One way that I’ve effectively curtailed my desire to overpack is the strategic use of Pinterest for capsule wardrobe ideas.  I’ve curated an entire Pinterest board of various mix-and-match packing lists for various types of trips and trip lengths.

Jetsetter’s Pinterest Packing Lists

I might not own the exact items on the list.  But I try to work with my own wardrobe to substitute my own clothing in to a specific capsule mix.  If I prefer a different color scheme, I can substitute that for the one shown in the photos.

For a cruise, I might take out a couple of dresses and replace with resort wear.  Then I will work in a couple of options that can go from day-to-evening on the resort casual evenings.  Or for a work conference, I may mix in more dresses.  Then I will eliminate a couple of casual outfits and replace with separates.

This strategy makes it much easier to walk in my closet.  I can plan my clothing for a trip of varying duration.  It also helps me to rotate my wardrobe more effectively.  I’m not wearing the same black suit repeatedly on every trip just because it’s “easy”.

Check out my assortment of packing lists on Pinterest. You can follow it to be updated on new additions as I discover them.

I’d love to hear your comments on which are your favorites.  Also add suggestions for great pins to include on the board!

[…] This article has been revised to keep content fresh.  Packing for a luxury cruise is something I do a couple times each year so I continue to refine the process!  It is important to note that despite careful planning, I was forced to check both carry-on bags in Istanbul on the return.  Then British Airways lost my luggage!  If only I had known about Luggage Forward back then.  Our article Five Strategies for Chronic Overpackers is also a good resource along with our packing lists on Pinterest.
