    You Are a Last-Second Lightweight Packer
    You prefer spontaneity over careful planning -- and your packing style is no exception. You're a bit of a fatalist; you feel that if you're going to forget to pack something, then you're going to forget to pack something, and there's not much you can do about it. You like to travel light, thereby avoiding airline baggage fees, pulled arm muscles and exhaustion. You've probably headed out the door with a few things left behind that you wish you had packed, but you never let it ruin your trip.

    When it comes to packing, less is more. But a bit of planning could make your trip go more smoothly. We recommend the following resources for your packing personality:

    Here's mine, and its me to a T....

    You Are a Systematic Suitcase Stuffer
    Your motto: always be prepared. You probably write long lists of everything that could come in handy on the road, and you add more and more items to the list as your departure date nears. You have rarely, if ever, forgotten to pack something important -- in fact, your travel companions regularly ask to borrow things that they've forgotten to pack. But you also tend to carry a fat, weighty suitcase and you may have been subjected to extra checked-bag fees while flying.

    Your tendency to plan ahead is a great packing strategy. Learn to lighten your load in order to save money on baggage fees (and save room for some souvenirs!). We recommend the following resources for your packing personality:

    I am a lightweight packer and I never pack until the day/night before but....I do always make lists so I never forget anything so the last line doesn't fit me.

    I am learning. Andrea has given me some good "tips".

    For 12 nights with three large suitcases we were severly underweight in June. BUT we knew we would have extra weight coming home for Amstel Brights. We also came home with more souvenirs than usual.

    For 10 nights in December I am still up in the air. Definitely only one pair of shorts and top. No plans for excursions, just beach time, so no need for day wear except bathing suits and coverups.

    Our biggest issue is really the "weight". Dh reads on average one book per day and the weight really adds up, even with soft covered ...Wish our library had iPod compatible audio books.
