What I’m Bringing to India.

If you were leaving your home for a year or so, what would you bring? If you look around at your house, your immediate reaction may be panic. That was mine.

Daily we don’t use a lot, but we accumulate a lot. We have holiday decorations, dishes, furniture, a thousand towels, and at least 47 pillows. Over the past month, I’ve been selling all of that.

Eventually I got down to the final cut, but I needed to reduce it even more. 

You can’t see it in the picture, but there are 4 piles: pack, store, donate, and trash. This mess gives you anxiety? Me too. But after I made three trips to the dumpster and filled up my entire car to drop it off to donate, it was less overwhelming.

See the giant bag and the backpack on the left? That’s what’s coming with me. The rest of it is for storage and for my friend who is taking over my Etsy shop.

So what made the cut? Be forewarned, this is literally everything. Pardon how anal I am. This is what I’m taking to India:

2 sheets
1 pillowcase
2 towels
2 washcloths
2 hankies
1 hand towel
1 turbi-towel
1 pair of sneakers
1 pair of flip flops
1 pair of flats
6 books
1 pack of cookies
2 macaroni and cheese boxes
1 bag of jalapeño chips

Pens, pencils, white out (yes, I’m serious. I only like to use one kind of pen so I stocked up)

1 saree
1 salwaar kameez
1 puffy skirt
3 churidars
4 fitted shirts
2 dress shirts
3 tshirts
1 plaid shirt
1 sweater
7 undershirts
3 pairs of jeans
2 leggings
1 pajama pant
2 bras
2 sports bras
3 pairs of socks
1 swimsuit
5 pairs of underwear
3 period underwear
5 pairs of boxers
6 pairs of earrings
1 sewing kit
1 box of qtips
1 box of pads
1 box of bandaids
1 tube of neosporin
1 bottle of tylenol
1 tub of vaseline

3 face sun screen tubes, 4 moisturizer bottles, 3 foundation tubes, 5 mascara tubes (same as above, I’m very particular about what I’ll use so I stocked up)

3 boxes of contacts
2 bottles of solution
5 contact cases
1 pair of glasses
1 razor
4 extra blades
1 packet of bobby pins
1 packet of hair ties
1 clippy thing
4 nail files
1 mini-manicure set
4 sheet masks
1 bottle of shampoo
1 bottle of conditioner
1 bottle of deva curl
1 bottle of face exfoliant
1 tub of face mask powder
3 bars of soap
1 tube of toothpaste
1 toothbrush
1 stick of deoderant
1 comb
1 steripen

Hopefully I didn’t forget anything, but anything I forget or run out of can be easily purchased.
