Every Study Abroad faces the daunting task of packing for four months away. We are told to pack light, but honestly, what does that mean? I mean, it’s FOUR months. So what’s a SA to do? One word: Thrift. Klaipeda has several thrift stores in its Downtown which many of us have frequented at least a few times. Prices vary depending on where you go, but you can find some great stuff very reasonably priced. Keep this in mind when packing. You can pack lighter than you think and when you get tired of your limited options (and you will), a thrift store can come in mighty handy.
