Whether you’re a travel addict or just like to kick back on the occasional weekend getaway, finding ways to organize your vacation schedule will help give you the most relaxation bang for your buck. If you’re not a travel expert, don’t fear – the team at Closet & Storage Concepts of Boston put our own organizational knowledge to the test to help you make the most of your time away from home. Read on to learn our best recommendations for the do’s and don’ts of organized travel.
DO: Put Tech to Work for You
DON’T: Spend your Vacation on Your Phone
Travel apps are a huge boon for anyone who likes to use tech to bring organization to their lives. With smartphones, we can check into our flights remotely, carry our rental car and hotel confirmations digitally, and stay in touch with our friends and family no matter where our trip takes us. It’s important to remember that part of the goal of traveling is to immerse yourself in new environments. As you travel, embrace tech to simplify the logistical process, but try not to rely on it as a crutch. Spending too much time on your phone might mean you miss out on the chance to grow through your adventures.
DO: Create To-Do Lists and Do Initial Research
DON’T: Forget Spontaneity
Thanks to the wonders of Yelp and its ilk, we’re able to prepare travel itineraries that let us live like locals. Initial research and to-do lists are great ways to get your feet wet in a new area, but don’t become so engrossed in the plan that you forget the value of spontaneity. As you’re traveling, keep your eyes and ears open for opportunities that a Google search might not yield; don’t be afraid to stray from your scheduled path.
DO: Create Lasting Memories
DON’T: Fill Your Suitcase with Clutter
We would be remiss as storage solutions experts if we didn’t take a moment to emphasize the benefits of making memories from moments, not from souvenirs. While a few precious reminders of your trip can be a great way to bring the lessons of your adventures home with you, filling your suitcase with clutter will only complicate your travel and your life at home when you return.
We hope these tips help you enjoy your best trip yet. Before or after your trip, stop by Closet & Storage Concepts of Boston. We’re organizational experts who specialize in crafting solutions for all of our clients’ storage needs.
