Don’t overpack. My most popular packing list makes it possible to pack everything you need for your next trip in under half an hour. It doesn’t matter if you need a packing list for Disneyland or a packing list for International Travel, my versatile 6 pieces packing list will help you never overpack again. The biggest mistake I see women make when they pack is packing for each day or by the events they have planned. Packing a capsule wardrobe of versatile mix-and-match pieces gives you more outfits than you’ll need, even if your itinerary or the weather change.

PACKING LIST FOR DISNEYLAND
