Last Minute Packing Tips

The most crucial aspect of travelling is packing, yet this is the often neglected part of it. Most of us rush this process. This often leads to items forgotten and a heavy luggage because tons of unnecessary items are inside.   But what can we do? We have a lot in our hands and thus can't afford to pack ahead. So, for times like these, here are some last minute packing tips that will help you avoid forgetting important items and bringing redundant ones.   1. Make a list. You may think that this will only eat up your time but if you really think about it, writing all the items you need to bring will actually stretch time. This is your key to organisation that paves way for a successful pack. When we rush packing, we usually rely on our memory and feelings. More often than not, the two fail us because they are seasonal and subject to change.   Today, you may feel that you need to bring your favourite stuff toy which is as big as you, but tomorrow you will realise that it's not practical to bring such a huge thing. So, you want to return it and go back home. If we will just take time to breathe and mull about the essentials, we can have a light luggage and not forget a single thing we need for the move.   2. Follow the list. If it's not on your list, it shouldn't be in your luggage. We are all prone to thinking that "oh! I might need this and that!" But don't let your feelings get in the way of an organised packing.   3. Relax. Keep your cool whilst you're packing. Chances are, if you hurry too much, you might break some of your stuff.   4. Let go. When we rush packing our stuff, we often feel that we've probably left something. We go sit in the plane thinking, "oh I think I left this!" And you might have forgotten it or you might have not. Either way you can't do anything about it. Just stay calm and accept the possible consequences of last minute packing.   Hopefully, these tips help you win over the negative effects of rushed packing.
