How to pack your bag in 5 “easy” steps

This is a packing guide for going on an all-in summer holiday for 2 weeks.

I hate packing to go on a holiday. It gives me stress because I hate a limited wardrobe.
Even when I’d follow my own rules I often do not have the dress with me that I would like to wear or shoes or…

Anyway, never pack your bags the night before you leave on a summer holiday (guilty as hell!), you will forget (important) things. Try to pack a week in advance, 1 category at a time/a day.

Where are you going? What will you be doing? Take your suitcase, hand luggage if needed and decide which bag you want to take with you on the plane. Open them up in the middle of your living room or wherever suits you best. Start with the essentials 1st because you do NOT want to forget those most used items and important documents.
