Make sure that you have some plates and silverware (maybe even plastic ones that you can rewash).  We didn’t have anything to eat off of when we first moved in because we couldn’t find the right box.  Are you still going to have beds left to sleep on when the stuff leaves?

My memory foam pillow. I sleep so freakin’ well on it, a regular pillow would do me no justice.

Also…fuzzy soaks. Wear ’em all the time. I even take them on business travel.

And of course, things like my laptop, my glasses, clothes, etc, but fuzzy socks and memory foam pillows are unnecessary cling-to type items.

Every time I go on a trip I make sure I have my hair straightener, my glasses, my contacts, my laptop, my phone charger ( i forget it a lot lol)… and I think thats pretty much it, besides make up, tooth brush and necessities like that,…hmmm I feel like I am forgetting something, but I kind always feel like that.

I lived out of a suitcase for two months one summer while i was an intern. I pretty much had to replace those pants and polo shirts, by the way, cuz they got SO worn out! =]. And if i ran out of, say, soap, i bought the $1 kind. i hated living like that!

The 1st thing I always pack is any meds or vitamins we need. Cell chargers, important jewelry – think of the things you use in your daily routine that you can’t just run to CVS & replace. It’s the important stuff I forget and the things I really don’t need that I usually bring. LOL

I’d pack a couple things planning on weird weather too. I know it’s warm there but sometimes those breezes are pretty chilly, so def squeeze in as many sundresses & tank tops as you can but don’t forget to bring a sweater/warm PJ’s too.

And don’t forget to post gorgeous pictures so we can all be jealous once you’re there! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve lived out of a suitcase for long periods.  The only things that you really need to remember are things like your computer, your camera, glasses, and good shoes.  Obviously some clothes and toiletries, but those things can be picked up on the cheap, so if they’re forgotten, it’s no big deal.  It’s temporary, so whatever you forget isn’t gone forever!  ๐Ÿ™‚

I used to do some promo modeling and did a 3 months tour across the country.  Me & 3 other girls (plus a driver) stuffed into 1 SUV – we each got 1 suitcase and 1 carryon-size bag.  The 2 lifesavers I made sure to pack were my fav CDs (I’m dating myself – this was before everyone had ipods!) and a comfy track suit for lounging.  When I got homesick or felt out-of-place or “off”, those 2 things gave me a sense of home, familiarity and comfort.

When we went to CA, on our way back home we left my body pillow at a hotel. They called us when we were already 2 hours down the road ๐Ÿ™  We didn’t go back and get it of course because they’re only like 10 bucks but still… I was sad.

A little over 2 years ago, I moved to a foreign country and with me I brought 3 suitcases and with the exception of a few things I have purchased since moving here I that has been it! I would definitely keep a purse that you can transition from day to night. My really really nice sheets – OMG it has been 100% worth it to have my good sheets even if it meant one or two less pairs of shoes. A pair of flats that can be worn to work, to dinner, and when running around town! I have an alarm clock/radio/ipod holder thing that is a must!

Things that I wish I would have not brought – extra night clothes – totally not necessary. Since it is only for a month I would not keep any kitchen stuff and would just eat sandwhiches off of paper plates.

One of the things that I did was make a list of the things that I used on a daily basis before I left and I included everything whether it was little or big.

 

Good luck!

You still might want to take a few plates and forks since you will get there to a pile of boxes and won’t know what is where necessarily!
