Whether you are going home or traveling to other country/city for holidays vacation; some pretty interesting questions about packing comes to your mind like what to take with, what to leave behind, where to place it… Etc. I have taken oodles of trips and every time I came back, I thought, I could be gone even lighter. Hence I have collected the most pin-worthy packing hacks which can save you from some trouble like – wrinkled sweaters, broken precious perfume bottle, lose your bag at the airport and more…
Let’s start with The Golden Rule: Pack only half of the garments you were wanting to bring and double the cash!

  • Don’t fold the clothes instead of Roll them: It’s really faster compare to fold the garments, and you will get wrinkle free clothes; also it saves more space in your bag!
  • Mix and Match: to avoid over-packing stick to this rule: pack 3 different tops (perhaps a blouse and a sweater) and 3 bottom (light and dark wash denim is the best option). So you will have total 9 pairs!
  • Take advantages of shower cap: use an old shower cap or shoe cap and put your shoes in a cap; so it keeps the clothes clean in the suitcase. Plus, roll your socks and keep them in the shoes.
  • Pack your light colored clothes inside out to prevent stains and also it will make your clothes wrinkle-free. To keep the collar in place, roll your belt around it.
  • Avoid leaks: cut squares of plastic wrap and then place them in between the bottle and cap for your all toiletries. Keep your toiletries and makeup in a transparent bag so you will get everything in one place without messing the whole suitcase.
  • Don’t be Diva! Don’t pack your own hair dryer and straightener or curling iron; use hotel’s products…
  • To stay away from messy tangles with your different wires, roll them up firmly and toss them in a spectacles’ case. You can use the same idea for protecting your jewelry.
  • Put your breakables bottles like a glass perfume bottle in socks. This will keep it from scratching or catching on anything!
  • Pack an empty carry-bags for laundry. Capitalize the empty space of these bags by filling your First-Aid Kits.
  • Pack the heaviest items at the bottom of your suitcase: this is one of the most important thumb rule when you are dealing with rolling luggage.
  • Tag your luggage: Losing your luggage is a bad feeling. When your suitcase blends in with thousands of others and you are enabled to finding it out is even worse. To avoid this situation opt any unique style like paint or mark your suitcase with a bright color or attach colored bow or scarf to your suitcase and use unique name tags etc..

  • Ultimately, your luggage is an icon/symbol of yourself hence, make it stylish, practical, lightweight, and most durable!
