One of the biggest problems we face when we go on a trip is having to pack our suitcase. Who likes to fold clothes to fit it in such a small space? For some, it is a science but in reality, it is very simple.
Whether you want to pack a suitcase for a week or a month, here are the best tips for packing a suitcase. Saves you time. Helps you fit more into your luggage.
Empty spaces are a no no
Empty spaces in your suitcase will make your clothes wrinkle. So try to fill them with paper or memory foam.
Pack only the necessary medications
Try to pack only those medicines that you think you may need. You can even take them out of their boxes and store them in Ziploc bags. This will take up less space and you can pack other necessary things.
Think about what items are really essential
The hair dryer or laptop can stay at home, most hotels have internet service and dryers in the bathrooms. If you go to the beach and want to bring items such as inflatables or diving lenses, consider buying them on the go.
Roll clothing instead of stacking
This way your clothes will occupy less space and you fit all the clothes you love into your luggage.
Pack in vacuum-sealed bags
Try to pack large volume items in sealed vacuum-sealed bags. For example, jackets or blankets. Another benefit is that when you’re back you can store dirty clothes in the bags.
Use the pyramid model
Place shoes along the sides of the suitcase. Then place long garments such as pants or dresses, leaving their ends outside to serve as a kind of cover.
In the remaining hollow of the suitcase, place your shirts and the rest of the clothes rolled up. Finally, cover with pants.
This way your clothes will not wrinkle and fragile things, like makeup, will not break.
Traveling with an umbrella is not an option
Umbrellas require a lot of space in a suitcase. It’s better if you wear a rubber raincoat for the rain. It will occupy a very small place in your suitcase and will be of the same help as an umbrella.
Pack miniature versions of your products
Some stores sell miniature items that do not take up much space. Sometimes we have to sacrifice cosmetics to carry things of great importance. This way it is easier to pack both.
Store small items safely
Small things like jewelry, cosmetics, USB sticks, you can be in sandwich bags. Also, you can get a box for pills and store them there to save.
Store your fancy clothes differently
Do not roll up dresses or tailor suits like other casual clothes. It is best to get a canvas cover that you can hang up.
