What You Should Pack for a Weekend Trip


Do you ever have a trip planned, but then never end up packing until the night (or hours) before because you don’t know what to bring? Okay so maybe I always do this. Living in Europe and being able to travel over the weekend to a different country has made me better at packing for weekend trips. Here is my go-to weekend trip packing list!


  • One pair of pants/bottom or a dress
  • Two shirts
  • Undergarments
  • Socks
  • I always bring a jacket or sweater just incase it gets cold


You really only need one pair of shoes. Maybe bring a nicer pair if you plan on dressing nicer one day or night.


  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Hairbrush
  • deodorant
  • Lotion
  • Feminine products
  • Contact supplies
  • Shampoo/conditioner

*shampoo and conditioner can be left out if you plan to shower before your trip or if you don’t think you will need them


  • Hats, gloves, scarfs if will be cold
  • Scarf if cold
  • Check to see if your hostel includes towels because you may need to bring one
  • Chargers
  • Headphones
  • Earplugs

What to Pack it in:

I love “weekender bags”! They are super easy to pack and carry. Below I have a few and they are all under $40!!

The key to packing for a weekend trip is to keep it light! If you notice that your packing pile is looking big, then go through the items again and see what you can get rid of.
