I pack more than I need, because sometimes you want things that you really don't need when you're away from home.
Last weekend, Mom, Boo and I went to the desert. Both Mom and Boo packed very light. Mom used my lotion, my face and hair products, and pantiliners. For a while there I thought my spare panties would be used as well.
I just say, pack a larger bag and bring everything you need and then some.
PS: Pkin needed my hairbrush a few nights ago when we were away overnight.
They all need to lay off my roller bag and toiletries kit!
