I had to pack two days early because of the commitments I have for the next two evenings.  My room was littered with all of the items that needed to go into this one bag, but I got everything in with room for the presents I’ll need to bring back from my trip.

My daughter Kate is an absolute wizard with packing.  She can get more things scrunched into a tiny bag than you would think possible!  She and her husband went for a 2-week honeymoon in Greece with nothing more than a small backpack each.  Amazing……  I’ve gotten much better at packing, but I’ll never be that good!
