Packing for Teacher Training: A Photo Essay

All my clothes laid out on my coffee table. I wanted to cut this amount in half, but only managed to put back six items.
The shoes I'm bringing. Notice none require that I wear socks! It's California after all.

All my clothing, shoes, and toiletries inside my XL duffel bag. I can barely lift it. Hoping it's under 50lbs! Otherwise I'll have to dish out $75.
Kitchen items that are coming along on the journey. Last minute I put back the Brita as my luggage was over capacity. I'll pick one up in San Diego.

Kitchen items all packed in my carry-on.

All ready to go and still a day to spare! Yay!


  1. WOW! That is one impressive packing job! I love that you are bringing a George Forman onto the airplane. :)

    Have such a wonderful time at teacher training!!!

  2. Good job!!!
    I'm still at it, right now. What's left is to figure out which suitcase and if I bother with a carry on or rather 1 1/2 suitcases....

  3. Yayyy!! I'm very excited for you! I hope you have time to blog while you're there! I'm stoked to have a new perspective to take in as I consider BKTT for myself. :) I hope your experience is stellar!

  4. Not to freak you out and get you to add more stuff, but San Diego is a desert and can get quite chilly mid-October! I'd pack at least one pair you can wear with socks so you don't get cold when I take you out for some fabulous Mexican food!

  5. YES, bring socks and a light sweater too. It can get cold at night time. Can't wait to meet you !!

  6. ((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))
    have a blast.

  7. Cira and Elisa, you are right! I was freezing last night in SD. It's as cold as it is back home! While I did bring socks, I didn't bring any shoes I can wear them in. Luckily our hotel is located right next to Fashion Valley -- time to go shopping!

  8. Over a year later, and this blog about BKTT is totally still rocking my world. Finally going to Spring 2012 and I can't wait to dive into your blog. Thank you so much for sharing this.
