When packing for a trip, lay out all your belongings on your bed or the floor and organize by category (day clothing, beach ware, toiletries) and activity (scuba diving, cycling). Make sure you have your charges, headphones, toiletries (including earplugs and an eye mask if you are a light sleeper, like me). You can find all my favorite products in the Travel Store!

When you need to pack a lot of products, such as on long trips, compression sacs can be very useful. Also stick to one color theme so you don't need to pack 4 pairs of shoes to match each outfit!
