Best Packing Tips for Lazy Travelers…

I’m one of the weird kind of lazy travelers. For the most part, I like to be organized and on top of things, but there are some activities that I’m still surprisingly laid back about. Packing is one of them during travel.

Never Unpack Your Travel Items

An adapter, an inflatable neck pillow, and a mini laundry bag are probably not necessary in your daily life. When the trip is over, pack all your travel essentials in your suitcase. That way they are in your pocket and ready to go when you need them. Plus, if it’s already packed, you don’t have to worry about forgetting it.

Keep your travel documents and important stuff in the SAME safe place

Not knowing where things are is the biggest waste of time when packing, so I do myself a favor and avoid it as much as possible. I hate unpacking and spend embarrassingly long hours but most of the time I put all my essentials back in the same place within hours of returning home. I also do this with all my camera gear and power chargers.

Keep Old Packing Lists

Perhaps you’re going on a trip that requires you to pack similar items. Keep your old packing lists from previous vacations to beaches, ski resorts, and cities.

Shoes are the enemy of carry-on luggage

Shoes take up space. the three pairs uses up the entire baggage. Because of this, I take only two pairs of shoes for my trip. Usually it’s trainers that I wear on the plane and sandals for warmer destinations, or nice leather shoes for cooler or urban destinations. If you want to wear different sandals, that may be possible, but we will do our best to adhere to the two-shoes rule.

Have a wash bag ready Always

Yes, that means double cosmetics and toiletries (but I actually use travel bottles that I can refill), but for me, the toiletry bag in my bathroom closet is ready to go. Fast dried towel has to be next to hose toiletries. I also always keep a small first aid kit (band-aids, paracetamol, travel sickness pills) in this bag and another hairbrush for when I’m out and about. Many travelers still lazy in taking care of this things.

Buy Wrinkle-Free Clothing

The wrinkle-resistant fabric is used, so there is no need to pack carefully. Roll it up in your suitcase or crumple it in the bottom of your carry-on and it will still be fresh and well-maintained when you arrive at your destination. For a lazy day at the beach, wear items that double, like a scarf that transforms into a sarong. Pack several options for layering, including jackets, shrugs, and capes. You can combine them and turn them into different outfits. Wear only half of the outfit you plan to wear. Trust me you’ll find a way to make this work.

Roll, don’t fold

We have been packing wrong for a long time. Today, many experts (including backpackers who are always interested in saving space) agree that rolling rather than folding is the best way to maximize space in your suitcase. Think about it. It does not easily wrinkle even when the clothes are rolled up and stored.

Take minimal jewelry

“You never know,” so I carried a little jewelry bag everywhere. You will know if you need jewelry for that special elegant occasion. It took me an embarrassingly long time to realize that rarely wears more than two earrings when going out (day or night), fancy bracelets or bangles, two rings and a necklace. Need more? Not forever!

I’m afraid to take it off at the security checkpoint, so I don’t wear it on the plane. I don’t think it’s worth the danger and inconvenience, so I don’t carry valuables with me.

If you have a long day of travel ahead of you, pack some clean clothes in a backpack.

If your jeans are a little too tight for the day of your trip, or if you have an overnight flight and need extra comfort, pack sweatpants and a clean shirt in your backpack, along with a pair of underwear and socks. When you know you have to sleep, change into your “travel pajamas” and you’ll feel better. Plus, nothing beats wearing fresh clothes after a long day’s travels.

You know what? They have shops in other countries too

Of course, many of us travelers prefer a particular brand of shampoo, toothpaste, or underwear, but do we really need to bring them on a three-day city vacation to an exciting new country? There is hardly a place in the world where what you need is not available in some way. What’s the big deal when you forget your home comforts and cleaning supplies? Driving to a foreign supermarket for moisturizers and cotton swabs can be more fun than you might think. These products are often cheaper abroad than domestically.

Wherever possible, once you’ve arrived – unpack

If you are one of the lazy travelers like me who packs before traveling, you do not want to spend hours packing to get home. Unpacking helps speed things up. Honestly, it’s also fun to “unpack” when you’re away. Repacking a half-disassembled bag is more time consuming (and cumbersome) than repacking an empty bag from clothing stored elsewhere. Therefore, unpack as often as possible. Even if it’s only a few nights away, I think it’s worth it.
