Pack outside your bag

Before you actually pack your suitcase, pile everything you plan to bring on your bed or dresser. This is your opportunity to eye your clothes and cull a few more items. If you pack directly into your suitcase, you'll be tempted to throw in a few extra items (trust us, you will). Once you've made the final edit, pack only what's in front of you. If you've followed our advice, your suitcase should now be a lean, mean, traveling machine: Happy travels!

    Funny. Never thought that to be true, but know it happens everytime we even go away for the weekend. Now I know how to pare things down!
