“Just pack one suitcase.”
My heart dropped into my stomach.
Did he really say ONE suitcase???
“I’m sorry but did you just say ONE suitcase?” I almost screamed.
“Umhmm.” He turned around to look at me with a smirk.
The devilish smile!
I was never the ONE suitcase type of person. Always had to pay money for excess at the airports for either an extra bag or for additional weight in my bags. But one suitcase only? And that too of 23 kgs only? I was in disbelieve.
For the past two days, I’ve been just thinking of what I need to take. Trying to minimize things to must-haves, absolutely need this, and have-to-have……I’m cutting the list shorter and shorter but everything I have-to-have during the travel and at the destination won’t fit in my one suitcase.
I mean seriously. I need everything!!! My casual handbags, fancy clutches, my camera bag, makeup bags, jewelry boxes, several pairs of flats, heels, sneaker, both eastern & western clothes, and not to mention the gifts. What should I leave?
Packing was never my cup of tea. As much as I like traveling, I never enjoyed packing suitcases because I always know I would have to pay extra luggage anyways.
But not this time!!! I’m challenging my own self to be a minimalist and get courageous enough to start packing the suitcase.
Wish me luck for I am on a mission to pack that ONE suitcase that has been keeping me up at nights. I pray to pack it Carefully. To pack it Smartly. To cut down my must-haves to 23 KGs. Without regrets. Eeekkkkk…
