Remember that time I bought a 38 liter carry-on backpack right before my trip to the Azores? In the year since that purchase I’ve been experimenting with carry-on packing. And that’s been an interesting experience, especially given that I am very much not a minimalist (if you need a reminder of that, let me direct you to that photo of my desk!).
It’s still very much an experiment in progress, but what I’ve found is that carry-on packing is not about the stuff. Well, it is about the stuff, but it’s much more about a mindset. And about packing cubes! (That link is an Amazon affiliate link to the set I bought last year because they’re seriously life-changing.)
I’ve been meaning to write a post about it for ages, but when Britt from Tiny Ambitions put out a call for guest posts while she was on vacation, I jumped at the opportunity. I LOVE her blog and her focus on simple living—I’m trying to incorporate much of that into my own life—and I knew this was the post I wanted to write for her (and thanks again, Britt, for letting me!).
