This is the final installment of my packing saga. AI leave in 2 days and all of the essentials are now packed, along with all of my favorite clothes. I did finally cave and decide to take 2 suitcases. Once this decision was made, the packing process became much smoother.

My two suitcases and carry-on for my move to Germany

Just after this picture was taken, I weighed my suitcases. The larger one on the left was 38 pounds and the smaller one on the right was 30 pounds. It is nice to know that I have room for anything else I think of over the next couple days.

I kept tally of my clothes as I packed them in my suitcase. So if you were curious, I packed:
1 winter coat, 3 pairs of jeans, 10 tops/blouses, 19 pairs of underwear, 6 tanktops, 4 dresses, 8 pairs of socks, 4 bras, 3 pairs of shorts, 6 skirts, 4 sweaters, 2 bathing suits, 6 pairs of shoes, 3 scarves, and a business suit.

Whew! That sounds like a lot.
