Well the time has finally come and we are on our way to Italy! As anyone who has seen me in the past 3 months knows, all I have done is talk about my impending trip. For this trip, I was determined to be a good packer and while I did not make a list (which would have been a good idea), I did decide to organize all of my clothes in those little pouches from the Container Store. After rave reviews from family, friends and then the post on Mission Closet I decided I needed to get some packing supplies, boy did it make a difference. It saved me TONS of space and allowed me to keep all of my items super organized! I have a feeling that extra space will be filled up on my way home with new goodies. Oh well, so much for packing lite.
