Packing and Such

Thanks to the snow storm we are experiencing I have been trapped in the house because really, who wants to drive when the roads look like this????!!

After watching way too many reruns of Law and Order on TV I got bored and decided to start strategizing on packing. Prior to moving from my old apartment I had decided to get rid of a lot of my stuff because I wanted my move to be stress free.

For some reason I just don't like having too much stuff so I always ensure that my wardrobe is small. Whenever I buy new clothes I end up donating my old ones just because I don't want to accumulate stuff plus I do get bored very easily with my old clothes after a while.

These are the clothes I have now and I still need to give away some, considering I will be traveling with only one backpack and a carry on. I have to be really creative with packing.

PS: My winter stuff is not included here. I tend to keep the bulky coats separate from my lighter clothes.

These are the shoes I currently have since I donated a lot when I was moving from my old apartment, my winter boots are clearly not included here. Since shoes tend to be bulky I am thinking I may have to make do with 3 pairs for my trip but I have yet to decide which 3 will make the cut.

I hate packing so even though the stuff I have doesn't appear to be much, I am not looking forward to the task. Hopefully the packing cubes I bought will help keep everything organized and compact.

Keep in mind I also have to include toiletries and some personal effects..........hmmm? anyway, I still have about 2 weeks left before my trip so why am I even stressing about packing now? I will save it for the last week.
