Travel tip: What to pack for the weekend

Frequent traveler or not, there are just some stuff we packed that we don't actually use.  And if you're like me, I tend to over-pack. These scenarios are all to familiar for Overseas workers. And if you're unlucky enough to pack too heavy, you get ridiculously charged for overweight baggage.  Mind you, they charge per kilo / per pound, not per bag in excess.

Now, whenever I get invited for an overnight swimming party or out-of-town adventure, I still over-pack.  I have managed however, to keep everything in just one bulky bag.  

According to Travelfashiongirl, here are some packing tips you can use for a weekend getaway.

It doesn't have to be exactly as the picture above, but at least the concept is there.  You can customize or change it to suit the occasion.  And if it's for swimming, you also have to put in your bathing suit there. 
For men, the 3tops + 2 bottoms + 1 suit (I guess) applies.  It doesn't necessarily have to be extravagant.  And these go for spring.  Take note of the shoes... it's essential.

Other essential items that you can pack and in miniatures (at least 100ml) are:
  • toiletries (includes shampoo, conditioner, soaps, toothbrush, toothpaste, etc.)
  • medicines or first aid kits
  • make-up
  • moisturizers and creams (shaving creams)
  • lotions
  • hair dryer, razors
  • sewing kits or pins (optional)
  • plastic bags, for laundry
  • DO NOT FORGET:  socks (if applicable) and underwear
When your stuff is packed properly, it is easy to manage.  You know what you brought and what is missing.  It doesn't take too much space and once unpacked, it is easy to pack again.  It is also less worry.
