Packing and Re-Packing

I love to travel, but the packing makes me crazy! Through the years I have had some success in reducing my luggage. I limit myself to all black and white clothing, and only 2 pairs of shoes: athletic and dressy. I wear on the plane/train boots and my warm coat in the winter and driving mocs and light jacket in the summer. I have some nifty clear plastic zipper bags from (Flight 001 Clear Bag Trio – EXCLUSIVE $28.99 20% Off This Item! Use Code: RECESS). One for my electronics and one for cosmetics. These are always filled and ready to go. Ditto for the hanging sundries bag with sunscreen, medicine, etc.

A couple weeks ago, I spent some time in Monterosso al Mare, one of the five towns in Cinque Terre. Days at the beach, evenings walking along the promenade, and yummy seafood!

Will be in Seattle for the summer, where it is cool and sunny! Chia and I enjoy sitting on our deck overlooking Portage Bay, and planning what to pack to take back to Florence for the fall shopping season.

Just bought a new packing shelf system from this site: It looks like a great idea, and I will let you if I like it! You can look at it here:
