Up until a few weeks ago, I fully rejected the concept of packing light. Every time I took a trip, whether it was for three days or two weeks, I loaded up my giant, expandable suitcase with clunky heat styling tools for my hair, extra pairs of shoes “just in case,” and full-size toiletry bottles to ensure no step of my beauty routine would be missed. I cursed every time I heaved that weighed-down monster off the belt at baggage claim.
