Packing Suitcases Again & Links a la Mode July 20th

I'm currently juggling the preparation two mixed suitcases. The first is for when I fly with my son to Germany next week. The second is for when my husband joins us later. One cannot have more than 15kg. I'm a bit of a cheapskate here and then again, it's only for a part of the total stay. And the other cannot be too full either, since I have to consider the return trip in the car.

I want, of course, to take pics for the blog, so I need to think about possible outfits more than if I'd just tourist around in the area I grew up in. Quite frankly, it's doing my head in. Not so much figuring out what I want to take, but figuring out that which I want to have immediately, that which can wait and what I actually can leave at home. Not new to preparing suitcases, I shared some of my standard packing tips in the past.

For this version, I will plan the outfits, then add in a couple more tops. Never bottoms, they take too much space. Tops rolled up into a sausage always find a space. Then we lay it all out on the bed. Or your head if you are really good like that. Notoriously an overpacker, I always edit out a couple of pieces once I think I'm done. It'll probably still be too much. Especially because even with the "Funky 12 Piece Wardrobe" in effect I will get a piece or two. I know my chicken.

It's so funny that I actually enjoy living out of a suitcase, yet the capsule wardrobe frustrated me. Maybe because the other stuff was right there? I didn't pack it up, but even then, it'd been right in the house. When I'm on holidays, what's in the bag is what I got. And it's enough. With some to spare.

  1. Ich selber finde Koffer packen nicht ganz einfach. Zum Glück habe ich mich im Laufer der Zeit wenigstens ein bisschen verbessert in der Hinsicht ;) Aber ich habe noch sehr viel Potential nach oben!
