“Micro-Packing” for Traveling: 10 Best Ways to Travel Light

Do you LOVE to travel? Here is a list of the 10 Best Lightweight Travel Accessory "must haves" that allow me to travel efficiently, lightly, and easily.

Traveling is my “thing”.    When I am out exploring, I want to make EVERY second count! I don’t want to be held back by anything, and includes carrying HUGE heavy bags, filled with things I probably won’t even need. The more I travel, the more efficient I try to be with my packing and items I bring that are necessary. I finally got the “micro-packing” method down, and it makes traveling SO easy.  Gone are the days where I had to sit on my bag to compress it as I pull the zipper closed with all of my might ( all the while crossing my fingers together hoping the zipper doesn’t break).  Gone are the days when my bag was so heavy that I could barely lift it! Here’s how its done: “Micro-Packing” for Traveling: 10 Best Ways to Travel Light.  My latest trip was to Denmark, solo.  9 days, one medium-sized backpack, 23lbs…  I  had everything I needed and everything I wanted- without any added nonsense! IT CAN BE DONE!

How to Make a DIY Wall Mounted Beer Bottle Opener

I had to make gifts for 2 friends, so I decided to make them both a beer bottle opener.  I tailored each one to their style and their decor.  One friend is a beer LOVER- so naturally, I used a can of his favorite beer as the cap catcher.  The other one was for a friend who is more artistic, so I created the second one with blackboard paint and can be redecorated often.  Regardless, they were so easy to make and I think they turned out as great gifts!  (more…)
