Ten tips for smarter packing

If you haven't checked out the search engine Mahalo, you might be pleasantly surprised. Mahalo's goal is to hand-write and maintain the top 50,000 search terms. The effort they're putting into these articles is refreshing. They've even tackled a subject near and dear to Gadling; ten packing tips for your next trip.

I was glad to see that I've incorporated at least eight out of ten of the tips when flying. For now, I might pass on donating my clothes at my destination, and I would add a couple of others, like making a checklist--which admittedly I still haven't done even after forgetting to bring pants on my last London trip. To avoid the real horror of forgetting a power adapter for my laptop, I've bought an extra to leave in the suitcase permanently, along with my second set of toiletries which are a must.

How about you? Let us know of any tips that you've discovered to make packing less of a pain or if you've found a better way to travel light.
