Most there did not want to hear the basic truth: pack less. Do laundry. You donít need 6 pairs of shoes to see Paris. Iím related to several chronic overpackers, one of which expressed horror at the thought of seeing Europe with one carry on suitcase. And that was before I pointed out I donít pack a curling iron and full makeup because why.

i usually roll, and I can fit a lot more that way. But Iím using cubes this trip, and there are definitely benefits. It takes so much less time to pack and unpack.

no, not one of janisís courses. I wouldnít know how to find her






Oh! I think any packing course is useful for inexperienced travelers, and if I knew where janis did her classes, Iíd probably attend for new ideas. Iíve always liked shopping, so I had a lot of practice before I even knew there was such a thing as a class. Itís like a puzzle, a fun challenge, for me.

i find the cubes involve less digging, and easier organization of laundry. I donít unpack themóI just unzip to pull out the piece I want. I agree about less flexibility, and if I end up shopping, Iíll probably roll.
