Ultimate Packing Guide

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. 


^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 for the destination I will in. It helps me not to overpack.


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 Fanny Pack – Walking around the city.
  • 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 am 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 was 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.
