Just curious, what are your "unpacking" habits when you're on vacation?

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this should be a random thought, but I put it in the travel subforum since it relates to traveling.

 

DH & I are opposites when it comes to unpacking while on vacation. This is mostly true on trips where we're spending more than 3-4 days away.

When we arrive to our destination, whether its a cruise or a resort/hotel, he unpacks everything in his luggage & puts it in drawers & closets.

 

Me on the other hand, I live out of my bag! The thought of unpacking after I painstakingly tried to fit everything inside the luggage perfectly, is just totally unappealing & overwhelming. LOL

 

I must say that I've gotten better with this since I started putting my clothes in those space saver bags that you push the air out of. I use those & then pack that in the luggage and when I arrive to our destination, I just pull the entire space saver bag out & put that in the drawer.

 

So, I'm just wondering, what are your unpacking habits?

Do you totally unpack & make the resort your home? Or, do you leave your clothes packed & live out of your bag?

haha, you are too funny! I am with you. I don't unpack a thing. I guess it is more sanitary reasons for me. I am a germaphobe and I don't want to put my bathing suits, panties, clothes, etc. in drawers and closets when I don't know what has been there before me =) FI leaves his clothes in his suitcases too!

hahahaha! Girl, you're a mess. But yea...I cannot lie, I live out of the suitcases/bags. I don't like the idea of my stuff being in unfamiliar drawers. I don't so much think of germs, just dirt in general since ya never know when the last time was that something was cleaned.

Im the same way! I leave everything in my suitcase and then on the last day repack it in. FI though likes to unpack everything and put it away in drawers...so odd to me!! Im also a VERY last minute packer...i will wait till the last second because I hate doing it...I hope I dont do that for the wedding though!

It really depends on where we are going and how long we are staying. If it's a weekend trip or something 3-4 days then we both usually keep most of our stuff in our suitcase. With the exception of nice clothes and our jackets. For trips longer than 5 days or if on a cruise we unpack everything. It just makes it easier. Also it depends where we are staying, in the past few years we have stayed at nicer hotels so I feel alittle more comfortable unpacking.

Interesting and fun thread...

 

I am just the opposite of everyone else. I travel a lot for business and I cannot stand living/working out of my suitcase. I unpack everything when we first arrive and make myself completely at home in the hotel room - my temporary "home" (which is unfortunately how I refer to it when I am away on business). I then throw my dirty clothes in the suitcase throughtout the week, and repack everything the last day - trying to keep anything that is clean separate from the stuff that is dirty.

Length of time also is the factor for me, 3- days live out of suitcase, 4+ days, I hang stuff up put in drawers etc. Anything to pretend I "live" on vacation :)

 

And a little that I am a "nester"!! LOL

Yeah I can't stand living out of my suitcase no matter how short the trip - I always unpack! FI is the complete opposite and it always bothers me so I go ahead and unpack for him as well.

ditto...short trips = suitcase...long trips = closet/drawers

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
