Manage Your Preparation Time:
- Make lists of things you think might need, things to leave at home, and things you definitely need.
- Start packing at least one week before you leave. Give yourself time to remember anything you should bring before you actually leave.
- I highly advise everyone to lie out everything you intend on bringing before you pack it in bags. Look at what you have and always question whether you should bring it or leave it home.
- Don’t leave shopping and packing for the last minute.
