Is there such term as "strategic packing"? Probably... although I might have given it a totally new meaning just about now.
I am packing for our trip to Lima coming up shortly. Due to previous foul experiences with airlines we are not going to mention, I have come up with a new way of packing. In the past, when we've traveled, Norm has "his" bag and I have "mine". Fortunately we are taking a total of 2 suitcases again this time.
It all started with my bathing suits. I am taking two. So, "just in case one bag doesn't make it" I packed one suit in each bag! Everything snowballed from there. I started packing dresses in one and shirts and skirts (that match) in the other one. Some underwears (sorry, but it's part of reality and packing) in one suitcase and some in the other one.
So there you have it: Strategic Packing. How exciting!! Now I know that even if one bag doesn't make it, I won't be stranded for a week waiting my clothes to arrive (part of foul experience with airline we are not going to mention).
