I've been thinking a lot about the idea of having a target number of garments to pack. The clarity and focus that this lends to the packing process is interesting, and can be useful if you're the kind of person who wants to toss their entire closet into the suitcase... Today, I'm over at Tish's, exploring the possibilities. ... View the Post
