Packing clothes for me is the easy part. Find a bunch of t-shirts, all the socks and boxers I own and one extra pair of jeans...because nobody really wears jeans only one day in a row unless they get dirty. But the dilemmas and perplexities for me come in when I have to start packing toiletries.
I am very partial to my Aquafresh. But how much of it do I need?? I have a partial tube...is that enough? Maybe I should use a new tube to make sure there is enough? I can't quite measure what is in the tube as compared to what I normally use times 20. How much I normally use isn't even measurable - that changes every single time.
Same dilemma on volume (pun intended) as I have with the toothpaste. But I also have accumulated several travel sized/hotel sized shampoos over the years. Do I take the travel shampoos? Should I take the bottle I just started? Do I buy a medium sized travel bottle and fill it up? How many travel shampoos? Can I combine several different brands of shampoos into one larger container? Would my hair turn green like on the Brady Bunch if I did combine shampoos?
Maybe I should just wear a hat...?
I bring a new one. Always. When I get back home, I finish off the one at home still, then revert to the partially used one.
