Packing takes on different meanings…and, of course, what we pack, how much, how many, and how we use them all!! Is it for a night, weekend, week, or month? “Travel sizes” are available in so many.
A trip “out of town” - the Cape, the Hamptons, Hawaii, Malibu, Mexico, Sanibel, Riviera or “out of doors” may all require: Bags and Totes, Sunscreen, Hats, Pillows, Beach Towels and Sunglasses.
