A Tip for Packing Efficiency

There are two types of travelers: efficient packers and over-packers.

The former doesn’t need our advice. The latter doesn’t want it.

However, we can’t restrain ourselves from passing along our most important tip for packing efficiency.

Resolve to make do with two pairs of shoes: one to wear and one to pack.

Once you commit to those two pairs, you’ll be amazed how easy it is to build your attire around them. Well-thought out shoe choices will make your color scheme and wardrobe selection a snap, and mitigate the risk of over-packing.

To paraphrase Hudson + Bleecker, a journey of a thousand miles begins with the right pair of shoes.

Happy trails!
