I'm kinda shame to show you the old, boro-boro clothes that I'm gonna be wearing on my upcoming trip, but I wanna share with you the trick that I use so that I can end up with enough suitcase space to bring home plenty omiyage. Please keep in mind that I will be wearing a brand-new jacket over the bust-up clothes, so hopefully I won't look too bad. Our trip will be 12 days long. Here are my tops. I will wear the top on the right coming home. The rest will each get tossed after about 2 days' use. Don't worry . . . they are years and years old, and normally shoulda been thrown away long ago.
Same with the pants. The black pants on the right will get worn home. The rest of the pants will get tossed after 3 (or more) days' use each.
The black socks are actually Wendell's ankle-length socks that he doesn't use anymore. The white ones are my old ones. I have enough socks so that I can put on a fresh pair each morning. None of these are coming home.
These will be my pajamas (thanks Mich). Both will be left behind. The airlines we're using allows two suitcases, so I am also packing a second bag within my suitcase to use (to fill!) coming home. !!!!!
