The ulitmate packing list!

Dear Sisters,
 I know it is a little overwhelming to consider what to bring and what not so I am going to make the ultimate packing list to help you all with this frustrating proses of packing.
  • 9 Cardigans (Black, Grey, Tan, Cream, and 3-5 other colors or prints)
  • 5 undershirts or shade shirts (Get them from down east basics, these will be your best friend)
  • 10-12 Shirts & Tanks to mix and match with skirts (Make sure you can make a million and one combinations if it only works with one skirt... pass)
  • 8-10 Skirts (Thrift Stores have so many cute long modest skirts and get 100% wool skirts they're so warm!)
  • 2-4 dresses (The sister missionaries said bring a few comfy dresses some days you're just lazy)
  • 5 pairs of underwear for that time of the month (The matron of the temple told me I could do this, it's a good way to be sure your G's stay clean)
  • 5 GOOD neutral colored bras
  • 3-4 P-day shirts
  • 2 pairs of Jeans
  • 1 pair of knee length basketball shorts

  • 1-2 other coats
  • 6-7 sweaters or heavier cardigans
Accessories and Shoes:

    Just trying to find a way to get through and wish you well. Would also like to see how your work for the Lord is going there at the Temple. Just wrote Ben today down in Chile.
