Preparing for a trip is a pleasant chore. One of the stages is packing your luggage. You want to take everything and more. We'll show you how to fit everything in and save time and space in your suitcase.
When packing, it suddenly turns out that there is not as much space as it seemed at first glance. That's why you need to know how to pack properly. The South African shares its secrets.
Use packing cubes
Packing cubes are a kind of organizer that helps you distribute and categorize all the things you take. They are not expensive, but they will help you save time and space in your suitcase. For example, if you need to find something urgently, they allow you to do it easily without scattering anything around.
Fill all the empty spaces
Fill your shoes with socks, underwear, or other small items. Also, use the inside of the shoe for additional storage.
Roll up your clothes
We're sure you've heard it before, but we recommend rolling your clothes instead of folding them. This will save space. A nice advantage of this is that when you take your clothes out of your suitcase, they won't be wrinkled.
Take a microfiber towel with you
These towels are compact, lightweight, and dry faster. They are also ideal for traveling and take up less space than regular towels.
For traveling, buy smaller hygiene products
Instead of buying a large shampoo or shower gel, buy smaller jars. They are just the right size for traveling. Alternatively, use reusable shipping containers to save space and comply with airline regulations.
Wear bulky items on your body
If your destination is a country with a cold climate and you need a winter coat or boots, wear them while traveling. Such items take up a lot of space in a suitcase or bag.
Use lockable bags or organizers
Put your hygiene products in a lockable organizer. This will help to organize them, and in case of damage, the contents will not leak out on clothes and other things.
Take multifunctional clothes with you
We advise you to take basic clothes or clothes that will suit you for many outfits. Choose an outfit that will suit you for all occasions.
A limited number of shoes
The bad news for shoe lovers is that shoes take up a lot of space, so you won't be able to take all pairs with you. Choose a versatile pair that will suit any outfit.
To keep your jewelry organized, use a jewelry organizer to store small items such as earrings, rings, and necklaces. This way, your accessories won't get lost among other things in your bag.
