All There Is to Know About Getting a Weekend Away Worth of Items Into a Carry on Bag

When you look at all of the great travel deals which come to your inbox you likely notice that they all have one thing in common: you aren’t allowed to take on any checked bag. Not even if you pay.

If this is enough to make you stop dreaming about taking up the deal and enjoying a weekend getaway, this article is here with tips on how you can pack everything you need for a weekend away into a carry-on sized bag.

Roll It Up!

There is nothing wrong with folding your clothes when you have a suitcase to fill. However, when you are restricted then you really need a different method. Fold your clothes into a simple rectangle, for example by folding the sleeves in, and then roll it tightly into a cylinder. Once all of your clothes are like this, pack them tightly into your backpack or carry-on bag and be amazed at just how much you were able to get into the bag and just how much space is still left!

What Are You Going to Pack?

Of course, now that you know the trick on how to pack you need to know just what you should pack. Here is the list to stick to:

  • One pair of pants or jeans
  • Two blouses or shirts
  • Five pairs of socks
  • Five pairs of underwear
  • One bathing suit
  • Two Bras (if required)

It doesn’t matter if you are visiting a cold region or even the snow, just update with the trending news in the world and be sure to pack your bathing suit as it can be one of the most versatile and often required items which travelers leave behind.

Of course, you are likely thinking that this simply isn’t enough. And you would be right! Before you travel, check out the Groupon Coupons page for Nordstrom and have a fresh new outfit delivered to your work or home to change into before you leave. This will give you an entirely new and clean outfit for your travel adventure!

Toiletries and Personal Items

Despite what you might think, you can leave the house and face other people without completing your extensive beauty and healthcare routine. Remember that when you are traveling it really doesn’t matter what you look like. For this reason, stick with the following:

  • A toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Sunscreen
  • Deodorant
  • Cue-tips
  • Climate appropriate moisturizer

While it may not seem like enough, remember that your hotel bathroom will have a bevy of toiletries for you to use during your stay, often with enough for you to take home with you! For this reason, be sure to keep your toiletries bag light and only pack the bare minimum.

Hopefully, this article has changed your perception of just what you need to take with you for a weekend away and allows you to finally click the button the next time that an email comes your way with a vacation deal you just can’t resist!
