Kate, Packing 4

Packing 1

Packing 2

Packing 3

Packing 5

I've heard through the grapevine that you are a master packer.  I'm not surprised by this. Katherine told me that when the four of you showed up in New York that you only had one bag!? Is that the truth?  If so, you need to give me a lesson because I think I'm awesome packing 2 bags for the 4 of us.

I've always been the type of packer who puts together outfits so that I don't end up having a lot of extras that I never wear.  I also try and keep jewelry and shoes to a minimum by packing lightweight and neutral choices. When I backpacked through Australia and Europe I always put all my tops, pants, sweaters in separate bags so that I could just pull them out easily and stay organized.  The above are some of the outfits I came up with for Nelson B.C this summer.  I'm thinking this next trip to Hawaii will consist of a lot of dresses instead which will hopefully keep my packing to a minimum.

Speaking of which I need to get moving on laundry and packing for 3 ASAP!  If anyone has any tips or tricks with packing please share!
