"PUT EVERY THING YOU WANT TO TAKE OUT ON THE BED, THEN TAKE HALF AS MUCH CLOTHES AND TWICE AS MUCH MONEY."
Well, I did the clothes thing & still took too much. Next time I'm taking 1/3 of the clothes.
One thing I didn't see mentioned: rope and clothes pins so you can hang things to dry
Rope was also handy to tie the dive bag to the golf cart [theft prevention] Popped all the purches into the bag and didn't worry about 'em falling out.
Give 'em away before ya leave
