things I hate: packing

I absolutely despise packing. Whenever we are heading somewhere I dread the packing. I'd much rather unpack a million times than pack. My reasoning being that when you unpack you know everything has to be put away. When you pack you have to decide what you want to bring.

For me, deciding what to bring on a trip is torture. I have a very back case of the what-ifs. What if it's cold? What if it's hot? What if it rains? What if we go somewhere nice? What if I want to work out? What if I spill something on myself? What if...?

I've made a list of things I want to pack for our beach trip {which I should be doing right now} but I'm sure by the time I'm finished I will have packed a month's worth of clothes for a one week beach trip that I will most likely spend 98% of my time in a bathing suit and cover up anyway.


  1. I too am not so hot when it comes to packing- I bring way too much and tend to not wear 90% of any of it. I like unpacking though because everything has a specific home.

  2. I just pack it all, then sit on the suitcase to make it fit, then put the overflow in my husband's bag. ( : Good luck and enjoy the beach!
