How to Pack Light on a Road Trip

When packing for a road trip, there’s a fine line between preparing and over-packing. Here are some helpful suggestions for how to pack light on your next excursion.

Check the weather

Consult the 10-day weather forecast for the regions you’ll be traveling through and in during your trip. This will help you narrow down which clothes to pack and which ones to leave in your closet.

Mix and match

Pack as few outfits as possible — and plan on doing a bit of laundry at some point during your stay. And pack clothing pieces that coordinate so you can mix and match them to change up your look.

Roll instead of fold

Folded clothes might fit well in your dresser at home, but for a suitcase, rolled clothes take up less room. Side bonus: Rolled clothes tend to wrinkle less during transportation than folded ones.

Items to leave at home

Maximize space when packing toiletries by leaving soap, shampoos, and conditioners at home when possible. Whether you’re staying at an Airbnb, a friend’s house, or a hotel, your place of lodging will likely supply these items.
