Smile Paper Ho needs help packing, LOL!

Need a decision ummm quickly since I procrastinated so much and I only have like 2.5 days to pack (it's not like I didn't know I was going). Heading out for scrappy weekends for the next 5 months. Not sure whether everything (I so overpack) I take is going to fit in this smaller vehicle. Only one place has a store on site the others don't as far as I'm aware. SO my question to you is.......1) do I power layout - knowing that I really hate putting things back away or 2) do I take selected 12x12 cs and all pattern paper (only bc of Kiwi Lane, LOL) or 3) just take it ALL and make it fit in the dang vehicle, which just might have to happen. Don't you wish that all problems in life were this simple???? Your thoughts and no I could never go digital unless I got a smart car, ROTLMAO!!!! Besides the paper is getting really heavy, too.
Any help is appreciated.

I would take some patterned papers maybe a few extra and solid paper to match. If you're ambitios you can post it label each sheet with what you plan to scrap.

I would take a pile of florals, a pile of geometrics and as much solid 12x12 and 81/2 x11 cardstock as I could carry. If you know you will be doing holiday pages, add a pile of Christmas, winter and fall papers. If you take too much, it's not only a packing issue but it takes longer to get each page rolling with more decisions to make and more paper to rifle through. Have fun and make some awesome pages!

I have a rolling file folder container (bought at office max). It hold TONS, and I mean TONS of 12X12 paper. I keep all my DSP and other paper packs in it. I take it with me to crops because it is very easy to roll on in. I throw some solid card stock in there and off I go!!!
I have a blog post about how I store my paper on my blog and it shows the office max rolling tote, in case you are interested. It is a video.

If it were me, I would go the Kiwi Lane route and make lots of pages. Why: 1. I have so much DP that I need to use up. 2. I love the Kiwi Lane. That being said, I know I would pack way to much because I might need it. Good luck. Have fun.
