When it comes to planning a vacation, the part you likely dread most is packing. How do you decide what to bring? Is it possible to keep your suitcase organized? We are here to help! Our tips and tricks will help you stay organized and actually find what you need in your suitcase so you can relax and enjoy your trip!
Utilize Packing Cubes
Packing cubes will become your best friend when packing for a vacation. No matter what size of suitcase you are using, you can find packing cubes that will fit comfortably. When you use packing cubes, you can group together your items into categories such as jeans, tops, and dresses so you can easily find the piece of clothing you are looking for.
Not only do cubes work great for packing, but you can also utilize compression cubes for your dirty laundry. Trying to figure out what to do with dirty laundry while traveling can be a hassle and a compression cube will allow you to keep your dirty clothes in one area while not taking up your entire suitcase.
Create a list ahead of time of what you plan to pack. Get as detailed as possible when writing this list. Put together outfits for each day and do not stray outside of this. This is the best way to keep your suitcase from overflowing with clothing that you won’t wear.
Choose a Color Palette
By picking a color palette for your trip, it will allow you to mix and match items, which means you can create more outfits out of the same items. Whether you want to go with all neutrals or stick with a certain color, it will make your life easier to know that all of your clothing will go together.
Roll Your Clothing
Rolling clothing prior to packing will save you space and keep your suitcase tidy while traveling. You will be able to utilize more space and still see each item of clothing easily. For pieces that you do not want to roll, consider placing them on the bottom of the cube, folded neatly.
