The Handbag Packing Masterclass

Handbag Packing Masterclass - intensive ultralight packing masterclass to learn how to travel personal-item-only

I once traveled for 3 weeks with a 12L messenger bag – and I still managed to have several outfits, a full toiletries kit, a spare pair of shoes, and a fold-up keyboard to type articles and emails out on my phone.

Sound impossible? Think again.

Introducing… The Handbag Packing Masterclass

This hands-on masterclass spans 6 weeks and is designed to push your packing skills to the max. Together, we will pack for a trip using ONLY a handbag!

YES, you CAN learn how to pack ultralight…

>> Even if you’ve spent years stuffing your suitcase to the brim.
>> Or, you’ve got a very loud “what-if voice” in your head.

HPM will teach you the art of personal-item-only travel.

Discover what’s possible with a small space and learn from others in the process.

This Could Be You!

Real results from HPM students!

The Next Intensive 6-Week Class Begins on June 5th, 2022

The Handbag Packing Masterclass will help you to:

  • Hone in on your true packing needs versus wants.
  • Focus on what’s absolutely vital on your packing list.
  • Know what’s possible with just a small packing space.
  • Identify improvements that will benefit your future packing experiences.
  • Think differently about packing altogether!

Seeing how others approach the same exercise will provide ideas for creatively solving your own packing problems.

“Now as a traveler, I’m much less anxious, I’m much more prepared, and I’m definitely enjoying my time off as soon as I walk out my front door.”
-Chris Guillot, Merchant Method

“What I really wanted to talk about was Brooke’s involvement with the class. I wasn’t able to go to any of her live office hours, but I could shoot her a comment and during the class, she would actually address my comment, and I felt so loved. It helped so much, and the tips that she gave were amazing.”
-Stacey Thomas

“After participating in the HPLWorld 5-week Handbag Packing Masterclass, I feel as if I’ve been let in on some of the most incredible secrets of traveling light!

This class does more than just make me feel ready to travel; I AM ready to travel light and carefree!”

Hey there! I’m Brooke!

I’ve been running Her Packing List since 2010, helping hundreds of thousands of women to pack smarter and feel more confident when they travel the world.

However, it wasn’t until I ran The Handbag Packing Masterclass for the first time in 2020 that I was able to really, truly help travelers overcome the main barrier of packing light: MINDSET.

Believe me when I say that I am so excited to run The Handbag Packing Masterclass again.

This class works. Even if you think you could never pack for a trip using nothing but a handbag, you just might surprise yourself.

See you inside?

Masterclass FAQs

➡️ When does this take place?

The masterclass officially starts on June 5, 2022 at 5 pm (PDT – Los Angeles) with a live Launch Party and will run for 6 weeks. Dates may vary depending on which part of the world you reside in.

  • June 5, 2022 at 8 pm (EDT – New York)
  • June 6, 2022 at 10 am (AEST – Sydney)

➡️ How does it work?

Each Sunday at 5 pm PDT, a module of lessons and weekly assignments will unlock.

Every Wednesday at 5 pm PDT, I will go live for a one-hour Office Hours session to offer any additional guidance and support you may need. It’s the perfect time to brainstorm and problem-solve with your fellow classmates!

Interaction and sharing in the group are definitely encouraged! Learning from and supporting other members during this masterclass is a big part of making it worthwhile!

At week 6, I will be asking you all to present your packing result with the group. Does it have to be perfect? NOPE! The goal is to get you thinking differently about how you pack and have some fun in the process!

➡️ Where does this class take place?

This class will take place inside a secret group within the HPLWorld community. Once you sign up, you will be sent the invite link to the Masterclass group along with further instructions.

➡️ Do I need to be available for the live session each week?

Nope! You can pop in to watch the replay and get the weekly lessons at any time.

I’ve specifically designed this class so that it works for anyone in any part of the world. You may not be able to attend the live sessions, but you will get to watch the replays and have access to the live community throughout the entire course.

➡️ What size handbag are we talking about?

