Packing for a big vacation can often be stressful. How am I possibly going to fit 10 outfits, multiple shoes, accessories, makeup, hair products, and toiletries all in one suitcase? And of course, once it’s packed all I can think about is what I forgot to put in there.

Here are my tips and tricks to make packing and traveling a breeze!
