So how much crap did I drag with me and how?
I packed everything into two bags. One was almost like a giant purse, which I kept slung over my shoulder and would tuck under my airplane seat. The other was a medium size carry-on (that I never could carry on and ended up costing me a lot of money along the way). Here’s a list of what I packed.
In the giant purse:
teddy bear (no way I was leaving Ted behind!)
notebooks and notepads
In the larger purple bag:
one pair combat boots (I usually wore athletic shoes, so that made two pair total)
three pairs “unmentionables”
four pairs socks (one pair of hospital footies because I LOVE those)
two pairs jammy pants
three t shirts
three short sleeve tops
one long sleeve top
long sleeve workout shirt, sports bra, workout pants
3 pairs jeggings
1 pair yoga pants
two sleeveless tops (in case I ever wanted to get jazzy)
tampons (and yes, you can see that I packed a LOT in the picture below. We can handle it. We’re all adults here. Sort of. Maybe. I hope)
cosmetics bag filled with things like makeup, medications, lotions and potions and soaps and such
Note: I packed my electronics and important papers in the giant purse-thingy for a reason! I made sure I was never separated from that bag! More about how important that was in future posts, so stay tuned!
Looking at the list, it sounds like a lot! But when you look at it, it’s really not that much. I packed what i thought was the bare minimum, and I brought my absolute favorite clothing and undergarments so I would be happier to wear everything over and over again!
