Clever Packing Hacks for Your Next Adventure
Go for height
When you are packing the perfect luggage, it's best to start with the perfect suitcase, and it’s important to get the right one for you.
According to the New York Times, whatever extra space you give yourself will be filled, whether you need it or not. Do a checklist for your trip and what you’ll need, and then work from there.
For most people, a 22-inch height case will suffice. In the age of cheaper flights and fast travel, you can even scale down further: according to backpacking industry experts Backpackies, you can use modern smaller-sized cases that you might associate with a carry-on to do the same job as bigger pieces.
Use a More Modern Travel Bag
How can you make your stuff fits into smaller spaces? According to Good Housekeeping, the trick is in using modern travel cases.
Knits and stretchy fabrics like spandex-infused basics will unfold and uncrinkle even after the quickest and roughest of packing ordeals. This extends to hard content too. Water bottles, item containers, and the like, can all be found in forms that are conducive to better packing.
Dry cleaning bags
Keep your clothes from crinkling by using dry cleaning bags. These prevent crinkles in your clothes. It also serves an even more important purpose. They are the carrier for your mementos and gifts that you bring home.
This is possibly the ultimate packing hack, for chaotic and precise packers alike. It gives protection against liquids, protection for your valuables and mementos, and it keeps your clothes fresh.
Taking the stress out of packing will assure that you will be satisfied on arrival on your next trip.
