Tinkerbell

When do you start packing

45 posts in this topic

About 3 weeks before we go on a cruise if I happen to go into our spare bedroom I find that my husband has decorated the room with a dress suit, dress shirts, numerous pairs of trousers and shirts. Not to mention the shoes. He takes size 11 and loves to have a pair to match each colour trousers and these are lined up ready for packing. When he realises that I've seen he always says that he knows he can't take everything but he's put them there "just in case".

When do others start packing?

I pack the night before, if I do it before that I end up unpacking and packing that many times because I feel like I have forgotten something. So I make a list and then pack last minute.

I gather all toiletries together about a week before to check what I need to buy & sort clothes about 3 days before. Tinkerbell, my husband takes size 12 shoes so I limit him to 2 pairs plus sandals as they fill half a case on their own & have to stuff socks etc inside them.

Terminator I am the butler. By the way do you give yours the sack if he/she forgots to pack something?

Sack?...that's far too nice and sends out the wrong signal.

You don't want to know what the punishment can be but suffice to say not much has ever been forgotten so it must be working..

I'm terrible for this. Always one to leave things to the last minute. My wife likes to think she's different and plans ahead but she's still right there with me the night before panicking that we've not got everything we need.

Rita handles all the packing. She is a pro! She starts accumulating about 1 month before and packs the bags about 1 week before we leave.

The night before :( I say I am going to be more prepared every time but still leave it until the last moment I never learn.

Neither do I. I'm always running and racing around the day before having left myself so much to do. You'd think by now I'd know better.

It always ends up being the night before! I always tell myself that I'll be more organised next time but I still leave it until the last minute.

I don't start packing too early - I will go through all my holiday clothes though about a week or so before to see what i already have and keep them to one side. Pack the day before!
