Try these easy packing hacks on your next trip and never run out of space again!
Easy packing hack #1 – Roll Your Clothes
Maximize your luggage space by rolling your clothes instead of folding them – you’ll be amazed how much space you’ll save in this way.
As well as being able to pack that new sweater or your favorite snacks, you’ll help prevent your clothes from creasing.
Tip: If you pack your heaviest items at the bottom and work your way up to the lighter items, your bag will have an easier time fitting into the overhead bins and it won’t tip over when it’s left alone.
Easy packing hack #2 – Store Items Inside Your Shoes
Go the whole nine yards – your luggage’s size is limited, so pack deliberately. Don’t let the space inside your shoes go to waste. Use it to store socks, underwear, and other small items.
Tip: You can protect your fragile items (for example, perfume or valuable souvenirs) by putting them inside socks.
Easy packing hack #3 – Fold Your Clothes Inside Out
Another way to avoid creases and stains is to fold your light-colored and easily creased clothes inside out. That way if there is debris in your case, your pastels and delicate essentials will be safe.
Also, remember to protect your clothes from dirty shoe soles by placing your shoes inside shower caps or shoe bags before packing (if you don’t have these, you can always use a fabric or plastic bag).
Tip: Choose fabrics that resist creasing – for example, wool, lyocell, polyester or cashmere.
Easy packing hack #4 – Take Care Of Your Liquids
To prevent liquid products from bursting:
- Cut a small square of plastic wrap,
- Unscrew the lid of the product
- Set the plastic wrap on top
- Screw the lid back on.
But to be 100% sure, you can also put the product in a ziplock bag. That way if the lid pops open, at least, you can be sure it won’t get all over your belongings.
