Woman Shares Her 'Irrational Thoughts While Packing' for a Trip and Everyone Can Relate

We've all had the exact same thing running through our brains.

Packing for a trip can be overwhelming, especially for those of us who tend to be worriers. What if we forget something? What if we don't pack the right type of clothes? This is where checking the weather and making a list are both tips that come in handy, but that's just the beginning.

If this sounds familiar to you, you're going to want to watch this video from @corporatenatalie. She's sharing all of the "irrational thoughts" she has while packing, and we have to admit that we can really relate — and we have a feeling that plenty of other people out there do, too, since this video is now going viral.

She's packing way too many clothes — just in case she wants to change clothes three times a day — and rationalizes that she can fill up her whole suitcase because if she wants to go shopping, she can just buy another suitcase when she gets there. And of course, she includes an outfit that doesn't fit her, just in case something magical happens when she's on vacation and she can wear it.

"I'm there for five days, so six purses should be enough," she says. She also throws in 12 swimsuits and 45 pairs of underwear, just in case.

Judging by the comments, plenty of others pack this way, too.

"Not me always bringing 6 sweatshirts and windbreakers 'in case it gets cold' for a tropical vacation," one person added.

At least we're not alone in our irrational packing thoughts. But maybe next time, we should cut back on the stacks of underwear a bit.
