6 MORE SLEEPS til we are on our way to Hawaii!!!  I don’t know who’s more excited, me or the kiddos!  This last week has been crazy trying to get things ready to go.  When packing for 6 people that  do not SHOULD NOT pack for themselves…….it can be a bit stressful.  A good stress though…….I mean, we are headed to a tropical island!! ;)  We are also going with some really good friends of ours so it’s going to be a riot!!  The poor passengers on our plane……sorry in advance! 


Since my week has been filled with packing, I thought a good post would be all about packing!  A dear friend of mine sent me a link to a very cool blog that has a post about how to pack for 10 days in a carry-on!!  It is a very good read! I am such an over-packer.  You just never know what might come up!  I know…..silly to think that I may need to pack a jacket, sweats, jeans and boots when I am going somewhere HOT!  I just want to be prepared!  LOL!  So…..I am going to try to pack like this super smart flight attendant and that way I will have more room in my suitcase for all of the tourist junk I’m going to bring home with me!  Wish me luck!


Here is the article………

This is what she packs:

  • Three pairs of shorts
  • Three pairs of dress pants
  • One skirt
  • Three pairs of casual pants or jeans
  • Three nightgowns
  • Three bathing suits
  • One sarong
  • Three lightweight sweaters
  • Four dresses
  • 10 casual shirts
  • Six dress shirts
  • A clutch
  • Toiletries
  • Two pairs of shoes

She’ll wear the third pair of shoes, as well as jeans and a longer sweater.

I will make some minor adjustments to this list since I don’t really need jeans, pants or sweaters. (Hopefully)

This is the way she manages to pack her suitcase carefully:

  • Roll up all of your clothing tightly and set it aside
  • Shoes should be packed around the sides
  • Softer clothing that is rolled up, goes on top
  • Harder clothing rolled up, is stacked on the bottom
  • Toiletries on top
  • Anything that is wrinkle-resistant can go around the edges

And she ends up with this:

Pretty wicked eh?!!  I’m super impressed!  I hope I can do this.
