Sunday, I’m leaving for a Disney Cruise to the Bahamas!
It’s time to start packing. Plus, I’ve already had one pre-cruise nightmare where I forgot my bathing suit.
When I embark on packing, I start with doing laundry. This way, I have a full inventory to choose from. Next, I pack by laying out my clothes on my bed. This helps me not forget anything and see what I’m packing.
|I like to lay out everything on my bed so I can get a since of how much I’m bringing|
I put the stuff I want to keep in my backpack, like books, iPad, camera, etc in the corner of my bed. I also put the outfit I’m wearing on the plane in a different area.
|I save space and keep my shoes from getting crushed by stuffing clothing inside them.|
|I like to lay out my shorts beneath my shirts so I can make sure they coordinate|
When I was little, before school, my mom helped me set out a “Little Deborah” on the floor so I’d know what I was wearing the next day. When packing, I pretty much fill my bed with 5 Little Deborahs so I can make sure I’m packing shorts, tops, bras underwear, shoes and socks for each day.
|My base layer is made of shorts, a cardigan and bathing suits|
|Shoes went on the top layer, facing the outside of suitcase|
|I wear my heaviest clothes onto the plane and set them in a different bag so I can easily get to them.|
Packing list for the cruise:
- Shorts, jean shorts and workout shorts
- Tops, t-shirts and tank tops
- Variety of shoes
- Bag for the beach
- Face wash
