You’ve reached your destination….now what?
Whether you are traveling for work or fun, when you get to your hotel you want to feel at home, comfortable. Living out of a suitcase even for one night can be a pain. Although, you’ve packed efficiently, rolling outfits together to find more easily, it never really fails that you open the suitcase and things seem cluttered because it’s just packed into a tight space. Here are a few tips to make your time away less chaotic.
When you arrive, empty your suitcase. Put your toiletries in the bathroom. Hang up your outfits by day. If you have workout clothes, pj’s, undergarments, put them in one drawer in the dresser provided. Put your book on your bedside or wherever you do at home. Set up your computer at the desk and get the WiFi going. By doing this you can see everything you brought with you and use it with more ease.
The great thing about this tip is that as you wear an item you can roll it and place it back in your suitcase. I even suggest, putting something that needs to be laundered on one side of the suitcase and stuff that will just need to be put away on the other side. This will make unpacking a breeze.
By following this or a similar process you save the time rummaging through the suitcase looking for items and if on a longer trip trying to find the clean clothing. By the time you depart, you should only have to put your toiletries back in your bag (unless you tend to over pack like me!) and pack up your office items.
What’s a trick/tip you have when traveling? Love to hear from you!
