Packing is an art, not a science.
What does this mean? Well, it means that you can follow all the packing formulas to a T, but your suitcase still won’t feel up to snuff if you don’t avoid the packing mistakes that often negate all the awesome packing techniques we worked so hard to foster.
Wait, doesn’t that mean these are just more rules I need to follow? Not really; I think of these as mere suggestions that can help you think about how you are packing, rather than what you are packing. Perfectly packed suitcases are not made by employing expensive packing cubes and stringing your necklaces through plastic straws. They are made by a profound understanding of how to create the travel companion that serves you. Deep? Yes, it is.
Am I making it deeper than it needs to be? Sure, but I just love packing, okay?
