Holiday Packing
I start packing about a week ahead lay it all out on dining room table and add to it as I remember all those necessities that I left off my very long list.

Always take far too much

About a third unworn

Only take small shower gel, shampoo etc so mostly leave the dregs behind but if it was expensive bring it home, actually that is never as I don't buy expensive toiletries.

This thread spooked me as i was just thinking about what I pack in a flight bag and was about to start a thread on it.

I pack the night before but I mentally start packing a week or so beforehand.

I take as much as I can fit into a suitcase :nerd:

Not much comes home unword except the emergency warm stuff that I havent needed.

I take miniature bottles of toiletries and dump them.

I always leave bit of space in Cocker's suitcase though, for my shopping :pimp:

Holiday Packing
I start thinking about holiday clothes about 2 months before i actually go anywhere. I buy a few items a week, and i also start a list of things from Boots like sun tan oil etc ...

A few weeks before i ask Mr.B to sort out what he wants to take - and i will wash everything and iron it all. I will then leave it on the spare room bed so he wont wear any thing.

A week or so before i start thinking underwear. Everything time i wash a decent pair of knickers - they are put in the spare room so i dont wear them again before the holiday. By the time the holiday actually comes im normally wearing holey thread bare knickers.

The night before i actually pack the case. I dont shut the case though so the clothes dont get too screwed up.

Oh - and i mix and match our clothes. We have a suitcase each, but half our clothes go in one and half in the other. That way, if a suitcase gets mislaid we will always have something to wear.

I'm not perfect, but im so close it scares me

How far ahead do you pack to go away?
I start to pack a week ahead so I can check I have all I need and have time to buy anything I am short of or wash any clothing I need for the trip.
How much do you take with you?
Basically just enough for a week...plus any specific gear I may need for the environment I am heading into and what I'll be getting up to once there. I am very minimalist and am happy to wash bits in a sink if need be.
How much comes home unworn?
None of it.
Do you bring toiletries half used home or dump them?
I have small body shop bottles which I refill each trip with liquid soap and shampoo...this can last me up to a month of travelling. I buy sun block once I have arrived or use another small body shop bottle if I know I am only going to need a small amount. Toothpaste is always in the form of the pebble shaped Thermapaste stuff as it is a better container for travel...I never take a tube as they are inclinde to squish and leak!
