I might start doing that :) But the only problem is, my mum wants to borrow a case for her holiday in August!! Ahhhh lol.
And I'll probably end up taking everything back out and repacking it all anyway lol xx

You could clear yourself a drawer (heck even a cardboard box) and start putting odds and ends in. :yes:

I usually get everything together in the spare bedroom. Little piles of this and that, suncream, cossies, books etc. I can keep going to look at them and see the piles growing. Helps the excitement when you can't actually pack!!!

Mind you it stresses me to see the growing piles and wonder if I will get everything in the cases!!!

:slap: The problem is that the earlier I start, the more I overpack! Wellll, I might need that! Then the week before we go, I end up carting half of it back to my closet!! Especially for Ty! What boy needs to bring 10 pairs of shorts and 20 shirts?!

You absolutely can begin to pack now! If your mum is going to borrow your case in the interim, just use a box or drawer. Pack the special things you've purchased or take each trip and anything you won't need until then.

Or make lists. It's probably easier to remove things from the list than from your prepacked case/box! A bit like arranging furniture on paper before actually moving it! :lol:

I start putting things in the spare room as soon as I book. Dont know why as I keep having to get most of the clothes out to wear now.

I don't start packing until about 2 or 3 days before we go as I can't stand clothes being left around the house. I do start to get a few things together and leave them in one place a few weeks before we go. :)

OMG I started packing ages ago and I'm not going till December. I buy all those little travel bottles from Boots like shampoo, conditioner, Hedex (for drinking too much wine and getting rid of the hangover). I've even bought a first aid bag in case I break anything :wink:
