Vacations and getaways allow you to see the world and relax. Although your vacation is likely to be fun and relaxing, planning and packing for your vacation can be stressful. This is especially true when it comes to a long-term or extended stay.

It can be difficult to decide which clothes to bring, particularly since weather is hard to predict. Most people leaving on an extended stay worry about having enough clothing to last for the entire visit. However, unless they pay extra fees, they are tethered to the same luggage and carry-on rules as people embarking on a short vacation.

This dilemma can be remedied by being smart about your packing. In order to ensure that you have what you need on your extended stay, plan to bring a versatile wardrobe that can be used in different situations. Pack only the items you need and use different packing tips and tricks to fit everything in your luggage.
