This post will serve as your very own genie in a bottle, granting your wish to become a packing guru. Master these tips and find out which one works the best for you. Make sure to share this 7-day trip packing list with your travel partner and make your life a little more exciting and a little less complicated.

Packing Tips for a One Week Trip

Before we head on to the checklist, let’s go over some tips that can make packing easy breezy for you! This is going to be quick, so let's start.

Tip #1: Find the Best Suitcase That β€˜Suits’ You

Step one before packing is deciding on your main luggage. Are you planning to bring a rolling suitcase or a backpack? It all depends on what kind of trip you are taking.

Are you flying or driving? You may want to take a carry on (if flying) to save the baggage claim annoyance. If you are driving, it’s not such an issue. Once you've decided on a bag, the next thing you want to do is ensure the bag’s warranty.

While traveling, your bag may experience a lot of thumps and bumps so it's not surprising to find a broken zipper, handle or wheel. Find a trusted luggage brand that promises high-quality products. After all, you want to get your money's worth.

βœ”οΈ Backpack - If you want a hassle (and hands) free getaway, you may find a travel backpack to be your new BFF. Opt for a bag that reduces the extra weight of wheels so you can walk with one hand for your phone (for selfies, of course) and the other for holding your drink (no, we're not gonna judge). If you know that you'll be carrying your bag around a lot, this kind of bag could be helpful, especially if you’ll be walking around cobbled or uneven streets.

βœ”οΈ Rolling Luggage - A 7-day trip is long enough to carry almost one-fourth of your closet and that thought alone is enough to make you feel exhausted. If you're worried about your back and you don't want to put too much pressure on your body, a four-wheeled suitcase may be the choice for you. Effortlessly roll your suitcase around, and save your back the stress.

Pro Tip: Be sure to carry a duffle bag with you for "just in case/emergency" moments. Bring out this baby when your suitcase is overweight at the airport, or you don't have enough space for those souvenirs you brought back for each family member.



Tip #2 - Plan Activities So You Know How to Pack

The first step to an organized suitcase is proper planning. Where are you exactly going? What activities are you going to do? Are you planning to visit different climates? These questions will help you come up with a list you need. Now, it's time to organize.

As much as you wanted this part to be easy, it will always be chaotic unless you commit to this traveling hack -- packing cube organizers. These travel cubes help to sort your items into categories, such as toiletries, hair accessories, sweater/jackets, pants, shirts/blouses, and more.

Place undergarments in the blue Small Cube, skincare essentials in the pink Extra Small Cube, shirts & blouses in the green Medium Cube, and jackets & jeans in the black Large Cube.

Even more awesome is that EzPacking products are transparent - so you can easily see what's inside every cube, and even without a vacuum sealer, your clothes are carefully compressed. The result? More space for other items.

Tip #3 - Pack Like the #GirlBoss You Are

Bring versatile and lightweight clothes to avoid overpacking or under packing. Roll up your garments inside this Starter Set to save space and reduce wrinkling. Go for a color scheme. Think black and white, or earthy colors like brown and tan, or pastel colors to keep it fun! Sticking to this scheme will help you pack light.

Tip #4 - Get Your Carry-On / Tote Bag Ready

Pack all your airplane essentials and go-to’s in your tote, purse, or backpack. Make sure your personal hygiene kit is in an accessible place. You’ll never know when you’ll need to disinfect a seat or a handle using an alcohol spray before sitting or touching them. Remember to sanitize your hands as often as possible as well.

Tip #5 - Secure Your Home

Whether it's a one-day escape or a 7-day trip, it's important to prepare your home before you leave. Closing up the house should be on your β€œ7-day vacation packing checklist” as the last vital step. Leave extra time for this, so that you’re not flying around the house right before your flight.

Things you should do before leaving the house:

β˜‘ Call the post office and ask them to hold your mail for the meantime

β˜‘ Set up a voice message or email Autoresponder (c'mon, leave your work for a little while!)

β˜‘ Pre-pay your utility bills

β˜‘ Unplug home appliances

β˜‘ Take out the trash

β˜‘ Empty the fridge (of food that will expire)

β˜‘ Close windows and lock all doors

β˜‘ Secure your valuables in your safe (or with family)

β˜‘ Leave your puppy / kitty with family, friends, or a pet hotel

β˜‘ Leave your house key & details of your itinerary with a trusted family member / friend (in case of emergencies)
