I’m leaving for a weeklong business trip, so I thought this was the perfect time to reveal some of my favorite packing tricks.

Look, this isn’t fancy. I refuse to wait at the luggage carousel or pray my bag doesn’t get lost, so it’s all about the bare minimum.

For a Monday through Friday work trip, this is all I pack:

  • 4 shirts
  • 4 sweaters/jackets
  • 2 pairs of pants
  • 1 pair of pajamas
  • 1 set of workout clothes

Plus my favorite tricks:

  • Roll your clothes (don’t fold!)
  • Scented trash bags (for those smelly workout clothes on the way back)
  • Scented dryer sheets
