Minimalist Packing List

You would think as many times as I have moved around that packing would be easy to do. Well maybe someday if I learn to stop shopping, when I get to a spot,  then packing might become a piece-of-cake. Hopefully I can get all this stuff packed so it fits and I don’t have any hassle at the airport. For some reason I feel I have to many clothes. LOL

Mostly I hate carrying a bunch of heavy bags, so I will only have 1 big purse & 1 carry-on. I do plan on mailing a small box on ahead though. The airline charged $16 for the carry-on luggage.

So far this is what I got:

Small box to mail: sheets, 2 bath towels & 2 washcloths, belt, hiking boots, safety shoes for work, hoodie, Pj’s, small camera, and need to see if my small pillow will fit..if not I will leave pillow for my roomie.

Purse: Laptop  & cords, wallet with my cards &  I.D. stuff, sudoku puzzle book, cell phone & charger, lip balm & gum (can’t fly without it)

Carry-on luggage:  vitamins, tums, noxema, hairbrush, hairclips & bandana, nail clippers, hat, 3 pair of pants, 1 pair of long shorts, 2 t-shirts, 1 tank top, 3 long sleeve shirts, 1 long sleeve button down blouse, socks, panties, headlamp, Big envelope with paperwork, & stuff for my big digital camera (camera will be around my neck when I board the plane), and need to see if my travel mug will fit.

I have been trying to call the HR dept this morning to see what I actually “need” to bring. If I don’t need something then I can live without it and don’t want to take up space in my luggage. I am getting excited about getting into the swing of this seasonal work again. Just have to keep telling myself that I will be moving every 3-6 months so I need to keep my list of belongings short enough so it all fits in 1 bag.

I know lots of people who would go crazy living with my tiny list of belongings. But I go crazy trying to pack & move with all their stuff too. Just thinking of packing up a normal size closet would give me an anxiety attack and take me a month to finish packing.
