This is the perfect topic for me as I am planning my packing for an upcoming trip right now. The difficulty is that I have such a varied itinerary. It's everything from farm in Ireland to black tie on QE2.

My usual approach is to make a chart, listing each day and what I will wear - like a seating chart. I figure out approximately what I'll be doing each day (travel, visiting relatives in Ireland, giving anniversary drinks party in London, theatre, walking the South Downs, etc.) and then I assign clothes for that day. I look it over and see what I can combine or what I've forgotten. Then I use this to make my packing list. It just seems more complicated with this trip which is almost a month long. When I figure it all out, I'll try to post it here. In the meantime, please keep posting as I've already gotten ideas from the lists here. Thanks!!!

i pack as little as possible! i'm very big on packing pieces that i can mix and match b/c i'm constantly changing clothes while on holiday. my philosophy is that it's easier to buy things like shampoo, toothpaste, soap, etc. once i get where i'm going than to try and bring them all along. and tolietries take up soo much space!

ski trips and cold climates are the worst for packing. i just hate to carry a bunch of stuff through an airport. i would love to be able to federal ex my belongings ahead.
