Travel Blog: How to Pack Like a Genius
Summers are great for packing a bag and heading out of town for some rest and relaxation. However, nothing kills a stress-free travel vibe more than lugging around the world’s heaviest suitcase.
If over-packing is one of your vacation vices, have no fear! We’ve done some research, and found a few easy-to-follow tips that will make preparing for summer travel a breeze.
Here’s how you can pack like a genius.
Lay Out Your Clothes
The only way to proficiently pack for a week is to plan your week out ahead of time. You don’t want to pack a pair of jogging shorts if running isn’t part of your daily routine. Know what you’re going to do on your vacation and pack accordingly.
Laying out outfits for each day and grouping them together when packing will help you to plan the packing process before you start stuffing your carryon bag.
If you’re leaving for a weeklong trip you shouldn’t be packing more than you need. You could wear pants and bottoms more than once, so you should coordinate your outfits so they all match. Stick to a simple color scheme, like black, so you can re-wear and match whatever is in your suitcase. This helps save an incredible amount of space.
Ditch the Travel Bottles
What’s the point in pouring your favorite shampoo into a travel size bottle so you can get through TSA? It just adds time and frustration to the travel process that you simply do not need. When you get to your destination you can pick up some of your favorite travel-sized shaving cream at a local pharmacy, and your hotel will have plenty of shampoo.
Pack Less than What You Need
Take less than what you need, and cut that in half. Stick to the bare minimum items and pick up little things you need along the way. You’ll be happier when your suitcase is light and your possessions are few.
Forget Folding – Let’s Roll
Rolling your clothing instead of folding them into your suitcase is a great way to pack efficiently. Even better, this technique can prevent your clothes from wrinkling during the trip!
Protect the Jewels
Want to ensure any jewelry you bring travels tangle-free? Try laying it between two sheets of cling wrap to prevent it from moving around. You can also keep track of smaller items, like earrings and rings, using an empty pill case.
Don’t let the packing process become a stressful aspect of your vacation. Make sure you follow some of these tips so you can travel with ease.
Take it easy and enjoy vacation!
