Sure that's an OK list.

A couple things I do differently. 1st off, NO wool!!! I'm allergic and that would be the end of my trip!!

2nd I find putting two molded plastic hangers into the bottom of the suitcase & using hotel shampoo for handwashing works better. Those blow-up hangers and powdered detergent don't work very well (been there tried that).

MSN has an article today on packing light which is the same general idea: http://guides.travel.msn.com/Guides/...5831&gt1=41000

I like what Diane Von Furstenburg said: "...if you can figure out your suitcase, you can figure out your life." I actually enjoy packing and the challenges of packing light so, I wonder how that reflects on how I live my life?

An awesome tip from this other MSN article is to USE BUTTONS to organize earrings and keep them paired together. I thought that was clever! (http://guides.travel.msn.com/Guides/...mentid=1001128)

My mom and I use small plastic zip bags (saved from the extra button you get with clothing) to put earrings and necklaces in. Keeps earring paired together and everything from getting tangled up.
