I’m sure you have heard of Pareto’s Rule. Let’s apply this to our things. Twenty percent of the things we hold on to, we truly love and actually utilize, while eighty percent goes untouched. A friend of mine was travelling to New York for a six day trip. Well, she was having trouble deciding what to wear. So she decided to FedEx ten of her coats to the hotel. You know, just in case. In her mind, she figured she would wear at least two coats a day-one in the morning and one at night. Does this sound familiar?
I couldn’t believe this when she told me. The story gets better, I asked how many of the ten coats that were FedEx did she actually wear. Now, let me mention it cost over $100 to have the coats shipped. Can you guess how many coats were worn?
She only wore TWO… Do you had trouble packing for a trip? I would recommend laying out your clothes for each day and really ask yourself if you will truly wear the outfits? Consider wearing a good pair of pants more than once and changing out your top. One coat but no more than two would be sufficient for a six day trip.
We would love to hear about your next trip.
Until next time…
