Start mentally packing before you even get out your suitcase. Then as the trip gets closer, start making a list of items that you really need. Also, start a list of few things you may need to pick up at your local drug store, like new toiletries. Here is a printable Easter Packing List.
Wrinkle resistant fabrics. Depending on your destination, pack clothing that is easy to roll and to fold compactly. This can help keep your clothes relatively wrinkle free. This can be tricky if you are packing dressier clothes for church or fancy family dinners. Outfits with a higher percentage of polyester wrinkle less in the suitcase. Take a bottle of Downy Wrinkle release with you too.
Stick with like colors. This is the hardest part of packing and that is selecting shoes to take with you. If you pack outfits that are similar in color, then you can pack shoes that match and save room. Not only can you cut down on the shoes you take, but this goes for jewelry and makeup too. If you are wearing clothes every day from the same color family then you only need make-up and jewelry that goes with it as well. Take clothes that you can layer and can wear a few times.
No overpacking. You don’t have to pack everything. You can always pick up a few items while on your trip that you must have and don’t have room to pack. Remember no matter where you are going there will be a store there.
Pill containers. I love using those Monday – Friday pill containers that you can find at your local dollar store to keep my earrings and smaller jewelry secure and organized. They really come in handy for keeping jewelry free from tangles, and are small enough to fit easily into your purse or bag.
So, just do a little extra work before heading out on your next adventure and pack light. Use the printable holiday packing list above to make your next getaway easier to manage. Having a checklist makes everything easier to organize and helps you make sure you aren’t forgetting something.
