No Stress Packing and Way to Go Wednesday

Stress Free Vacay
Happy Hump Day everyone. It's one of those weeks where I'm a day off. It feels like Thursday. I think I'm just eager to get to the weekend because we'll be headed to the beach! That reminds me, I need to pack.

Funny how I freak out about packing for almost every trip except this annual trip to Florida. There's not really much you need for the beach other than towels, bathing suits and a few books right? I used to pack outfits for each day (day and night). Then I began to realize how rarely I wore even 1/3 of what I was carting along with me.

This vacation isn't about getting out and sight-seeing around a city. We don't go out to eat. At best, we might venture to the outlet mall, but that's only if it's a rainy day and we're somehow bored. We will visit with some friends who live there now. So, that makes packing so much easier. Just a few outfits, lounge clothes, bikinis, oh and running attire.

Luckily the condo does have a washer/dryer in the unit so that means I don't have to pack as many bulky beach towels or as many workout clothes. Not that I enjoy washing clothes on vacation of course, but it sure cuts down on the amount of items you have to bring along.

Are there some trips that you don't sweat the packing because you ave it down pat? Do you tend to take one trip to the same place yearly or do you always switch it up?

Way to Go Wednesday
