KonMari Packing Made Easy

Continuing with the travel theme, I wanted to expand on how journeying through the KonMari Method equates to traveling more efficiently. Learning to focus on what brings you joy and how to streamline organization, naturally transfers or equates to packing in the same fashion.

In my own experience of packing for the first time after completing the KonMari Method, I didn't anticipate that there would be a notable difference. It was only when I realized that everything I set aside for a five day trip fit into an average size carry-on bag (with room to spare) that I realized I'll never travel the same again... and that's a very good thing!

When you have a wardrobe that you enjoy wearing, it is easier to choose key pieces that will lend themselves best to the nature of your trip. This avoids bringing clothing "just incase" and ultimately means you can travel lighter. The same is true for accessories, footwear and toiletries.

Confidently going away knowing you have everything you need, but also without having to bring half your belongings to obtain this is freeing! I have found that investing in organizational aids and versatile clothing also proves very helpful when it comes time to pack, but equally while you are away. Below are some products that I have used with great success.
