Less Stress and More Fun With Packing Tips From The Experts

Two Female Friends In Bedroom Packing Suitcase For Vacation

We’ve got packing tips from the experts! Planning your vacation can be tons of fun. Yet, as it gets closer to the date you leave, you must start …. packing!  This can be the dreaded part of the trip. Deciding what to take, what you’ll need, how much you can actually fit in your suitcase without it being overweight, and how do you manage the baggage fees! It can all be daunting and even stressful.

Although I’m a frequent traveler, I can find packing to be a hassle and I will toss things around before putting them in a case and hitting the road. I asked two of my friends to come along and help us sort out the best way to take the stress out of packing and make it easy to slide into our getaway.
