How to Pack by Hitha Palepu -- my REVIEW
I hate to pack for trips. Perhaps it is because I have myself, my husband, and 3 children to pack for. I dislike packing so much that awhile ago when we were all set for a trip and weather made us postpone it for a week, I kept all the suitcases packed up for that week so as to not have to re-pack the following week :)
The book How to Pack by Hitha Palepu is a book whose title tells just what it is about! The book (which adorably looks like luggage with a luggage tag) tells the reader all about packing for a trip. The author gives a little background of her own and why packing perfectly is so helpful. She goes on to give suggestions for what to pack, how to pack it, and also gives the "whys" of what she suggests.
There is a section about power pieces, accessories, dirty laundry, toiletries, and etc. There is a section on folding vs rolling, an instruction of how to actually pack your suitcase, and a section about what suitcase you actually need. She has included her "perfect packing lists" as well as some tear-out packing lists for you to fill in and use.
This book was kind of fun to read :) It was definitely written for someone who is single and on-the-move a lot. Think some executive who has to fly for work week after week. It has some great information that I think would be very useful to someone in that setting. Admittedly I am not the demographic this book is written for. I would suggest this book for someone who is.
It is a cute book, neat idea, written in an interesting fashion, and easy to follow.
