Being a working women means that you might have to travel a lot, whether within the country or abroad as well. Sometimes, you might not be given time or prior notice when you have to go for trips and you will have to pack immediately. Thus, your packing needs to be efficient and time saving. Also, you need to travel light for only a 2-3 days trip.
Here are some hacks which will help you be well organized and professional for traveling:
Separate, smaller bag for laptop
A business trip means that you will have to carry your laptop with you. It is always better that you keep the laptop and its accessories in separate smaller bags because you don’t always want to carry your big bags or carry-on bag when you go out.
Prevent smelly clothes
If you have a separate bag for dirty clothes and you don’t have time to give it to wash to the hotel laundry services, and then keep the hotel bar of soap inside the laundry bag. This will prevent it from smelling throughout the rest of your trip.
Use straws for keeping jewellery
You can use small pill containers to store your jewellery, like earrings. If you are carrying jewellery like necklaces or bracelets then use straws to keep them. This will prevent them from becoming tangled and messy. Just put one end of the bracelet or necklace through the straw and then close it with the other end.
Color scheme your clothes
Always pack clothes according to a particular color scheme. If you are going with dark colors, then pack clothes with shades of brown, black, grey and white in them. This will help you mix and match according to your convenience and you won’t have to carry separate outfits every time. You can add jazz or color using scarves and jewellery.
Have a mini travel bag ready
Always have a separate small toiletry bag and makeup bag ready. This will be very handy and you won’t go crazy trying to pack what you need the night before you depart. Put small, travel sized items in these bags like small containers of shampoo, conditioner, moisturizer, etc.
