While I live for travel, there are few things more stressful than preparing for a trip. Why? Because I tend to leave absolutely everything to the last minute. I work best under pressure, and I’m the world’s biggest procrastinator.
Wondering why you aren’t organised before travelling? says it has something to do with your zodiac sign! I’m a Sagittarius and we’re the hoarder signs. I find it hard to throw things away or get rid of them, which is why I’m still carrying around clothes I haven’t worn for two years.
If only I was a Taurus. These signs are the ones who are the best at packing, since they believe in having everything in their place. These are the people who pack absolutely everything into packing cubes, and they’ve always got their passport, boarding pass, and credit cards stored neatly in the same place.
Virgos are also amazing at travel organisation. They tend to buy things just so they can organise them, and they’ll always be the ones buying the latest travel organisation gadget to keep all of their electronics and cords neatly tucked away.
If you’re a Pisces and Capricorn, you’re basically a fan of outsourcing (I can get behind that). You’re also gadget-orientated, and your kitchen is full of the kind of gadgets that make it quick and simple to stay organised. Your filing systems are also organised to the extreme, but it’s more than likely that you’ve hired an intern to do it for you. You’re the type of person who will pay someone to pack for you before you go on vacation, so you never have to sweat the small stuff.
Scorpios are also hoarders (just like us poor Sagittarius signs). If you’re still holding onto VHS’s hoping they’ll make a comeback, you could probably stand to do a little spring cleaning.
Cancer and Libra signs actually find organising peaceful (can you believe it?) but they like to keep it feeling effortless. They’ll be the ones who won’t have their suitcase organised by day, but will have it looking pretty- probably in colour order.
While I consider myself to be relatively unorganised, at least I’m not an Aries. They’re rightfully described as a ram in a china shop. They have anything and everything in their bag except their passport and wallet, and they have to sit on their suitcase to get it to close since they haven’t taken the time to fold or roll their clothes.
Gemini is exactly the same, and you could describe their organisational style as “horizontal” since most of their clothes are on the floor.
Aquarius and Leo are always thinking about fun, and not so much about the mess that comes with it. They’re great travel buddies, but may not want to share a hotel room with them, unless you love living amongst fast food wrappers.
