While selecting what clothes to pack for your next trip may seem like an easy enough task, it’s important to remember that your packing list will change according to your destination, how long you’ll be staying, and of course, the weather. Here are some crucial questions to ask yourself so that you can get packing like an expert.

What is Your Mode of Transportation?

If you’re going to travel by car or train, then chances are that you won’t have to worry about weight restrictions. This will allow you to pack a little extra just in case. When flying, however, you’ll need to be more conscious of weight limits.

What are Your Airline’s Weight Restrictions?

If you are flying, then knowing your airline’s weight restrictions is key to determining how to pack. After all, you don’t want to incur any unnecessary penalties or fees. Still, keep a lookout to see if your airline allows you to take two pieces of baggage on board, as this may allow you to distribute the weight so that you can have two lighter pieces of luggage rather than one heavy one.

What Do You Want to Wear?

Think about your itinerary carefully before packing. After all, a beach vacation will require far different attire from a skiing trip or even an active vacation filled with mountain climbing and other sporty activities. Also, think about if you’ll need smart attire for going out at night.
