When packing for a vacation are you more low-maintenance ("I guess i'll take some clothes. Maybe sun screen.") or high-maintenance ("I'll take this Philip's screwdriver just in case i need to fix my car on my own.")?
I start making a very specific list of everything I'm going to pack about a week or two before I leave. I refine it for a while before I start actually packing. And I always overpack.
I take exactly what I need, nothing more, sometimes less. If I need something, I'll buy it.
I bring way more clothes than I need.
I'm a overpacker. Mom taught me to pack & her theory of packing was much like the Boy Scout motto...Be prepared.
Those gender pies !
More low maintenance, but as a mechanic, that screwdriver is likely somewhere in that car, along with a few other tools. Just because I hate being stranded on the side of a road for a simple fix.
Depends on the kind of vacation. To my mom's? High. I mean, what if we want to play some games while we're there? Or go to Lake Crescent? Or...? But if it's a REAL trip, low. The lower the better. Instead of more clothes, I pack laundry soap.
I keep it low, but I always have my essentials in my back pack. So I only take my backpack, but it has tools. So....blue?
Low. My "vacations" usually consist of visiting friends. If I need something I didn't bring, either I borrow it from them, & buy it & leave it with them. Doesn't work so well for clothes, although I've borrowed jackets.
High maintenance 💁🏼
Better safe than sorry
Same here but that's only because I have the boy. I was a super low maintenance packer pre-child 😁
I think a lot of it has to do with my anxiety( or at least I'll blame it on that 😂)
I'll think, well what if it rains? What if it's really hot? What if I pee myself? What if it snows? What if I spill food? What if I want to look hot? Ect.
I'm really only bad if it's a trip longer than 4 days. If it's camping, then I really don't care. Besides medicine and shît
I always pack for the "what if I pee myself" thanks child birth 😒
See, I have no good reasons! 😭
Sometimes I just laugh really hard 😂😂
I feel like that's a good enough reason! 😂😂
Reading this comment thread made me pee myself laughing. Thanks Obama.
Somewhere in the middle. I pack low maintenance but I pack a LOT. Two day vacation? I'll probably need 6-7 shirts
I overpack every time. :(
I'm lucky if i pack clothes lol.
I'm on the low end. My wife is on the high end.
