Hacks Tips and Tricks for an Awesome Road Trip ...

Neecey

I always smile a little when I read articles about road trips that tell you to just throw some clothes in a car and hit the highway. It sounds so romantic and freeing but in reality, flying (well, driving) by the seat of your pants might not result in the great road trip you hoped for. Like some of the best things in life, a great road trip deserves planning. And there are also some really helpful tips and tricks and road trip hacks you should know.

Pack for 2 Weeks with Just 13 Items of Clothing

***

Traveling with a limited wardrobe can be daunting, but it doesn't have to be. With a bit of planning and creativity, you can pack for two weeks with just 13 items of clothing.

Start by selecting the 13 items that you will bring. Choose items that are versatile and can be mixed and matched to create different looks. Think of items like a denim jacket, a few t-shirts, a pair of jeans, and a dress. Choose items that are comfortable and appropriate for the climate you will be traveling in.

When packing, roll your clothes instead of folding them. Rolling your clothes will help you fit more items into your suitcase while also reducing wrinkles. You can also use packing cubes to organize your clothes and keep them from becoming a jumbled mess.

Pack a few accessories to help you switch up your look. Scarves, hats, and jewelry can all be used to create different outfits with the same items. You can also bring a few items to wear in the evening, such as a dressy blouse or a pair of dressy pants.
