hey all,
iv been trying to deal with this dilemma myself but i think i need some suggestions/advice? how on earth can you tell a junkie(only clothes & shoes thats my drug Big Grin) to take half their usual fix?? im lost, dont wanna overpack but dont wanna be left without my favorite or something i mite possibly need/want! whats a girl to do!! I done an example list and whoa its heaps, i cant even get my shoes down to less than 5 pairs(and thats a big effort 4 me!)
what have all you other fashion addicts out there done! i know im going to shop but its just to hard to cut down! thanks guys!!

    What I did last year was I selected everything I wanted to pack — lined it up.. then put half of it back. Trust me, it was really hard… but I didn’t miss the items I didn’t have. Also, you might want to get some Travel Space Bags — force yourself not to use them at the start of the trip, but they are great if you want to buy some clothes on the trip and then condense everything down.

    oh thats a great ides with the space travel bags i will definatly invest in one of those, that way i can buy heaps of stuff(especially since im stopping at dubai for 3 days of shopping on my way home) this may sound really dumb and make me look like a bimbo but would a travel space bag when it compacts stuff make it weigh less??

    No,i don’t think space bags make things weigh less…just condences your gear and gives you more packing space

    I also suffer form clothing addiction!!!! What I did, was I brought more tops and shoes than bottoms. I brought one dark pair of jeans, and one light. Two pairs of bermuda shorts and 3 dreeses. The rest were shoes, shirts, sweaters and blouses. I wore the same bottoms alot and hand washed them in the hotels but my outfits always looked different because of my tops (a differen one for everyday!!!) and my accersories. Thats my advice Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> Have Fun!!!

    just prepare to reuse an outfit. Pick your favorite 7 and then just double up. Everyone will understand cause everyone will be in the same boat. I’m a clothes junkie too and it was hard, but just pack as much as will fit with a little extra room for shopping. Good luck!

    Don’t you need to use a vacuum to condense the space bags?????

    so on the topic of packing light…. can we still bring or should you bring a blow dryer and or a straightner or curling iron, b/c i certainly need at least one of those items!
