I love weekend’s away, but I’m not a quick or light packer. What to pack for a weekend away? My tips below …
Someone once told me that it should only take about 20 mins to pack for a weekend away. I don’t know what type of person they are, but I’m certainly not one of them. More’s the pity. It takes me ages to pack and the only way I can do it is pack for every eventuality and then whittle it down.
Yep, I make a right meal of packing.
Dave, on the other hand, throws a few things into a stuff bag with minimal fuss and manages to look great all the time.
I agonise over what to take and invariably either take the wrong things or end up forgetting something. Sound familiar?
I’m the sort of person who like Kevin’s Mum in Home Alone, would in a last minute dash to get to the airport forget about a child left in the house, and only remember when I’m wondering if I turned the iron off as I sit on the plane reading the inflight magazine.
So the best thing for me to do is to make a list and stick to it, otherwise I’m likely to end up with 10 pairs of shoes, and a whole load of clothes that I haven’t worn for three years and most definitely wouldn’t wear on holiday anyway.
I asked some friends what they just couldn’t live without on a weekend away and had to chuckle at their responses:-
- Ancient teddy bear
- Ugg Boots
I’d definitely pack the dress below (a few seasons old now) as it’s crinkle cut and doesn’t need ironing.
