Take advantage of packing aids


Use packing aids to compress your clothes into a tiny, vacuum packed, tight bundle that occupies minimum suitcase space. Some good aids include packing envelopes and packing aids such as Eagle Creek Compression Sacks. You can even go a step further and use color-coded or labelled packing cubes that makes you feel like an organized human being.

Whether you are a frequent traveler or a once-in the year voyager, these packing hacks will change the way you approach stacking your stuff, and you never have to go through the negative and embarrassing incidents again.

One of the worst things that can happen to you if you are travelling is to discover that you forgot an essential item, leaving you scrambling to discover the nearest store in your destination. The other side – you pack too much in your bag(s), and you become burdened with heavy bags to tow, in addition to looking disorganized and, if you are travelling by plane, paying an arm and a leg for airline baggage fees.
