We use Eagle Creek folding containers because we have large duffle bags, no hard heavy cases. Although, for our dress clothes and jackets I do the same as Jan: cover them on the hangers with several dry cleaner bags and fold them and put them inside and on top of the duffle.
I have to ask you girls "Does anyone wear pantyhose anymore?" I haven't worn them since I retired almost seven years ago. All of my shoes are open toed (except my walking shoes - Mephisto's) and I wear them barefoot. I guess with the cool weather in NZ, I better put some socks in the bag. Bought another pair of shoes to day (I didn't have any white sandals). So far I have two pair of flat sandals, one pair of white heels, one pair of gold heels, three pair of black heels, one pair of brown heels. Plus walking shoes that I will wear on the plane and water shoes. I guess I better look at them and take out one pair. LOL DH says he is bringing two pair packed and walking shoes on the plane. -- More room for me--
Please don't tell my DH that those cookies are not diet/no sugar ones!! Although I always ask for sugar free desserts (and they are good) in the dining room.
I walk about 4 to 5 days here in the park since we came to Florida and will try to continue once on board.. Good idea we get together, DH doesn't walk with me. I just put the Ipod in my ears and start walking. Once we get home in Canada in March, I think the weather will be too cold for me.
As for the capris, I love them. Although I have two pair of dress shorts to pack. Will be wearing the capris the most.
Love this gabfest with no men.
