While preparing for a trip, it’s easy to get in the habit of packing a few extra (OK, a lot of extra) things “just in case.”
If you’re a chronic overpacker, you’re familiar with asking yourself questions like, “Do I need six pairs of shoes for a two-day trip?” and “What about this dress I haven’t worn in five years?” And if the answer to those questions is “yes,” you’ll be happy to know Twitter is full of people just like you.
Below, check out 18 funny tweets about overpacking that are totally spot-on.

No I didn’t “overpack.” I just wanted all of my clothes to feel like they took a vacation.

1. Take hours to overpack.
2. Arrive in destination city.
3. Change mind about attire.
? FASHION EMERGENCY! ?
5. Repeat over the years and around the globe. ?
