How to pack for a weekend getaway

There’s always that feeling of hesitancy when you’re going away for a weekend, and don’t want to over pack, yet also don’t want to forget anything important. The majority of our getaways occur over long weekends, so by this point we’ve managed to figure out how to pack for short trips without going too crazy by under- or over-packing. We try to think realistically – if we’re going away for two nights, we bring 2 changes of clothes, etc. We only bring the minimal amounts of toiletries (depending on if we’re staying at a friend’s/relative’s house vs at a hotel) and anything extra that is needed (water bottles/pet needs/etc). Below, we’ve created a free, printable list for you to download in hopes of making your life a little bit easier when trying to plan for a weekend getaway!

As always, feel free to leave us a comment if we’ve forgotten something that you think is a MUST for a short getaway, and we’ll add it!

Happy traveling!
