Leaving, on a jet plane…

The art of packing light

I just returned from a lovely holiday where I did nothing but hang out with my family, sharing meals, conversation, competitive Scrabble games, and binge watching TV (I’m looking at you S4 The Great British Baking Show).

When I purchased my flights I had not realized that the return portion was with a carrier that charged for the ticket AND for the seat, overhead bin, checked baggage and in flight snacks.  Hell, I was ready to bring along a roll of toilet paper in case they charged for using the loo.

Inspired by Project 333 and 33 articles of clothing = 25,176 different outfits (not to mention my ‘everything has an up-charge’ flight’) I packed a super light carry-on with my clothes and a tote bag with my books, laptop, and drawing tablet.  Surprisingly, I had plenty of outfit options – and relaxing activities – to get me through the week.

I am intrigued by Project 33 and think I am going to give it a try once fall arrives.  How about you?  Could you survive with only 33 items (including clothing, accessories, jewelry, outerwear and shoes)?  Let me know if you want to try along with me…
