Tip #57 - Over Packing: Stop The Insanity!
How many times have you returned from a trip with items you never wore? Rule number one of packing light is to only bring clothes in one color family- that way everything works together. Follow this rule: it doesn't match, it doesn't go. And when it comes to shoes, you must be ruthless: one pair for walking, one pair for nicer occasions. Period. Vacation is not the time to be a fashion plate. Comfort is key and one of the easiest ways to ruin your vacation is to pack too much stuff and have to lug a giant suitcase everywhere you go. Don't do it!
