Packing can be one of the most stressful parts of traveling, especially when you’re not sure what to bring. Overpacking can lead to heavy bags and extra fees, while under-packing can leave you without essential items. In this blog post we’ll share out top 10 best packing tips for traveling.
Make a packing list
Start by making a list of everything you’ll need for your trip. This will help you stay organized and ensure that you don’t forget anything important.
Check The Weather
Checking the forecast for your destination helps ensure you pack accordingly. If it’s going to be cold, make sure to pack warm clothes, and a jacket. It it’s going to be hot, pack light weight clothing and sunscreen.
Choose Versatile Clothing
Choose clothing items that can be mixed and matched to create different outfit options. This will help you pack fewer items and still have plenty of options to wear.
Use Packing Cubes
Packing cubes are a great way to keep your suitcase organized and save space. You can use them to separate different types of clothing or to keep dirty clothes separate from clean ones.
Roll Your Clothes
Rolling your clothes instead of folding them can save space in your suitcase and help prevent wrinkles.
Pack a Travel-sized Laundry detergent
Packing a laundry pod instead of a bulky bottle will enable you to do a load of laundry while gone. This also helps you to pack less clothes knowing you will wash at least once while gone.
Pack a Small First-Aid Kit
This will ensure that you have essential items like band-aids, paid relievers, and allergy medicine. You never know when you might need them, and it’s always better to be prepared.
Pack a Reusable Water Bottle
This will help save money, especially in the airport! You can fill it up at a all water fountains or cafe’s and avoid buying expensive bottles of water.
Weigh Your Luggage
If you are flying be aware of what your luggage weighs – This will help you be prepared – you don’t want to be stuck in line taking items out of your suitcase holding up the line.
Leave Room for Souvenirs
Wherever you are traveling you will end up buying something on your trip and by saving space for this you won’t be stuck paying extra fees at the airport.
One of my most favorite ways to save space is by utilizing contact cases for my facial moisturizer, face wash, and under eye creams. These products do not require a lot of product – contact cases are perfect. Have fun and remember it’s vacation. Packing can feel stressful, but the best way to come at it is be realistic & Be prepared! Traveling is Fun! Take a deep breath and relax.
