2. Edit ruthlessly

Jot down a packing list several days before your trip to give yourself time to grab any last-minute items. Make sure you have enough room for the absolute essentials, then be extremely selective with the rest of it. Your suitcase is like an exclusive VIP nightclub, and you’re the hard-nosed bouncer there to keep the riff-raff out. Think twice about every single thing you let into your bag. The more you can leave behind, the better. Eliminate the “just in case I need it” category entirely. If you do end up needing it, you can always buy it at your destination.
