It’s time to embark on your long-awaited vacation. Then it’s on to paradise! But first and foremost, you must pack. Your excitement might quickly turn to panic when you see that empty luggage. Fortunately, we’ve compiled a list of packing techniques to make the dreaded task a breeze.
10 Packing Hacks To Save Your Time
1. Begin at the very bottom.
To make navigating the airport crowds a snap, pack all of your heavier stuff (shoes, cosmetic bags, etc.) at the bottom of your suitcase.
2. Chargers and headphones can be stored in a sunglasses case.
This is a quick hack to avoid the hassle of untangling headphones that have been tangled up in the bottom of your purse like there’s no tomorrow.
3. Wear thicker clothing.
This not only saves space in your suitcase, but it also allows you to use your jacket as a pillow while travelling.
4. Invest in a “Grab Bag” that has been pre-packed.
Fill it with all of your travel-sized toiletries and other essentials so you can leave at a moment’s notice. You’ll never have to worry about forgetting something important or having to unpack!
5. Take a laundry bag with you.
Bring a mesh washing bag with you on your trip to keep the dirty garments separate from the clean. A pillowcase can also be used for this purpose.
6. Purchase a luggage scale right now!
It’s the year 2017. Stop sacrificing an extra pair of shoes because you’re worried about exceeding the fifty-pound restriction. With a convenient luggage scale, you can eliminate the guessing.
7. As much as feasible, consolidate.
To save space and prevent your hat from losing its form after a day in a luggage, stuff socks, sunscreens, and other small objects into a hat or shoes.
8. Dry cleaning bags might help you avoid wrinkles.
To avoid creases, place wrinkle-prone items in a plastic dry cleaning bag.
9. Spills should be covered with plastic wrap.
It’s every girl’s worst nightmare: you open your makeup bag to find your $50 foundation has leaked, along with all of its travel-sized companions. Place plastic wrap between the bottle and the lid to protect yourself and your cosmetic bag.
10. Keep in mind the hotel’s services.
Hair dryers, body lotions, nail files, Q-tips, and other amenities are now included in many hotel rooms, particularly at 4-5 star facilities. Furthermore, many hotels provide high-quality shampoo and conditioner, requiring you to only bring your style equipment and products.
