My name is Sharon and I am a chronic over-packer.
If it’s just a couple of days, I can usually keep myself in check. I mean, when Joe was on a business trip and I surprised him by showing up at his hotel and staying for 3 nights, I managed to pack everything into this suitcase, which fit under the seat in front of me.
But if I’m using a full-sized suitcase, and a personal bag AND a carry-on? I bring everything because, well, you just never know, do you? I mean, I see people who manage to go to Europe for a year with nothing more than a knapsack the size of the plastic bags you get at the supermarket. And then here I am…
But I know there are over-packers like me because I see them on Twitter every once in a while. And it does my heart good to see “my people” tweet stuff like this:
