How to Pack One Suitcase

Hello everyone, 
Today I'm going to pack  my suitcase for my five hour airplane flight to the East Coast. 
I have packed my Camera Case GO HERE and I've hung my outfit I'm going to wear for the long flight on the closet door. GO HERE I'm made a packing list of clothes I'm going to be wearing on my three week  or 21 day vacation. We will see how tired I get and when I've eaten enough Lobster. LOL
The yellow sweatshirt, gray top, black jeans and my Sunflower scarf I bought at the British Museum on my trip to England in 2011.  
Sea Foam Green♥ I love this color. I bought this top a Macy's on sale. I have a black sleeveless top underneath and black pants...The pair I wore on the airplane. I wear a different pair of pants everyday. I let them air out as you say. I will wear this top in the evening for dinner. Now this is a secret...I sometimes wear it every night. We are going to eat at a different place and nobody knows me anyway. 
The Autumn Leaves are falling. Have you guessed where I going yet?
I have blue jeans and white long sleeve cotton top with my fall sweater and a red scarf. How about the little apple on the zipper end. I bought this sweater in 2005 from Gottschalks. I only wear it September, October and November.
Pajamas and robe. Warm and cozy PJ's and a light robe. My sister bought me this cute robe for my birthday in June. Just to take on this trip. 
This outfit is just for lounging in the evening after a day of sightseeing. I wear yoga pants and a sweater and a soft sweatshirt in the evening while we watch television or I put this outfit on in the afternoon if we take a rest before going out to dinner. I don't mind taking off my touring clothes for a little while in the afternoon and read a book or play candy crush. Yes!!! I love candy crush. Oh I just remembered that sometimes we have dinner early and then buy ice cream to put in our freezer for a snack later in the evening. I love ice cream too.
I have a light weight jacket for rain or wind. It has a hood and nice roomy pockets. I layer a sweater under the jacket and put on a scarf and I'm good to go.

My suitcase in 24 inches long. 14 inches wide and  14 high when I close the suitcase for the last time.
So lets get started packing this suitcase.
I have a nice clean pair of SAS walking shoes with inserts to prevent my feet from hurting and scarves are inside the shoes. In the zipper I have my sewing kit,  alarm clock and night light. 
The pajamas and robe are rolled up over the shoes. red gloves in the corner. 
Clear bag contains, blush, liquid makeup, lipstick, eyebrow color, makeup brushes, deodorant  body wash, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush and toothpaste.  The other clear bag contains card reader, cords for computer, adapter for Canada,2 camera battery chargers, portable USB hub, cellphone charger.

  1. Betty, we too have become expert at one bag packing. It's such a free and easy way to travel isn't it! No waiting at the luggage carousel, just up and go! Love your outfits. Nicely done. Thanks for sharing at Five Star Frugal this week. Love, Mimi xxx

  2. Betty, like you I've learned to pack light. I always find that a few things can get me through several weeks. I roll my clothes too. Takes up less space. ;-)
    Have a great trip. Autumn on the east coast is a beautiful time.

  3. Hi Betty, You sure do know how to pack and NOT over-pack! My problem. All of your outfits are lovely and I will follow your lead to pack our suitcases for a month long trip to France.

    Thank you for your very good advice over the past weeks. Have a wonderful time on your trip.


  4. Over packing should be my middle name! We just came back from our daughter's wedding in Dallas and I didn't need everything I packed. With baggage fees as crazy as they are I will definitely keep this post nearby.

  5. I just finished packing for a trip to Moscow and St. Petersburg. I took pictures of each outfit I planned to wear and the days I would wear them. I alternate my pants and sweaters so this should be a super easy way for me to remember.

  6. You clearly are an expert at this! I struggle every time I pack; I either bring too much or too little. Nice job.

    เกม Candy Dreams ของทางค่าย Evoplay Slot เกมนี้มาในธีมลูกอมและขนมหวานสไตล์เดียวกับ Candy Crush
    แต่จะเน้นโทนสีพาสเทล ฟ้าอ่อน ชมพูอ่อน เหมือนขนมสายไหมและมาชเมลโล่ ให้ความรู้สึกหวานแหววและฟูนุ่มเบาสบาย สาว ๆ เห็นแล้วน่าจะชอบเกมนี้ไม่น้อย


I'm so delighted that you have visited my blog...
