Hello, my name’s Alannah and I’m an over-packer. It’s been 3 years since the last time I over-packed. Thankfully, this is a problem of the past for me. It took some negative experiences for me to change my packing habits. Several instances of suitcase rage. So what are the many advantages of packing light? Why is it better to not haul a ton of stuff that you don’t need around the world?
I want to share my bad packing experiences with you so that you don’t make the same mistakes. These are 11 times I regretted over-packing. They are situations that anyone could easily run into while traveling. I am sharing them with you in the hope that you will mend your over-packing ways and realize that sometimes, less is more.
