Packing for a Weekend Trip + Tips

Caleb and I seem to be heading to Ohio for the weekend at least once a month. With all of those road trips, you start to learn tips and tricks for utilizing space and only packing what's important. I absolutely love travelling, but packing is something I tend to put off until last minute. These tips help make the job that much easier and faster too! 
 I try to pack clothes that are neutral or similar in color. This way I can mix and match pieces to create multiple outfits, without having to bring tons of pieces. I usually start out by putting everything in piles before I put it in the bag. This way I can see what I have and what else I need to get. I also try to make a list of everything I need and then while I put things in the bag I can check it off one by one.

Here's a quick run down of what I'm bringing this weekend:
-2 tops
-1 cami
-denim shorts
-blue shorts
-PJs
-cowboy boots
-socks and undies
-flats
-makeup bag

This weekend bag has so much room, I can fit all of things in here and all of my husband's clothes as well. I love that I don't have to lug tons of bags around. The simpler packing can be the better!
In a separate bag I put all my beauty products and chargers/small electronics. I usually bring my Longchamp because it is water resistant and has tons of room for everything I need! Finally I bring a cross body bag to hold my phone, camera, and important papers. 

Once the bags are all packed I'm ready to go! By the time you read this, I'll probably be heading on my way to Ohio. 
Are y'all heading anyplace exciting soon? What are your tips of packing? Let me know!
