    I use cubes. Have basic colour palette i.e. Navy and White, Red and Black etc. everything must mix and match. Take a camping clothes line and some pegs. If going to the tropics take twice as much underwear and twice as less outer wear. Sarongs are the go to. If going to Europe take a corkscrew, they don't have screw top wine bottles!!
