Leave It At Home! What You Shouldn’t Pack for Your Trip From SeaTac

luggageSome things are better left at home when you’re traveling. You may be tempted to take everything you use in your daily life with you, but there are good reasons to avoid bringing certain things along. These tips should help you to determine which items you can leave behind when you fly from SeaTac Airport.

Heavy or Bulky Clothing

Jeans are an easy item to have with you on a trip because they can be worn for a variety of activities. However, denim can be heavy, and it can consume a lot of space in your luggage. Limit yourself to one pair of jeans, and bring other, more lightweight pairs of pants with you. Also, try to refrain from packing bulky garments, such as a heavy wool coat. Lighter pieces of clothing will pack more efficiently, and you’ll be able to fit more of them in your suitcase.

Styling Accessories for Hair

You may feel that you cannot cope without your blow-dryer, straightening iron, or hot rollers, but those objects consume much luggage space. Using them also consumes time during your trip that could otherwise be spent enjoying your travel destination. If you have a complicated hairstyle or hair that needs plenty of styling before you’re happy with it, ask your hairdresser for tips on how to style it while you’re traveling. You can pack a smaller blow-dryer meant for travel, but call your hotel first to see if your room comes equipped with this type of styling appliance.

Valuable Items

A trip away from home is not an occasion for wearing that priceless antique jewelry that you inherited from a relative. You might want to show it off when you’re enjoying yourself in another city, but you might also lose it or discover that it’s been stolen. Resist the urge to wear expensive jewelry on your vacation, and bring a simple piece or two with you that won’t attract the attention of potential thieves. Remember to leave other valuable objects at home, as well – such as costly photography equipment or anything that has great sentimental value for you (the airline could lose it).

A Broad Array of Electronics

You may use certain devices every day when you’re at home, but challenge yourself to live without them on your trip. You may want to pack your phone and your reading device, but leave the laptop at home unless you need it for business purposes. Traveling offers a great opportunity to disconnect somewhat from the electronic culture in which we live today. Use the time instead to view amazing sights that you may only get to see once in your lifetime.

Traveling with all of your favorite things is generally not a practical strategy. Try to view your travel experience as a chance to see the world from a different perspective than you usually do. By leaving certain things at home, you can get the most out of your trip – and those items will all be there when you return. When you fly out of SeaTac Airport, don’t forget to leave your car at the Aeroparking lot for security and affordability.