That’s completely up to you. You choose your own packing adventure here. If you want to use an oversized handbag, that’s perfectly fine! If you want to use a tiny backpack, that’s fine, too! Just be sure to choose a bag size that is going to really challenge you – and that you would consider a “handbag.”

I think I’m going super small for this one – just 8L!

➡️ Can I take this class if I am plus-sized?

Absolutely! We’ve had plus-sized ladies in past classes pack very successfully in 12, 15 and 20-liter personal-item-sized bags.

➡️ Will I be able to travel with just a handbag after this masterclass?

You will get all the information and tips I used for traveling with that little messenger bag for 3 entire weeks. If you are willing and able to pack similarly, then YES absolutely!

The true goal of this exercise is to think differently about packing altogether. To hit the reset button and discover what is possible when given just a tiny space to work with.

Honing in on true needs versus wants will forever change your packing. Even if handbag-only packing isn’t for you, you might discover that school-sized backpack travel is absolutely possible on your next getaway!

➡️ How do I sign up?

You will need to click over to this form to complete your registration to the masterclass.

Once payment has been made, a special secret invite link to the secret masterclass will be sent to your email address. Click the link, sign in to the HPLWorld Mighty Network (or create a new account), and you’ll find yourself in the class!

Even if you think “personal-item-only” travel sounds extreme…

This class will help you harness your packing light power once and for all.

Read Sheryl’s story:

I’ve been traveling since I was a child. My parents took us three kids on long camping road trips every summer. We took, literally, everything including the kitchen sink. Because we had to put so much gear into a car, we were limited on the clothing items that each of us could take. Later, I studied for a year in Germany as a university student. I took only one large suitcase with me and my parents shipped one carton box with cold-weather clothing to me after I had found a place to live. Not having much money as a poor student I couldn’t afford to buy more clothes, so I had only those things to wear for the year. I have travelled frequently for the almost 60 years since then.

So when I took the Handbag Packing Masterclass I thought I pretty much knew all about packing and taking a limited amount. Boy, was I wrong! Brooke’s class helped me look at things from a different perspective.

Since taking the class I have had the opportunity to take numerous overnight trips, a couple of weekend trips, and several weeks’ long trips.

I most recently travelled from my home where the temperatures were cold (in the low teens FAHRENHEIT), to wonderfully warm (Hawaii), and finally to cool and damp (the east coast with temps slightly above freezing and rainy). I have needed clothing which could layer, be suitable for leisure activities in all weather, plus also suitable for a funeral and activities surrounding that.

Although I haven’t travelled with a single, medium-sized handbag as we practiced in the class, I have significantly downsized. For the overnights and weekend trips, I have used a large Healthy Back Bag for everything. For week-long trips (both by air and by car) I have taken a 22-liter backpack. For the multiple-week, multiple-climate trips, I have used a small, wheeled carry-on bag and a cross-body handbag.

And the single most important travel item for me? My braided stretchy elastic laundry line. No clips needed. It’s been on every trip I’ve taken and takes no extra space. So I could probably travel with just the clothes on my back and a medium handbag.

The Handbag Master Class was certainly worth every minute and penny spent on it, even if I never travel with just a handbag!

-Sheryl S.

The next 6-week intensive class begins on June 5th, 2022.

Still on the fence? Don’t take our word for it!

It will change your life beyond just travel. It helps you to critically think through the “why’s” in a very fun and supportive atmosphere. You learn as much from your supportive classmates as you do from Brooke. Worth every penny and will ultimately save me a lot of money, travel stress and just enjoy traveling without any worry of ‘what if’s’.

-Kara Jacobsen


When I joined, my husband good-naturedly teased me about the idea of me getting my toiletries under control. I just packed him for a work trip, and when he came home, he said, “Man, money well spent!! My bag was so manageable!”

-Melanie Cornelius


It’s well worth the money and the time. You will learn a lot and laugh a lot and make new friends – and you will never think of travel packing the same again.

-Gail Henderson


I can’t believe how much this class is helping me realize what I need and don’t need for travel and for everyday living. I’ve donated and sold about 10 large boxes of stuff in the last two weeks.

-Juliette Sumida
