One Week Trip Packing List

One Week Trip Packing List

Ever start planning a trip and get overwhelmed at the thought of what to bring. I break it down for you as to what to pack depending on your trip.

Normal 7 Day Trip
This is a typical trip where you may or may not have access to laundry facilities. You want enough options so you can change your mind about outfits once you get there.

  • 5 tops
  • 2 dresses
  • 1 pair of pants
  • 1 long skirt
  • 1 causal shoe
  • 1 pair of flip flops
  • 1 dressy shoe

Minimal 7 Day Trip
I’m very bad at minimal packing but I’m getting better.

  • 4 tops
  • 1 pant
  • 1 long skirt
  • 1 casual shoe
  • 1 pair of flip flops

I’ve been using the same packing list since 2005, with a few adjustments. Here are a few things I like to bring that you might not have thought of:

  • Plastic bags for dirty laundry and to line trash bins.
  • An empty water bottle you can fill once you past airport security.
  • Travel packs of tissues in case you encounter bathrooms without toilet paper.
  • Mini soap sheets for bathrooms without soap.
  • Umbrella
  • Travel baby powder to keep you fresh throughout hot sticky days.
  • Compression socks for long flights.
  • A pen to fill out customs forms.
