The Art of Packing

Did I ever mention that I am not artistic?

It's Saturday night and I am staying in to try to save money! So, I decided to attempt my packing and see what I can/cannot fit into my new backpack! I will share some pics at the end of the blog so you can comment. I purchased my backpack at REI about a month ago. This trip will be my first attempt at traveling with a backpack and I mostly feel like an old lady attempting to look hip/cool (which I am not...hip/cool that is....or OLD!).

I have read a lot of blogs about packing and what to take/not to take and I think I have my list narrowed down. Please feel free to let me know your opinions.

For packing purposes I have a large backpack (with attachable day-pack), messenger bag (for daily use), Two large and two small packing cubes (love them).
