You guys – I’m going to Scandinavia! More (much more!) to follow, but I wanted to share this nifty little find with you all ASAP.the laundress fabric fresh

I have always been a chronic overpacker – that person who tosses “just one more” of every item into her suitcase. You know, “just in case”.

It’s definitely gotten better since I embraced the capsule wardrobe last year, but this is the first time I’m going away for more than 2 or 3 days, and without access to a washer/dryer.

Since most of my trips involve long days of walking around from dawn till dusk, I really appreciate having a fresh set of clothes each morning. When I came across this item from The Laundress I knew I had to give it a try.

I’ve been using it at home for the last week or so and it is fabulous – it literally “freshens” up my blouses and tees without: a) masking odors, or b) clashing with my fragrance. It’s kind of like what dry shampoo does for your hair. This will definitely ease my anxiety about packing less.

I don’t think I’m at the “one-carry-on-and-that’s-it” stage of packing and travel, but it’s is a start.

And tell me – PLEASE! – what are your strategies for packing as little as possible when you travel? Please share!

    We have a house rule, if it can’t fit in your carry on, it doesn’t go. We have travelled successfully to Europe for more than 10 days with just a rollerboards. Like your capsule wardrobe, the trick is to make sure every thing you put in your bag goes with at least 2 other things.
