By the time this post goes up, I will be somewhere in the Caribbean! I can. not. wait.
So, for the next part of my travel organization series, I wanted to share with you what I pack in my suitcase and how I keep it organized.
First off, the suitcase we’re using for this trip is the American Tourister Astronolite 25″ Expandable Upright. I used to have such a problem keeping my luggage under the 50 lb limit no matter how light I tried to pack. I could never understand it. Then, I thought to weigh our luggage empty. I was surprised about how heavy it actually was without anything in it! When I saw this luggage was only 5.9 lbs, I knew it was worth a try. I’m hoping this luggage really holds up because it’s exactly what I’ve been looking for!

Here’s a photo of the inside all packed up.
Inside this area, I have my toiletry and make up cases from my Lori Greiner travel organizers that I mentioned in my Travel Must Haves post.
Also on the top layer is where I have my water shoes and sandals…
On the next layer down, I have my new Eagle Creek packing envelope that is holding a huge majority of the clothing I’m taking! I really couldn’t believe how much I could fit in it!
Here it is all packed up…
And, here is a picture of the envelope opened up. It holds 1 pair of regular jeans, 1 pair of cropped jeans, 1 pair of jean shorts, 1 pair of dressy capris, 3 dresses (1 maxi and 2 knee length), 1 swimsuit cover up, 3 tank tops, 2 short sleeve tops, and 2 nicer tops. Can you believe it?!
Also on this layer is a slim eBags packing cube with my bathing suits in it.
And a small pouch that I’ve put in anything that I want to take to the beach with us… sunscreen, hand sanitizer, bug spray, deodorant wipes….
And lastly, inside the zippered pocket I have my visor, wet swimsuit pouch, and my makeup brushes. Oh yeah, my flip flops are in there too — not sure why they aren’t in the picture.
On the outside is a large pouch that I’ve got two small size eBags packing cubes.
The green packing cube is holding my pajamas, and the pink packing cube is holding my undergarments.
The best part of all? My suitcase only weighs 36 lbs!!!!! Success!!!
I hope you all have a great week! I know I will!! 🙂
