«Just in CASE»
Like most of my fellow overpackers, I won’t be surprised (not even a tiny bit) if the TSA employee at security saw my bag and said, «Gosh, a lot going on in there, huh?» Meanwhile, I’ll just be standing right by the guy with the world’s smallest briefcase ever made and thinking about the 4 pairs of jeans that I never even touched during my 30-day trip in the Netherlands.
Lugging three stuffed up bags up and down stairs and across the crowded train platforms is no big deal for overpackers. It’s funny how they are willing to carry that one extra set of jewelry that they know there’s no need of but hey, let’s still bring it along!
Relatable huh! Check out these 20 tweets by fellows like you and don’t forget to murmur WHATEVER in the end.
I have too many sets to tell you, so you better move along!
Love the questioning when I'm checking in at the airport. "How many sets do you have in here?" And my favorite "Are you moving?" #overpacker

Game of Thrones cast will never be short on clothes
Every time I go away I underpack (where are my socks?) or overpack (I have enough shirts to clothe the Game of Thrones cast for a month).

Coloring book? Seriously?
*packs laptop, two books, one magazine, one coloring book, and iphone for the plane*
*sits in silence the entire flight*

Yeah, we hope you’ll get them one day
I always get excited when I see purple luggage on the carousel then I realize that I "overpack" and those bags are too small to be mine.

Can never go wrong with self-love
I love it when I overpack my suitcase so much that I'm dripping sweat trying to zip it closed.

«Just in case»
Me: *wears same bra weeks at a time and rotates between three outfits
Me, packing for vacation: *fills suitcase with 16 outfits and three different types of bras, "just in case"

A typical overpackers routine
1. Take hours to overpack.
2. Arrive in destination city.
3. Change mind about attire.
? FASHION EMERGENCY! ?
5. Repeat over the years and around the globe. ?

Exactly my point!
Overpack. It's why they make suitcases with wheels.

Education must not stop
Me: *has barely any hobbies*
Me, packing my carry on: "I will take these 14 books on pottery, and this French phrasebook because I really need to brush up on that even though I'm just going to Philadelphia, and also this crochet hook in case I want to learn how to make doilies"

When you are explaining the need of an extra bag to someone
No I didn't "overpack." I just wanted all of my clothes to feel like they took a vacation.

Because that’s the #1 rule for overpacking
When I travel i always pack 10 pairs of shoes and then wear the same crappy sneakers everyday. Why am I stupid?

White t-shirt, white t-shirt with stripes, white t-shirt of another different brand

Overpackers is a no-male society?
— divasneversettle (@jamielynn0709) August 31, 2018
I know but I still will…
I packed 6 pairs of pants, 8 shirts, and 5 tanks for 4 days at the cabin…
I know I'll probably wear the same two outfits the whole time…

The climax scene for all the overpackers

Maybe I’ll need it
Thoughts while packing:
"I haven't used this in 8 years but maybe I'll need it for a trip I'll be on for less than a week" #overpacker
