Don’t know if this is in the right forum....

Going away for sukkos - but will be gone for an extra 10 days post sukkos to help my daughter whose due day after Yom Tov.
Is there a smart way to know how much to pack? I DREAD packing Cz I am very overwhelmed as to how many things I need to bring. Every time I tell myself I’m bringing/packing the least amount of clothes. But I always end up going overboard. Is there a specific formula or way to figure out how much to pack ??
I’m also bringing food. And gifts for my grandkids. So I’m limited with space.

Are you flying?
Will it be easy for you to wash laundry?

I go away every Pesach n Sukkos n do 4 shabbos outfits, 5 weekday outfits (some more dressy some more casual) a shabbos and a weekday top with a long skirt to lounge when I dont want to be dressed, 9 pairs of underwear, 3 or 4 pjs, some stockings or tights if it may be cold, a jacket or coat depending if needed, a fall n a full shaitel.
I do laundry on Chol Hamoed if needed. I'll usually wash my kid's 4 shabbos outfits for second days, even if not strictly needed just for peace of mind she shouldn't be worried about getting dirty.

Can you bring separates that coordinate so you don't have to bring as much?
Will you be in a hotel where you need to get dressed for the meals or will you be utilizing robes?

Was thinking same thing about the separates. But what about 10 days post Yom Tov? I’ll figure it out... nope no hotel. I wish!! I think 🤔

Bring 6 days of weekday for the whole trip. That should get you through an entire week and you'll wash halfway through the 10 days.
