How to Efficiently Pack a SuitcaseUpdated 3 months ago

Efficiently packing a suitcase is like mastering a craft, that requires planning and smart organisation. Whether you're heading off for a short trip to the city or a longer journey, knowing how to pack your suitcase can truly enhance your travel experience.

Start by laying out all the things you want to take with you, considering how long you'll be away and the type of trip it is. Make a checklist so you don't overlook any essentials and can prioritise what to pack 

When it comes to clothes, go for pieces that can be mixed and matched easily. Choose fabrics that don't crease easily and try rolling your clothes instead of folding them to save space and prevent wrinkles. Use packing cubes or compression bags to make the most of your space and to keep items together.

Shoes can be bulky in your luggage so only pack the pairs you really need. Choose shoes that are versatile and comfortable. TOP TIP - Maybe even wear the heaviest of most bulkiest pair while travelling to save room in your suitcase.

For toiletries, use travel containers that meet airline requirements and to help save room. Get a toiletry bag, with compartments to stay organised and avoid any leaks or spills. Make sure you have your medications and toiletries handy, in your carry on bag for access while travelling.

For accessories, pick pieces that can enhance your outfits without taking up too much space in your luggage. Keep jewellery organised in a pouch to avoid tangling and utilise any spaces in shoes or between clothes to store smaller items.

Don't forget to leave some room in your suitcase for souvenirs or new items you might pick up during your trip. Planning ahead and leaving space will prevent overpacking. Make it easier to repack when its time to return home.

By following these suggestions you can pack like a super savvy traveller, saving space while reducing wrinkles and ensuring you have everything you need for a journey.
