Hi friends. Did you ever want a template of what to pack for any trip? I do! I LOVE templates. They just make life so much easier. Here is the packing template I use whenever I am going on a trip. Whether it’s Road Tripping, Hiking, or international trip, this list is my go-to. I remove any items I don’t need and I’m left with a list of things from essentials to just in case depending on the weather.


I am joyful. I have abundance. I have peace. 

Destination
Cities
Month/Dates
Duration

^I also fill in the above section. It helps me know how to plan for my outfits below and know what to expect weather-wise.

Outfits:

I love planning out outfits / making a capsule wardrobe for when I travel.
It helps me not to overpack.

  1. White Tee Shirt + Blue Jeans + Converse
  2. Top + Bottom + Shoes
  3. etc…

Bags:

After deciding on what outfits you want to bring the next thing is to pick what you want to pack them in. As well as a smaller bag to bring with you.

  • Small Shoulder Bag or a Bum Pack – For exploring your destination.
  • Back Pack – This is a very sturdy bag. I did a weekend camping trip with it and I had plenty of room left after packing all that I needed.
  • Travel Backpack – It has a huge capacity! Since it’s big I have to be very mindful of what I pack so I don’t overfill it.
  • Compression Cubes – Life saver and space saver.
  • Weekender – I packed for a 10 day trip with this bag #tinybutmighty (I will however say that it is heavy to lug around if you have a lot of transit to do.)
  • Collapsible Bag – Always great to bring and you can use it as a day pack.
