HOW I MAKE MY PACKING LIST

Hi there people, as you know, I’ll be travelling with bae next week (stay tuned on my instastories to find out more about where we’re going), and I thought that this would be a great time to show you how I create my packing lists for any trips I make.

Now, for those of you who know me or have been following me for a while, you know I’m super obsesive about some things, in this case, packing, so I ALWAYS make lists. And of course packing isn’t the exception.

¡Hola! Como les conté la semana pasada, bae y yo viajaremos la próxima semana (no se pierdan mi instastories para saber a dónde vamos) y pensé que sería un buen momento para enseñarles cómo hago mis listas para empacar en cada viaje que hago.

Para aquellos que me conocen o que me han estado siguiendo desde hace tiempo, saben que soy super obsesiva con algunas cosas, en éste caso, hacer maleta, así que SIEMPRE hago una lista.

After sever years of packing list making I’ve discovered that the easiest way to go is by day, so I make a small list for each day that includes ONLY the clothes, shoes and accessories I’ll need each day.

I make another list for toiletries, and another one for tech, and I add a last category under “OTHERS” where I put anything that might not be toiletries or tech, I also put in here clothes that I’ll need more than one day, such as my PJ’s, other things that go in there are any medicine I’m taking, things I don’t want to forget to put in my bag such as my passport or a book for the trip.

Once I’m done with my list and I’m sure there’s nothing I’m forgeting, I start placing everything in my suitcase in the order it’s on the list and crossing it out from it, and that’s it, packing made simple and easy.

Después de varios años de hacer listas de empacar, he descubierto que la manera más sencilla de hacerlo es por día, hago una pequeña lista para cada día que estaré fuera que SÓLO incluye la ropa, zapatos y accesorios que usaré ese día.

Hago otra lista para productos de baño y belleza, y otra para tecnología, agrego una categría más con el nombre de “OTROS” donde pongo todo lo que no vaya en ninguna de las categorías anteriores o ropa que usaré más de un solo día, como mi pjama, otras cosas que van en esa lista son mis medicamentos, cosas que no quiero olvidar poner en mi bolso, como mi pasaporte o un libro.

Ya que acabo de hacer la lista y estoy muy segura de que no hay nada que olvide, empiezo a guardar todo en la maleta en el orden que está en mi lista y tachándolo de la misma, y eso es todo, hacemos la maleta fácil y rápido.
