Wardrobe Strategies for Career, Travel & Casual Lifestyles

“Tips for Travelers” Newsletter


“Thank you, Susan & Leslie, for all the years that you have done the newsletter and all the expert tips you shared. They have made a huge difference in the way I approach travel.”       
                                                                                                    Susanne N., a subscriber


Smart Women On The Go welcomed Smart Packing‘s Tips for Travelers e-newsletter to this site in 2016. Susan Foster, author of the top selling book Smart Packing for Today’s Traveler, created this newsletter to provide timely packing and travel information to her book readers. Leslie Willmott joined Susan in 2012 to expand the newsletter to include travel diaries and destination-specific packing lists.

Leslie and Susan write with a commitment to provide you with a selection of travel news and packing information presented in a straightforward manner and without sponsorship. Their goal is to help you pack smart and be savvier than many other travelers, no matter how, where or when you are traveling.
